Vita sees massive sales jump in Japan after price drop
Combined 3DS sales still lead the charts.
We have the latest Media Create Sales data from Japan and it seems the price cut has worked for the Vita. The price was cut at a Vita event where SCEJ president Hiroshi Kawano revealed the price drop.
The WiFI and 3G version of the system costs 19000 yen and it looks like the price drop has worked.
The Vita sold more than last week and such sales would be pleasing to Sony. It still has to sell consistently at this range to get game developers to develop for the system.
Sony hasn’t announced a price drop for the US and EU regions yet.
The system failed to top the chart for this week, and the combined 3DS sales are higher. You can check out the complete sales chart below.
3DS = 77.439
PSV = 62.543
PS3 = 25.725
PSP = 11.171
WIU = 10.021
WII = 1.383
360 = 486
