Nintendo 3DS is still Japan's best selling system

Over three times as many sold than other consoles

Over in Japan, the 3DS is still dominating the battle of the consoles, selling over 61,000 units in this week's Japanese sales charts. In comparison, the second best seller was PlayStation 3, which only managed just over 20,000 units.

Its closest handheld rival, the PSVita, only managed just under 6000 units - ensuring that Japan is still dedicated to Nintendo's 3DS system.

In terms of games sales, the 3DS managed to keep three titles within the top ten. Those games are AKB48+Me, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy and, of course, New Super Mario Bros. 2.
