The slide continues for Vita sales in Japan

Japanese gamers bow before an influx of Winning 11 and F1 games this week, leaving no room for a new Vita title. Only Minecraft is left to represent the handheld, selling another 3,160 copies to pull it clear of 1.2 million boxed sales.

The Vita itself sees another tick down to 3,847 units according to Media Create sales data. That trend of losing 50-80 sales a week (excluding a Christmas spike) would see the Vita hit zero in around another year, approaching its seventh birthday. And, since Sony has shown no sign of a successor device, I guess production would end next summer. Snap them up while you can folks!
