Even with Monster Hunter Stories for 3DS debuting at #1 and selling 141,000 copies – and raising New 3DS LL sales by 3,000 – the PlayStation 4 remained the top-selling piece of hardware, dropping just 5,000 units week-on-week to finish with 31,100 sold.

BlazBlue: Central Fiction for PS4 was the #2 best-selling game of the week, moving 20,600 copies. The PS3 version of Central Fiction, meanwhile, finished in 6th with 9,700 sold. There wasn’t much else on the software chart, though it’s worth pointing out that Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition is only a week or two away from crossing 900,000 sold lifetime at retail.
