X1 vs PS4 vs Wii U launch comparisons will be done once all of 2013 sales data is in.

was DS software still outselling PSV/PSP software combined. What a beast.


Kowan (on 08 January 2014)

Media Create sales have been released: Vita sales(vita plus Vita TV): 87142 FFX/X-2 PS3: 185918 FFX/X-2 VITA: 149132 FFX VITA: 25443. So that means adjustments are needed.


ganoncrotch (on 08 January 2014)

The 3ds should be put on a hardware chart of it's own, the other 3 are just all merged together in a line of "not the 3ds". Vita starting to pick up a bit tho that's pretty cool to see, hopefully a few more systems in peoples hands might convince devs to throw it a bone here and there.


aryu (on 08 January 2014)

Great to see handhelds doing well. The PS4 trend spikes made me chuckle.


chase123 (on 08 January 2014)
