The system sold close to a quarter of a million units during the seven day period, according to Media Create figures reported by Andriasang.

Its closest competitors, PS3 and PSP, both moved under 75,000 units, while Wii leapt above Vita with just shy of 50,000 sales. Sony's new portable sold almost 43,000 units.

On the software front, 3DS games took the top four spots on the chart, with third placed Monster Hunter 3G becoming the system's third million seller following Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land, which placed first and second.
