Maybe things are looking up for the PlayStation Vita. …well, in Japan, at least.
According to GamesIndustry.biz citing the weekly Japanese sales charts, the PlayStation Vita has enjoyed a big surge, moving 13,091 units as compared to the 4,021 it moved the week prior. This also means it outsold the PSP, which hasn't been a common occurrence in recent months.
Of course, the Nintendo 3DS XL remains at the top of the heap; handhelds continue to dominate sales in Japan, while the top-selling console, the PlayStation 3, only sold 17,035 units. Here's the list:
Maybe it's a sign of better times ahead for the Vita. We're not sure which new title (if any) prompted such a rise, but there are no Vita games in the top 5 for software. Maybe Sony's portable just suddenly got a lot more attractive. It is a pretty slick little device, right?
