On sale for two days, Super Smash Bros for Wii U finished in first place last week, selling over 227,000 units. The launch of such a big game also helped the Wii U hardware, which jumped from 12,000 to 24,000.

Smash Bros aside, it was a dominant week for the 3DS, taking home the top three spots in hardware and four out of the top five software spots.

As for PlayStation, the PlayStation Vita hardware sales were strong at 22,000, while the PlayStation 4 rose slightly to 16,000. In terms of software, it was a disappointing launch for Ubisoft’s The Crew, placing in 20th on PS4 and moving 9,000 units.
