The 3DS XL is back to its winning ways on the latest Media Create hardware chart, with its closest competitor the PS Vita some 11 271 units behind. Total console sales are down by 16% week over week and are 12% lower than they were during the same period last year.

Both the PS4 and Wii U are currently struggling to gain any sort of momentum due to there being a dearth of new software for either console. Wii U sales may temporarily pick up with the release of Mario Kart 8 on May 29th but it’s hard to imagine either system consistently staying ahead of the 10 000 units sold per week threshold until there’s a steady stream of new PS4 or Wii U releases.

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

• 3DS XL – 28 414 (31 979)
• PS Vita – 17 143 (23 030)
• PS4 – 8 480 (11 486)
• PS3 – 7 684 (9 252)
• Wii U – 7 613 (8 079)
• 3DS – 7 529 (7 644)
• PSP – 2 022 (2 321)
• PS Vita TV – 1 351 (1 687)
• Xbox 360 – 233 (278)
