The 3rd spot sees Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2nd for the PS3 finding its home this week. A new entry for the 3DS from a popular dating simulation series takes the 7th position, that game being New Love Plus+. Positions 8 and 9 are taken up J-Stars Victory VS for the PS3 and PS Vita, respectively. Rounding out the software chart top 10 is another entry, this time for the PS Vita, which is Hakuoki SSL: Sweet School Life.

The PS Vita takes 2nd with 39,752 units shifted. Meanwhile the new kid on the block, the PS4, seems to be holding its own in 3rd place shifting 23,327 consoles for the week, the figure is down from last week but it isn’t all doom and gloom. Which brings us to the Wii U, I mean that in a good way, the system shifted 13,026 units this week which is great considering it doesn’t have a game in the top 10. So it managed to break double figures on its own strength which is something new for Nintendo. We can’t wait to see if this indicates a change in fortunes for Nintendo with their home console, we’ll see what the latest charts say soon.
