No real surprises here, as 3DS and PSP have taken most spots with anything Dragon Quest related always going to sell a LOT.

Now, a look at the hardware:

  • 1. 3DS: 101,075 (55,212)
  • 2. PS3: 14,799 (14,771)
  • 3. PSP: 10,547 (10,617)

  • 7. PS2: 1,106 (1,027)
  • 8. DSi LL: 665 (628)
  • 9. DSi: 379 (431)

Wow. The Wii still struggles and the confusion with the Wii U after E3 will not leave Nintendo in a good place for the home console market. On the handheld side of things however, it’s a different story. The 3DS is selling a ratio of nearly 13:1 to Sony’s PS Vita. 13 to 1! Hopefully Nintendo can replicate the handheld success with home consoles sooner rather than later
