Vita sales waiting for the next big thing in Japan

Destiny makes a decent dent in the Japanese Media Create chart, behind the new near-million selling Smash Bros. That leaves little room for Vita games with the free-to-play Chain Chronicles still sneaking in 4,000 sales for the retail edition. Toukiden is still kicking around the top 10 and selling decent numbers, compared to many previous Vita here-today-gone-tomorrow games.

01./00. [3DS] Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (Nintendo) - 944.644 / NEW
02./00. [PS4] Destiny # (Sony Computer Entertainment) - 91.277 / NEW
03./00. [PS3] Destiny (Sony Computer Entertainment) - 49.503 / NEW
04./01. [3DS] Yo-kai Watch 2: Ganso / Honke (Level 5) - 47.065 / 2.469.211 (-26%)
05./00. [PS3] Naruto Shippuden: Narutimate Storm Revolution (Bandai Namco) - 40.180 / NEW
06./02. [3DS] Dragon Quest X Online (Square Enix) - 22.977 / 75.351 (-56%)
07./03. [PSV] Toukiden: The Age of Demons Extreme # (Koei Tecmo) - 15.338 / 121.320 (-42%)

13./00. [PSV] Chain Chronicle V (Sega) {2014.09.11} (¥4.298) - 4.178 / NEW 


Vita sales remain well above last year (over double the same week last year), at just over 13,000 but the format really needs some new hardware (beyond a pink model) or big games to land soon to generate strong end of year sales.
