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?
