    Almost 20M PSPs and nearly 10M 3DSs. No wonder that the developement for the Vita is stagnating. It needs a push, badly.

    Interesting no DS sales were given. No doubt that would have taken top spot no?

    Also amazing AC was the second best seller after only coming out in November. Also I don’t think that figure includes downloads either does it?
