Two Vita games in the Japanese top 10, Ys and EDF3

While not selling huge numbers, the Vita got two new entries in the top 10 this week. With Ys Celceta and Earth Defense Force 3 Portable doing the business. Note that EDF3 sold 17K+ as it is available in a double pack and on its own, interesting to see the double pack sold more, highlighting how used the Japanese are to social gaming.

On the hardware front, the Vita sold 14,500 which isn't bad, but still way below what it needs to be doing. The venerable PSP sold a happy 23,000 thanks to the new Gundam game going in at No. 1 with Sony promising new bundles for Japanese gamers.
