Vita sales up on Baseball and Heroes in Japan

Bandai and Komani provide PlayStation with a little multiplatform firepower this week, although if the Vita is Sony's success in Japan, why did the PS3 version of Pro Baseball outsell the Vita's by 30K? Super Hero Generation didn't do so well but the Vita came out on top in that battle on the Media Create chart.

01./01. [3DS] Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (Capcom)  - 172.348 / 1.945.850 (-47%)
02./00. [PS3] Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2014 (Konami)  - 81.981 / NEW
03./00. [PS3] The Evil Within (Bethesda) - 59.388 / NEW
04./00. [PS4] The Evil Within (Bethesda)  - 59.204 / NEW
05./00. [PSV] Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2014 (Konami) - 50.836 / NEW
...
09./00. [PSV] Super Hero Generation # (Bandai Namco Games) - 16.802 / NEW
10./00. [PS3] Super Hero Generation # (Bandai Namco Games) - 12.566 / NEW
11./04. [PSV] Chaos Ring III: Prequel Trilogy (Square Enix) - 6.967 / / 19.402 (-44%) 

...
20./11. [PSV] DanganRonpa: Another Episode (Spike Chunsoft) - 2.132 / 98.528 (-35%)


That activity gave Vita and PlayStation TV combined sales a little boost back to near-"normal" levels, but its hardly inspiring and the downward average trend continues. I guess buyers wait for the new Phantasy Star Nova models, which seem to be Sony's only real drive for sales, aside from the girl gamer push. 



If you want a chuckle (or more of a deathly cough), PlayStation TV (795) is now outselling the Xbox One (613) in Japan, ouch!
