The full list of hardware sales can be seen below. Unfortunately, the PSP is still trouncing the Vita week after week.

  • PS3 – 42,218
  • 3DS LL – 39,046

Nintendo continues to rule the portable market with the 3DS and is showing no sign of letting up. What must Sony do with the Vita to turn things around? Is it all just a matter of a lack of software? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.
