This week’s Media Create hardware chart reflects the dwindling console market in Japan, with total sales down by 17% week over week and by 11% compared to the same period last year. The 3DS XL once again claimed top spot while the PS Vita leapfrogged the Wii U into second place. PS Vita sales increased by 16% week over week – most likely due to the impending launch of SCE Japan Studio’s co-op action RPG Freedom Wars on June 26th.

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

• 3DS XL – 21 267 (30 924)
