Japanese Charts, 26/11 - 2/12: Vita sales up as two titles arrive in top 10

Sony will be please that PS Vita sales have improved in this week's Japanese charts, although not by a lot. Thanks to the arrival of two new PS Vita titles in the top ten, the handheld gets a small boost, although as usual it's the 3DS and it's larger sibling which are the big winners.

Combining sales of both 3DS and 3DS XL sees around 167,408 units shifted in one week, which we are sure you will agree is very impressive. In fact the closest rival is PS3, which only managed a measly 29,809 in comparison.

Check out the software and hardware charts below.

Someone was saying the 3DS is actually starting to catch up to the PS3 in terms of overall sales. Quite surprising. And One Piece Musou 2 was announced for PS3/Vita for Q2 next year. Considering the sales of Musou 1 earlier this year it looks like the Vita's got a system seller in Japan. I'll be surprised if it doesn't outsell the 3DS that week Nice to see Phoenix Wright vs Layton at the top too tho

I think the Wii U will do just fine. Nintendo know how to adjust when they have to. Look at the huge price drop the 3DS got. (while Sony are sitting there complaining that they're selling at a loss so cannot drop it.) which turned around the sales. Japan the Wii U will suceed simply due to Monster Hunter being a launch. Also rumours of the new 'Shonen Jump Stars' (One Piece, Dragonball, Naruto, Toriko, HxH etc.) is gonna be on Wii U. Which would sell pretty well too.

Quite frankly if Shonen Jump Stars came out over here I think I would'nt be able to resisted the lure of the Wii U that i have so far

The Vita will see like hot cakes in Japan as soon as a new Monster Hunter is released.

Monster Hunter, One Piece and Dragon Quest. That's what they need to sell. All three are kinda like air there. But they need to announce a MH for the Vita. We know there's a 3DS and Wii U one next year around spring (saturday for Wii U in Japan) and Capcom already announced 4 to be exclusive to......I don't know. It was U or 3DS but cannot remember which. I THINK it was 3DS. So we could see a port of that coming there at the least. Dragon Quest.... that series seems to have went back to Nintendo. We know there's X, Monsters remake and 7 remake all coming for the Nintendo consoles. All the Vita needs is something to really take off in sales, then developers will go for it. And I think that title is gonna have to be One Piece. because if that doesn't shift the Vita units. Nothing will. (because if 4 IS on 3DS. And Vita gets a port. Why would they buy a Vita when they could have the 3DS version. Along with it's better backlog in Japan)
