Vita sales dive ahead of its biggest week of the year

So, the whole selling to girls idea collapses pretty quickly as sales of Vita and Vita TV fall by 50% in a week, with no major releases. Guess those pink consoles and stack of romance games will be sticking around on shelves for some time to come.

However, there's hope yet as Phantasy Star Nova, and limited edition Vita and Vita TV go on-sale this week. That's alongside Fate Hollow Ataraxia and Great Odeo Blacksmith, all of which should provide a decent boost to sales. With the Vita only 25,000 sales ahead of last year, it will need stellar sales for the rest of the year to stay ahead of the trend.
