All hardware sales dive as Japan enters the dead month

As expected, hardware sales come crashing down in Japan in the latest Media Create figures, as we being the long hard winter toward Spring. Vita and PS4 sales halved, while 3DS and Wii U sales crashed by two thirds. However, there are plenty of good Vita games hitting Japan early in the year, so perhaps the Vita will be the least worst affected console across the winter.

There are no new games in the chart, but Gundam Breaker 2 maintains its place in the top 10, now over 111,000 sales. Atelier Aesha and Logy is out next week along with a few niche Vita titles.
