Total units sales for Dark Souls 2 came in at 261,147 over three days of availability.

Hardware sales were down for the week with the exception of two entries: PlayStation 3 and PSP. The jump in sales for PSP was slim, as it only moved 36 extra units week-over-week.

PS3, which was fourth on hardware chart, moved 14,128 units – a 2,026 jump over the prior week.

Despite retaining its slot as the top-selling hardware since launch, PlayStation 4 unit sales were down 5,617 over the week prior. However, no new titles were released for the platform during the period.

PlayStation Vita was once again ahead of its portable rival, 3DS LL but not by much: the former moved 28,270 units while the later sold 23,372 units.
