The Wii U released last week in Japan.
In comparison, the PS3 sold 37,000 units and the Xbox 360 managed just 1,200 units.
In handhelds, the 3DS has already passed the PS3 in lifetime sales, this week reaching 8.8 million units with a week’s sales of 212,000 (the PS3 has sold 8.7 million).
That’s not bad considering the 3DS has only been available for just over 90 weeks against the PS3′s 317 weeks.
The Vita has maintained its 11,000 units number from last week, taking the total up to 1.07 million. It was outsold by the PSP by a factor of almost 2:1, the 3DS outselling it 20:1.
The biggest selling game was Yakuza 5 on the PSP with 363,717 units. New Super Mario Bros U was the biggest selling Wii U game, with 170,563 sales.
