Written by: / / No Comments

This week’s Media Create hardware chart sees lifetime sales of the PS Vita in Japan pass the 1 million mark. Unfortunately the handheld sold just 7 957 units during the past week, well behind the PSP which shifted a further 17 769 units.

PS3 Super Slim White

The PS3 and Xbox 360 both enjoyed more sales success than usual thanks to the release of Resident Evil 6, and in the PS3’s case – a new ‘Super Slim’ model. PS3 sales were up by 373% week-over-week while Xbox 360 sales increased by 560%.

The Wii U’s Japanese launch is less than two months away so it will be very interesting to see what kind of impact a new Nintendo console has on the market.

Here’s the latest hardware chart in full (previous sales data appears in brackets):
