The release of God Eater 2: Rage Burst helps put the Vita on top in Japan.
Though the New Nintendo 3DS XL – and the handheld in general since its introduction – has been selling well in Japan, the PlayStation Vita managed to top the hardware charts in the past week in Japan according to the latest sales data from Media Create. The Vita sold 35,203 units up from the prior week’s 10,901 units followed by the PS4 with 24,737 units sold.
The top-selling title was God Eater 2: Rage Burst on the Vita which managed to sell 234,180 units. The New 3DS XL still had a decent week with 23,466 units sold though this is down significantly from the prior week which saw 41,821 units sold with the debut of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D (which has since moved down to second place in the charts with 71,181 units the past week and 302,246 units over its lifetime).
Meanwhile, The Order: 1886 saw a decent debut in Japan on the PS4 with 25,023 units sold. What are your thoughts on the PS Vita’s success though? Let us know in the comments.
