In something that happens very rarely, the PlayStation Vita beat the Nintendo 3DS last week in Japan for hardware sales, with Sony’s handheld moving 24,078 units, while both 3DS SKUs moved 23,562 units. The PlayStation Vita can attribute this win to dropping 3DS sales due to no big new releases, with the Vita also receiving 3rd Robot Wars Z: Jigoku Hen, which debuted in 2nd with over 128,000 in sales.

On the software charts, 3rd Robot Wars Z: Jigoku Hen for the PS3 was #1 after selling over 142,000 copies, with Titanfall for the Xbox 360 debuting at a rather high (for an Xbox 360 game) 9th place following sales of 10,478.

Here’s how each system sold, along with the top 20 selling games in Japan between April 7th – 13th, 2014, according to Media Create:
