Japanese Charts, March 18 - 24: Vita has legs


Sony will be pleased to see PS Vita sales jump up again this week following a small drop last week. The handheld system managed to shift 41,073 units, although was once again eclipsed by the 3DS which sold over 76,000 units.

In the software charts it was Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon which stole the show, selling a whopping 280,151 units, although One Piece wasn't far behind selling 274,625 units. In fact if you count the 60,315 units the game also sold on PS Vita then it was by far the weeks biggest success.

Check out the charts below.

Not bad for Vita. Was expecting a 10k drop, not a 10k increase... could manage to steady at a decent level yet, but probably not for a couple of months yet seeing as the release schedule slows down a lot for it through April and May in Japan.

I don't understand how 3DS can keep selling at those numbers, surely everyone has one by now... Or they keep breaking and having to buy new ones.

Not going to comment about the lack of a Wii U game in the chart Kevin?

Well... you need to have games actually coming out before they can chart.

Brilliant. Wii Vs Vita again with a bit of 3DS thrown in. I will check in again next month to see if this has got old yet.

No doubt the jump is due to One Piece. Which didn't sell as much as I expected overall. (considering Sony and Koei claimed it had over 400,000 pre-orders a few weeks back) BIG difference between the top 2 and the rest of the chart too lol

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
