We have obtained some new info about how well the next-gen consoles are selling overseas, specifically in Belgium and The Netherlands.

From the looks of it, Sony is having widespread success. The PS3 continues to sell well and the PS4 keeps gaining ground. It is interesting to see that the 3DS is keeping up with next-gen systems, and is completely dominating the handheld market. We needs to remember though, the Xbox One has not released in either Belgium or The Netherlands.

Unfortunately, we do not have exact sales numbers at this time but they are expected to release later today.
