Nintendo 3DS sales strong in Japan, while PS Vita slips yet again

3DS and PS Vita sales in Japan (Nintendo, Sony)

It's safe to say the Nintendo 3DS is quickly making up for its less-than-ideal first few months, especially in the land of its birth. As for the PlayStation Vita, well…

Today, the Media Create hardware charts for December 26 through January 1 were released. The 3DS easily dominated the list, coming in at a hefty 197,952 units sold. To put that in better perspective, that's nearly more units sold last week than all the other competing platforms combined.

Things continued to be bleak for the PS Vita, which, after debuting at 324,859 units and falling to 72,479 units in its second week, fell to an unsavory 42,648 units in its third week. Adding insult to injury is the Vita's predecessor, the PSP, which outsold the system once again.

Here's the full chart from Media Create. The numbers in parentheses are the prior week's sales

  1. 3DS: 197,952 (482,200)
  2. PS3: 67,199 (75,943)
  3. PSP: 62,746 (101,121)
  4. PSV: 42,648 (72,479)
  5. Wii: 33,208 (91,176)
  6. DSi LL: 3,356 (8,470)
  7. X360: 2,453 (4,245)
  8. DSi: 2,418 (5,894)
  9. PS2: 1,659 (1,582)
  10. DS Lite: 28 (32)

Things aren't looking so bright for the Vita in Japan. What do you think? Is it likely the Vita will meet a similar reception when it ships abroad? Is a major price cut in the works ala 3DS? Feel free to speculate in the comment box below.
