Poor sales from Playstation platforms has accounted for low software sales overall.
Japanese sales tracker Media Create have released their findings for Christmas week 2014, revealing that overall sales figures for gaming software has decreased over 20% from 2013, with 1,517,000 units sold. Although the finger has been pointed at Playstation 4 and PS Vita’s disappointing sales figures over the Christmas period as the main reason for the slump in sales, it is important to remember that neither device had the benefit of a major release. Combined, the sales figures for Vita and PS4 only reached 41.30% of 2013’s total.
The 3DS had a more successful Christmas period, with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate selling 2.34 million units and Super Smash bros. 2 million.
