A rather subdued week with only a few minor releases, but its interesting to note that Pokemon Black & White 2 is nearly the 3 million mark, and Dragon Quest X, while not setting the charts on fire, is slowly creeping up to 1 million.

3DS – 64,159 (74,293)
Vita – 14,106 (50,070)
PS3 – 11,813 (12,433)
PSP – 9,065 (10,266)
Wii – 6,958 (8,680)
PS2 – 1,078 (1,098)
Xbox 360 – 815 (875)
DSi  – 1,169 (1,488)

A week with less software releases, means a week with less hardware sales. The Vita drops significantly showing the machine needs a constant supply of support to maintain its sales, rather than intermittent hits. The 3DS’s strong support over the past 6 months is while the Japanese are flocking to Nintendo’s portable wonder.
