Media Create: Xbox One Fumbles at Launch as 3DS Reins Supreme

The latest Media Create sales have just been released, and it has been quite the strange week. The Xbox One just launched in Japan, and sold a mere 25,000 units. By comparison, both the Wii U and PS4 sold more than 300,000 units in their launch weeks.

As is to be expected, Yokai Watch 2 is still holding onto first place, selling another 60,000 units last week. Dragon Quest X for the 3DS is not far behind, however, taking second place. Several Sony titles took other spots in the top ten; however, Mario Kart can be seen in eighth place.

On the console side, the 3DS sold roughly 29,000 units while the Wii U sold 7,500.
