Two Vita games chart in Japan, sales up 3,000

With The Last of Us sat proudly on top of the latest Japanese charts, Compile Heart's Idol Neptune PP does some business for the Vita in at No. 5 with almost 30,000 sales while Koei's Winning Post 7 manages around 4,500. That effort, plus a couple of PSP games charting sees the Vita shift 13,400 this week, the only console moving in the right direction.

With the overall market still heading down is Japan settling in for the waiting game until PlayStation 4, or is this the bleak future for consoles (except the 3DS) in Japan. The PSP is now just 80,000 sales away from 20 million in Japan, which will be a decent achievement for the old stager.
