The weekly Media Create chart results out of Japan are now available, and this week they're dominated by new releases on PS4 and Vita, though Nintendo's hardware sales have maintained their momentum.

As you can see in the top 20 below, new releases on PS4 and Vita are the headline story, with Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization and World of Final Fantasy leading the way. Monster Hunter Stories (now close to a quarter of a million retail sales) is the first 3DS title in 10th, while the delayed River City Ransom SP (minus the co-op that was once expected) only managed to secure 14th place and 6,268 sales in its debut week.

Moving on to hardware, both PS4 and Vita saw small increases, no doubt helped by all of those new releases. New 3DS LL (XL) still held second place with an increase in sales, though, with the rest of the 3DS family also holding steady; the Wii U is still, sadly, selling less than 2,000 units per week.

  1. PlayStation 4 – 30,375 (27,069)
  2. New 3DS LL – 15,151 (14,092)
  3. PlayStation Vita – 10,392 (8,853)
  4. 2DS – 7,103 (7,404)
  5. New 3DS – 3,090 (2,700)
  6. Wii U – 1,898 (1,919)
  7. PlayStation 3 – 610 (763)
  8. Xbox One – 335 (752)
  9. 3DS – 244 (370)
  10. 3DS LL – 72 (77)

A quiet week from Nintendo's perspective, with new titles on Sony's hardware stealing the limelight.
