It’s the school holidays in Japan at the moment meaning that the latest Media Create hardware chart paints a slightly rosier picture than usual. Combined console sales are up by 11% week over week with the PS Vita narrowly edging out the 3DS XL to take first place with 41 073 units shifted during the latest sales period.

Interestingly, sales of the original 3DS model rose substantially week over week while 3DS XL sales dwindled by 17%. Perhaps there was some 3DS promotion in Japan during the past week that we’re unaware of?
