Another consistant week for the Vita with over 40,000 units shifted and nearly 25% market share.
This weeks Japanese sales are in and since this seems to be a regular feature for us now, I may as well keep reporting it.
As posted on 4 Gamer you can see that despite being outsold 2:1 by the 3DS (as it was last week) it managed to hit 41,073 units shifted, no doubt helped by the release of One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 which charted in 5th place overall with over 60,000 units (the PS3 version was second). This represents 24.6% of the market, with nearly 1 in 4 consoles sold being a Vita.
Elsewhere in the game charts we had Atelier Meruru 3 in tenth, Pro Baseball Spirits 2013 in eleventh, Soul Sacrifice still shifting units in 15th and Dead or Alive 5 plus hitting 17th.
With the Vita shifting around 200,000 units consistantly over 4 weeks, is this enough evidence to suggest a recovery? How much longer can Sony put off the price cut in the west? What do you think of this weeks sales?
