With the PlayStation 4 out on February 22nd, the PlayStation 3 is enjoying its last few weeks as the most recent PlayStation console by taking the #1 and #2 spots on the software charts with Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS. Full Boost and Diablo III. The PlayStation Vita also had a nice debut in the form of Disgaea 4 Return at #4.

Despite the positive sales for those new games, hardware numbers were basically even on every single platform, with the PlayStation Vita at 1,000 units less being the only highlight.
