Exclamation Last Week's Japanese Vita Sales Barely Rate Compared to the 3DS

A great week for the 3DS gives it a near 47-1 sales advantage on the week over the Vita.

You’d be crazy to judge Vita before Christmas St. Patrick’s Day.

Is the Persona 4 Golden out in Japan yet? That will move some units. It won't make it a hit, but it will help. Unless it is already out, then disregard what I just said.

The release of Persona 4: The Golden resulted in the surge of sales of PlayStation Vitas. During its debut week, the game sold 137,076 units in Japan. Media Create stated that the game's outstanding sales that surpassed the debuts of other titles from Persona series may be due to the exposure the Persona 4 game has had in other forms of media. As of mid-July 2012, the game had sold 193,412 units in Japan.

So it helped for a week.

So it just needs a few more niche titles...

It needs a $100 price cut and a Monster Hunter exclusive. It will get neither of those things. Soon, it will die.

The 3DS (and the Wii's) success is impart due to the failure of the Japanese game industry. They simply do not wan to spend the money on next gen like games so they're mostly snuggling up with Nintendo to keep team sizes, and costs, down.
