Japanese Charts, Oct 8-14: 3DS dominates , Vita in decline



Saying that the 3DS dominated in Japan last week is starting to become an obvious statement, however it happened once again for the period October 8 - October 14, with 3DS having five titles in the top ten. 

On top of the charts this week is Square's Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, selling 141,259 copies and knocking last week's number one, Resident Evil 6, down to second place. Resident Evil 6 still managed to shift 92.921 copies on PS3, taking total sales up to 727,854 on the PS3 alone.

On the hardware side, PS Vita is in serious decline and it seems something needs to be done quickly if it is to survive. It's such a shame as the system is absolutely fantastic, but it doesn't seem to be getting the support it needs to compete with Nintendo's 3DS, which itself managed to shift over 79,000 units.

Should anyone be surprised the Vita is doing poorly?

Not really, it's still early days for it.

No surprise for me about the poor showing for the Vita. The system itself is too expensive but the biggest problem is that the games are way too expensive. No way on earth would I pay the same for Vita games as PS3 games. Make the system sub £100 and the games no more than £10 and I might, just might, be interested!

I think you are expecting a bit much there with those prices, last time I paid ten pounds for a brand new retail game it was in the 80's.
