Japanese Sony hardware sales dip as pre-orders for Hatsune and Persona head up

Most of Japan is on holiday for Golden Week, so sales did some funny things with huge ups and downs, but no new releases, so not much action. After last week's Vita and PSP leaps, both dipped a bit, which isn't great news.


3DS 91,868
PS3 23,478
PSP 20,033
Wii 15,789
Vita 10,583

Looking further ahead, and taking a look at Amazon Japan, both Hatsune Miku and Persona 4 Golden are both high in the sales charts, several months before their release, suggesting that the big names are doing a good job of stirring up some interest in the Vita.
