Japan: Vita trumps the 3DS in this week’s hardware sales

The tax rate is really hitting hard in Japan. Not only in videogames, but as well as other items used everyday as a human being. It can be seen with the consoles and software, this has given a slump to this particular area. Surpsingly, this turn of events has managed to get the Playstation Vita to take the top spot in hardware this week by a very slim amount. Wii U sales have sunken to an unbearable 5K, with the Playstation 3 outselling it by more than 2,000 units. Here’s the complete hardware sales in Japan for the week of 4/7/14 – 4/13/14:

 

PlayStation Vita – 24,078 (25,017)
3DS LL – 17,291 (22,947)
PlayStation 4 – 13,034 (13,401)
PlayStation 3 – 7,305 (10,871)

PSP – 2,027 (2,892)

And now for software, Mario Party: Island Tour had been the best selling title in Japan for the previous 2 weeks. A new 3DS title called Crayon Shin-chan: Arashi wo Yobu Kasukabe Eiga Stars! debuted at #5. Pokemon X and Y is still selling to consumers, placing at #15.
