Vita sales robust in Japan for a quiet week

After a couple of good weeks of Japanese sales, the Vita had the potential to come crashing back down to earth today, possibly due to lack of stock, or the lack of a stand out game this week. However, with plenty to look forward in the launch roster, including Pirate Warriors 2 next week, there's little reason to think the Vita is condemned to low sales again,

Its sales dropped by half down to a mere 36,000 which is still pretty impressive and enough for second place in the hardware chart. Soul Sacrifice sold another 29,000 copies but the big new release was No. 1 Sword Art Online, one of three new PSP titles.
