Hardware flattens, PSPgo delisted
Hardware numbers weren't much different compared to last week, and 3DS stayed on top despite only having one offering in the software top 20.
The biggest change for the week, was PSPgo being removed from the chart.
The handheld has been moving only double digits for eons, and with Vita set for release, it only made sense for the firm to stop tracking its sales. Meanwhile, PS2 is still moving units, and sold 1,280 for the week.
Hardware figures are below, with last week's sales in parentheses.
- 3DS: 55,025 (58,504)
- PS3: 28,596 (30,362)
- PSP: 25,271 (25,401)
- Wii: 12,161 (10,301)
- DSi LL: 2,721 (2,382)
