Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 debuts on top, even if it didn’t make numbers even remotely comparable to last week’s launch of Dragon Quest Builders, that keeps selling fairly well even into its second week. Together, they pushed the PS4 to the top of the hardware chart, beating both Vita and 3DS.

Wii U seems to have completely ran out of steam after the holidays. This might be in part due to an apparent shortage after the holidays. On the other hand, the Xbox One received a small surge in sales this week, with almost 300 units sold after a long period under a hundred.
