The last six weeks of the year are an incredibly crucial time, with many video game companies generating over half of their profits in the short window. Sales reports out of Japan show soaring numbers in December, with multiple games and consoles selling in the hundreds of thousands per week. However, as expected, sales numbers have declined steeply since the turn of the new year.

Monster Hunter X continues to be the top-selling game (although its sales were cut in half from last week) followed by Monster Strike, both 3DS exclusives. Unsurprisingly, this made 3DS the top-selling hardware for the week yet again with over 60,000 combined sales. PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita each managed to sell over 30,000 units this week, but Wii U sales were slightly under 25,000.
