Interesting that the PS Vita is still making a pretty decent showing in new hardware sales (even despite a plentiful used supply here in Japan), selling over half as many as the 3DS over the last two weeks.. I wonder where Sony's currently standing on future support for that platform.

Even in the west, the Vita has seen more exclusive games than Xone and PS4 together. 99% of those games are jRPG that are back into the profitable list of games. They sell to a very specific target audience (I include myself), but this audience has grown big enough to allow some small companies (Idea Factory, Marvelous AQL...) to even open offices in Europe.
That is the effect in the west. Considering Japan has a healthier jRPG market (always had, as far as I know) this could explain it.
