FIFA 17 05 555x328

It was another good week for the PlayStation 4, as FIFA 17 debuted at #1 overall on the software chart with 57,000 sold, and the console itself moved another 36,000 units, bringing its total since the slimmer model launched to over 182,000.

Even with a couple of new releases (Demon Gaze II and FIFA 17) finishing in the top five, the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 continued to see a drop in hardware sales. For the Vita, it fell to under 9,400, while the PS3 was under 1,000.
