Console sales in Japan continue to dwindle in latest Media Create figures

The latest Media Create figures shown a continuing slide across most formats including the Vita in Japan. There isn't a Vita game in the top 10, so nothing to help stabilize sales of 12,643 (inc., another 1,000ish Vita TVs), which continue to track last years numbers (compared to 9,700 in 2013).

PSP sales did rocket to 9,365 (up from 1,400) on the announcement of its retirement, as buyers stocked up on back-up consoles to keep their UMD collection viable. Only a couple of weeks until Freedom Wars, but will that spark many new hardware sales?
