Following a great week for the PlayStation Vita because of Persona 4: Dancing All Night, things returned to normal, with the system dropping to 14,000 in sales and P4D selling 13,000 copies, bringing its lifetime total to 107,000.

Elsewhere, the only new release in the top 20 was Zettai Geigeki Wars: Metropolis Defenders on PS Vita, which sold just 2,800 copies. The PlayStation 3 version finished outside the top 20.

Despite the slow week, PlayStation 4 sales actually increased by 3,700, moving it into second place behind the new 3DS XL.
