Some big hardware bumps as Japan's holiday season gets under full swing. The Wii U has decent second week numbers but that Monster Hunter U drop is a little concerning as far as third parties go. The top selling game comes from Level 5 so it's nice to see them get some love. Paper Mario Sticker Star has some respectable numbers and Yakuza 5 is still hanging in there.

3DS LL- 206,793 (136,373) (N/A)

3DS OG- 112,052 (75,126) (367,691)

3DS total- 319,025 (211,499) (367,691)

WiiU- 126,916 (308,142) (N/A)

PS3- 42,976 (36,994) (65,199)

PSP- 33,002 (19,637) (64,468)

PSV- 14,446 (11,039) (324,589)

Wii- 10,346 (6,714) (60,916)

360- 1,760 (1,216) (3,584)

Well, the 3DS has to slow down soon, I hear they have a low birth rate in Japan so there can't be that many babies left.

You're forgetting the clones.

Sony Japan should start considering moving all that Vita advertising money back into the PSP.

Found a pie chart, Apparently Nintendo may own Japan.

Japan was renamed Nintendoland for the last couple of weeks.

I can't wait for next weeks numbers. I'm wondering If the 3DS will hit 10 Million units before the first week of 2013. It's currently at 9,118,403 after week 50.

That's a pretty tall order. The 3DS hit 400,00 in week 51 of last year but this week's numbers show the 3DS trailing behind last year.
