Coming as a surprise – the Wii U has a gotten a large bump in sales – no doubt due to the holiday Season peaking and Nintendo’s aggressive marketing strategy. For the week - 74,903 Wii U’s were sold. For comparison sakes last week numbers were 48,242.

As expected the 3DS has topped the hardware charts with the Wii U coming in second. It is rather disappointing that the Vita still has not picked up.

3DS LL – 130,710
Wii U – 74,903
3DS – 50,846
Vita – 30,440
PS3 – 23,959
PSP – 6,475
Vita TV – 5,506
Wii – 1,197
Xbox 360 – 536

In terms of software Puzzle & Dragon Z for the 3DS debuts at number 1 with 543,630 units sold. Pokemon and Mario are showing their incredible legs at number 2 and 3 respectively. What I find fascinating is that most of the software in the top 30 are either on the 3DS or Wii U.
