Barely beating out the combined totals of the two 3DS models, the PlayStation 4 held first place once again in the Japanese charts by selling over 35,000 units, which represents a drop of about 30,000 units since the week before. Also on the hardware side of things, the PlayStation Vita managed to rise 10,000 units to over 31,000.

The reason for the bumped up Vita sales is probably Soul Sacrifice Delta, as it was the #1 selling game overall at 48,786. Past that, there isn’t much excitement for the games, though Ar no Surge on PS3 did debut to sales of slightly over 27,000.

Here’s how each system sold, along with the top 20 selling games in Japan between March 3rd and March 9th, 2014, according to Media Create:
