Media Create Sales: Vita comes crashing down, Pokemon dominates

Posted By | On 28th, Jun. 2012 Under News | Follow This Author @KartikMdgl


The Vita received a large sales boost last week in Japan due to the release of Persona 4 Golden, which ended up selling pretty well too. However, it didn’t manage to boost the Vita for long as sales have fallen back to around 10k ish. It was apparent that the Vita will not sustain the momentum unless they release something unique for it, which also is suited for the mass market.

Meanwhile, the 3DS received a modest bump but is still at the top. The star of this week is Pokemon Black & White 2, which sold 1.6 million units. It didn’t manage to bump the DS either, which sold 1500 units and is pretty much non-existent in Japan. Dragon Quest Monsters Terry’s Wonderland 3D  also received a huge drop this week.

Rest of the figures are posted below so check them out.
