The sales figured for the PlayStation Vita in Japan just don’t seem to be going anywhere as of late. The Vita sold 5,806 units this sales week which is down 325 units sold from last sales weeks number of 6134 units sold. In contrast the 3DS sold 78,401 units and the PSP sold 15,107 units.
These numbers are certainly troubling but if I had to guess it would be due to the fact that not very much software has come out on the Vita as of yet. Hopefully the Vita doesn’t end up in a catch 22 situation where developers don’t want to make software for it due to its low sales and the sales don’t pick up due to the lack of software.
