PlayStation Vita Sees Major Sales Bump in Japan, 3DS Still Collectively the #1 Seller


The price cut hit Japan last week for the PlayStation Vita and it has
seen a massive sales bump. While it ended up #1 on the charts, the XL
version of the 3DS chimed in at a cool 50k with the regular 3DS selling
another 27k, putting the 3DS itself still on top for total sales.
However, what’s more impressive for the vita is not only did it see a
sales bump, it finally has games appearing in the top 10 for weekly
sales – a list typically dominated lately by Nintendo with an occasional
PS3 title.

  1. [PS3] Dynasty Warriors 8
  2. [3DS] Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies
  3. [PSV] Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus
  4. [3DS] Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission
  5. [3DS] Animal Crossing: New Leaf
  6. [PS3] Macross 30: Ginga o Tsunagu Utagoe
  7. [PSV] Phantasy Star Online 2
  8. [PS3] Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
  9. [PSP] Shining Ark
  10. [3DS] Dragon Quest VII: Warriors of Eden
  1. PlayStation Vita – 62,543 (11,456)
  2. Nintendo 3DS XL – 50,265 (49,317)
  3. Nintendo 3DS – 27,174 (25,412)
  4. PlayStation 3 – 25,725 (18,529)
  5. PSP – 11,171 (8,981)
  6. Wii U – 10,021 (9,633)
  7. Wii – 1,383 (1,317)
  8. Xbox 360 – 486 (473)

Nintendo fans can rest easy knowing the 3DS hasn’t slowed down yet despite the Vita bump, and Vita owners should be reassured. Could a price drop elsewhere also boost the sales like this? Wii U sales are still low, but they are ever so slightly ahead of the previous weeks numbers.
