Only having two games hit six-digit sales figures in this week seems sad.

Hardware sales looked about like this:

3DS – 218,351
Wii-U – 48,927
Vita – 40,525
PS4 – 30,145
PS3 – 10,142
XB1 – 815

Those numbers look high — and they are, compared to a normal week (except for Xbox One) — but in the context of a holiday week, that’s fairly lackluster. 3DS is the only system doing well, but it’s performing well in the shadow of its predecessor. Will Ps4’s wave of Q1 software change things up?
