Japanese Charts, Jan 2 – Jan 8: 3DS off to a flier in 2012

This weeks latest Japanese charts are in and it’s the 3DS which yet again dominates this week, selling a whopping 240,819 units.

Elsewhere in the hardware chart the PS3 has had another great week, selling 74,459 units, closely followed by the PSP which sold 71,033 units.

Next in the chart is the Wii, which sold 49,525 units, while the Vita continues to plod along, selling slightly more than last week with 42,915 units.

When you look at the software chart (see below), it’s quite obvious to see why the 3DS is doing so well, with games such as Mario Kart, Super Mario 3D Land and Monster Hunter all selling very well.

It will be interesting to see how things take off for Vita when there are similar games of interest.
