Media Create Japanese Hardware Sales for week ending March 16th: PS4 and PS Vita lead the pack

Written by: / / No Comments

PS4

There’s not much separating the PS4 and PS Vita at the top of the latest Media Create hardware chart, although Sony’s new home console is shedding sales at a rapid rate if you compare the past three weeks’ figures.

Total console sales are down by 6% week over week and 21% compared to the same period last year. This decline could be partly due to Dark Souls II being the only new software release this week, but it’s also a symptom of the shrinking Japanese console market as people spend more and more time gaming on their smartphones and other portable devices.

Here’s this week’s hardware chart in full (previous sales data appears in brackets):

• PS4 – 29 677 (35 294)
• PS Vita – 28 270 (31 325)
• 3DS XL – 23 372 (24 192)
• PS3 – 14 128 (12 102)
• 3DS – 10 772 (10 876)
• Wii U – 7 654 (7 773)
• PSP – 3 461 (3 425)
• PS Vita TV – 1 447 (1 962)
• Xbox 360 – 278 (300)
