Posted on Thursday, December 13 @ 08:56:43 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

The Big N is a force to be reckoned with, especially in the handheld space. Sure, smartphone gaming has taken a significant bite out of the portable market, but in Japan, the 3DS is king. In fact, the handheld has already managed to surpass the PS3 in lifetime sales.

The 3DS sold 211,499 units last week in the country, bringing the total sales of the 3DS in the region to 8,799,378 units. The PlayStation 3 however, has sold 8,716,260 units in Japan since it launched several years ago, now putting it behind the 3DS.

The situation only gets worse for Sony, as PS Vita sales continue to drag. Check out the full list of last week's hardware sales via Media Create's chart below:
