Japan Charts: PS4 sales keep declining, 3DS sells 34K

                                          Yes, we know the Xbox One isn’t out in Japan yet.

The newest results for last week’s videogame sales in the Japan have now been revealed by Mediaa Crate. After the tremendous success the Playstation 4 had in the United States and the United Kingdom, it hasn’t quite justified Japanese customers to go and buy the system. 29K isn’t badBut, it is bad for a hyped system like the PS4 to just be selling 29K. The 3DS sold more that the Playstation 4 with the 3DS and the LL (XL) combined. The Vita as of late, has been surging and picking up the abysmal sales it has been having. The Wii U on the other hand, has been having a sluggish trend, being stuck with 7,654 consoles sold. Here’s the best selling consoles/handhelds for the week of 3/10/14 – 3/16/14:

 

  • PlayStation 4 – 29,677 (35,294)
