  5. Vita – 5,155
  6. PSP – 5,082
  7. Wii – 965
  8. Xbox 360 – 610

The analysis fir this week is easy: Monster Hunter is still on top, the 3DS is still on top, and by far, selling respectively 474,000 units and almost 160,000.

Interestingly enough, after the end of the suspension on sales of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Square Enix’s MMORPG jumped back to 3rd position (and the suspension was lifted only in the weekend), showing that its momentum is far from ended.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
