Japan Weekly Sales Charts 18/2/13 – 24/2/13

That time of the week is upon us again…Japanese Weekly Sales Charts. I’m not even going to waffle on about what came in first for hardware, it’s been the same thing for over a year now. But there was a massive surprise with the PS Vita outselling the Wii U for the first time in Japan.


Should Nintendo be worried though? Probably not, not when you see the sales of the 3DS and the 3DS LL (XL) combined which accounted for in excess of 74 thousand units shifted. The only hardware that was even close to that was the PS3 with 18,529 units sold. Sales of the PS Vita can’t be attributed to a game release as there’s nothing in the top 10 for the Vita so it is curious to see. We’ll see how it pans out next week for the Wii U.
