  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.
