Vita continues to struggle as 3DS tops Japanese charts

3DS outsells all Sony platforms combined, Vita falls behind PSP

Sales of the PlayStation Vita in Japan fell again this week as it was once again overtaken by its predecessor, the PSP.

According to data from Media Create, published by Andriasang, the Vita took fourth place in the hardware chart with sales of 13,939 units - significantly down from the prior week's total of 17,141.

Second and third places were occupied by the PlayStation 3 and PSP respectively, but the 3DS sold more units than all of the Sony platforms combined: 67,558, slightly down from the previous week's total of 75,018.

Konami's new Suikoden game for PSP debuted in first place in the software chart with sales of 61,784. The critically admired Gravity Daze, a new release for PlayStation Vita, came in second, selling 43,462 units.
