After a strong debut, PS Vita TV averages a mere 7,868 units according to the latest sales figures.
Media Create has released its hardware sales figures for the week of November 18th to 24th in Japan, and while the Nintendo 3DS XL managed to rise above the previous week’s sales, the PlayStation Vita TV outright collapsed this week after debuting the week prior.
The 3DS XL managed to sell 63,709 units this week, with previous week’s sales being 47,852 units. The PlayStation Vita managed 21,044 units, which is significantly down from the previous week’s 46,350 units while the Wii U managed to sell 21,002 consoles which is up from the previous week’s 15,906 units. Meanwhile, PlayStation Vita TV managed to sell a meager 7,868 units. Consider that the week prior, the platform sold 42,172 units on its debut and you’ll get an idea of how big a fall this is.
The Wii U has had its own ups and downs since launch, so we might see an increase in sales for the PS Vita TV following the release of exclusives over the years. As always, time will tell.
