Japan: PS Vita finally on top

graph

380% Increase in sales this week

 

After months of being bested by its predecessor and Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita has finally topped the Japanese hardware charts thanks to the arrival of SEGA’s Hatsune Miku Project Diva f.

Sony’s high-powered pocket brick sold just north of 50,000 units, beating out the 3DS LL and its standard cousin, plus of course PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable. That's a rise of 380%. 

In terms of software, SEGA’s rhythm title moved a whopping 159,592 units on its debut, with its nearest competitor, Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers for 3DS, shifting 69,365 units. 

This marks a significant milestone for PS Vita, which has traditionally struggled to maintain momentum since launching in Japan last December.
