This week’s Media Create hardware chart sees the 3DS XL maintain its considerable lead over the PS Vita, while total console sales are down by 9% week over week and by 15% compared to the same period last year.

As far as the latest generation of home consoles and portables is concerned, the Wii U and PS4 continue to struggle in Japan due to a dearth of new software catering to local gamers’ tastes, and also as a result of consumers spending more and more of their gaming time playing on mobile devices.

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

• 3DS XL – 21 459 (21 267)
• PS Vita – 11 937 (13 299)
• Wii U – 10 715 (12 249)
• PS4 – 7 009 (8 395)
• PS3 – 6 339 (6 564)
• 3DS – 4 852 (5 308)
• PSP – 2 335 (4 325)
• PS Vita TV – 1 444 (1 436)
• Xbox 360 – 214 (231)
