Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance made its expected debut at the top of the Media Create sales charts this week. With 213,579 first week sales, the game easily beat the 2012 edition of Konami's Pro Baseball Spirits series.

The Kingdom Hearts 3D release appears to have given 3DS another hardware boost. The system reached 121,921 units this week. Square Enix and Nintendo released a bundle with a special 3DS system. It's unclear how many of these units were sold, but the bundles are included in the overall game sales figure.

Pro Baseball Spirits sold best on PS3 this year. The PS3 version took second place on the Media Create chart with 90,433 units. The PSP followed with 60,141 units. The Vita version came in at 11 with 17,264 units.

Also placing in the top 20 this week were volume six of Namco Bandai's PS3 Idolmaster anime/game hybrid discs, with 17,759 units Silent Hill HD Edition on PS3 with 7,971 units, and New Little King Story on Vita with 7,141 units.
