Japanese Charts, Oct 28 - Nov 4: Vita continues its decline



This week's Japanese charts are in and once again things are looking depressing for the PlayStation Vita. Sony's handheld has now dropped to under 5,000 units sold, although this could be due to the fact that there are no actual games being released for the system.

Thankfully a few new colours are coming out in a few weeks, so who knows, maybe that will spark the system to life.

On the bright side for Sony, the PS3 took over the top three in the software charts this week, with Tales of Xillia 2, Okami HD and Yakuza 1 & 2 HD riding high. The PSP even had a presence in the top five, thanks to World Soccer Winning Eleven for PSP, who knows, maybe those PSP owners will eventually move over to Vita once Sony and other developers have finished giving love to the Vita.

Elsewhere Nintendo had a great week, with 3DS getting a huge boost to 93,989 units sold. Now that's how it's done Sony.

Here's the charts.

On a plus side, it's still doing better than the 360 over there!

You'll need a supernova to spark the vita into life at the moment. Well, either that or price drops for games, memory cards and the vita its self. When is Yakuza HD hitting European shores?

Just an after thought to all this Vita bashing, did the PSP not start off really badly aswell? Overpriced, lack of games, ring a bell? I'm sure as we see more games being released price cuts and bundles will come along. As well as the upcoming new colours, with people still buy in to, especially in Japan. I'm sure the Vita will pick up eventually. I hope.

Strange to see the second entry is a HD version of a PS2 game. XBox 360 doing worse than the PS2! (I wonder can you still buy new PS2's)

Another bad week for the Vita it seems. Wonder why there was a jump in 3DS sales this week. Maybe preparation for Animal Crossing 3DS?

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
