The other consoles didn’t fare nearly as well as the 3DS, with sales flat across the board. The PSP was the biggest loser this week, selling 1 387 units less than its previous tally. However, despite this loss it was still able to remain ahead of the PS Vita which continues to precariously hold onto fourth position.
