Monster Hunter sends the Vita into hiding in Japan

Somewhere in Sony's Japan offices is a man who's job was to manage third-parties. His mission was to keep Capcom happy and working on the PSP and Vita. I have no idea what he's doing now, but in Japan I suspect it involves a broom and "where the sun don't shine." While any fool can have predicted MH domination, the numbers aren't as high as the PSP launch of HM3, but it sold an extra 200,000 3DS handhelds over last week.



In light of that, and the new Vita 2000 models coming out shortly, Vita sales are unsurprisingly down to just 6,000, its lowest of the year, and only 500 more than the PSP. But things should pick up soon as the Vita lives on with some well-rated decent new releases in the pipe.
