It was an interesting week for the Media Create sales charts. Animal Crossing : New Leaf sales have gone down a smidge, yet is still dominates the top 3, while Dragon Quest VII : Fighters of Eden saw a major drop off, nearly going down by 60%. Metal Gear Rising : Revengeance slashed its way to the top of the chart, beating Dragon Quest VII in the initial release week. Mario Kart 7 and New Super Mario Bros 2, meanwhile, keep inching closer to the 2 million sales mark, each looking to join the wildly popular Animal Crossing entry.

Console sales have seen more drops this week. Specifically, 3DS and PS3 sales remain the top 2, although both have seen an sizable decline, while Wii U sales have seen an incremental decline in overall sales. Vita sales have overtaken PSP, with Wii and XBox 360 sales hitting rock bottom. Otherwise, console sales remain pretty much the same as last week. Lets hope the infusion of new titles to the Wii U, as well as future announcements about the PS4 titles, will cause an upswell of activity.
