This week’s Japanese sales charts prove the nation is gripped in 3DS fever. After enduring a tepid start, Nintendo’s handheld has become something of an unstoppable force, dominating the software and hardware sales charts alike.

Meanwhile, the Vita continues to lurk beneath the decisive 10k units mark, selling 44 consoles less than the previous week. Sales for the PS3 and PSP also dipped.

Feel free to cover your eyes as we reveal the disappointing numbers below.
