The Wii U has seen its best week of sales since the week of Christmas last year. Last week, the Wii U moved 187,000+ units of hardware with over a million units of Mario Kart 8. While neither number took over the #1 spot, Mario Kart 8 wasn’t the only high profile release last week, as Watch Dogs also came out in the same week. This helped with the PlayStation 4 showing a 64% increase in sales week on week, which helped it edge out the Wii U – which saw an impressive 486% increase in sales. Mario Kart 8 grabbed the #2 spot in software sales, falling behind the PlayStation 4 version of Watch Dogs.

|9||PS3||Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: Missing Link||81,675|
Overall, it was a really strong week of sales for the video game industry. What do you think?
