Kind of expected a larger boost for PS4 from Final Fantasy XIV but we shall see what comes of it for the next weeks.

Vita ALMOST did it twice in a row lol, almost.

Wow at 3DS and Vita being neck and neck. Is that more a positive for Vita or a negative for 3DS?

This time last year, the 3DS sold more than all the hardware combined this week. Huh.

Sad to see the Vita drop below 20k.

I thought that the depressing month in Japan supposed to be May.
Or maybe it comes sooner? Well, Youkai Watch now possibly joined 1 Million Club.

Did people really believe 14 was going to move a bunch of units?

This honestly to me is the weirdest thing since some people expected big things out of Pikmen.

Thanks for posting this, Hero of Legend.

The new 3DS Ace Attorney is basically just a port of the iOS release, isn't it? First week seems more in line with a best price release, but if the game seems like a low budget effort, than it may not be bad.

Even with 11 in the top 20 the 3DS goes lower (no big releases of course). This looks like saturation.

Yeah even if the numbers seem low, PS4 getting a 13-14k baseline with basically nothing is not bad, the rest (except maybe Vita) is worrying. Fire Iwata.

This time last year, the 3DS sold more than all the hardware combined this week. Huh.

Sad to see the Vita drop below 20k.
I think SAO is out tomorrow, so we should see Vita rise up above 20k next week. Otherwise this week is just sad.

Shouldn't the Wii U have 1 in the top 20 with the PSP having 0?

Also, those numbers are just depressing, the 3DS alone last year outsold every hardward this week :/

More like the consumption tax hit harder than most people realized. People don't like paying more for stuff then they did before. Who knew.
