Vita sales rocket in Japan after price cut

It was hardly rocket science to figure this would happen, but a Sony exec claimed at the One Piece: Pirates event in Japan that sales of the console had quadrupled in the week since the price cut, and with many places sold out, it could have been even higher.

That means the Vita could have sold around 40-45,000 units this week, we'll find out later today when the Media Create figures are out. With Soul Sacrifice on-sale today, expect the trend to keep rising as Japan finally embraces the Vita.
