Vita sales slides further in Japan

Is it time to ring the alarm bell yet on Vita sales in its home territory? Fair enough, its a quiet week all round, with no new game, but dipping to just below 6,000 sales on the new Media Create chart data is among the worst performances across the Vita's lifetime.

Blue Reflection is already out the chart on Vita and Musou All Stars is dropping fast, while the PS4 versions at least show some resistance. Nintendo's Switch continues to sell out wherever stocks are found, so things are looking slightly bleak on the Vita front.

Does everyone in Japan who wants one now own a Vita? Will future sales just be replacements? Is Sony's sudden interest way too little, too late. The good news is, it doesn't really matter for us, we have a long list of games over the next year, some will be cancelled sure, but the rest will make it and be enjoyed by the loyal Vita community.
