    Well look at the bright side the Wii U managed to show a 1K growth in the week which included Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and now there is nothing until the end of May in the form of Mario Kart 8. I see Wii U hitting PSP/PS Vita TV levels at somepoint before May.

    Everything else is holding nicely (3DS, PS Vita) and as expected (Everything else) although the real shakeup doesn’t begin until next week.

    @Legendaryboss,
    Yeah, how bright that a 1st party exclusive title increased the sales of Wii U by 1k :lol:

    Btw, there isn’t a hold of rest of them. 3DS is way down over last year (about half the sales of last year), while Vita is way up (150% up YoY). Looks like Vita can have a decent shot at surpassing PS3 at least in Japan.

    Vita sales are pleasantly surprising, considering there is hardly any noteworthy software releases on it right now, as seen from the software charts. Rest of the year should be very good for Vita.
