Vita sales up ahead of Persona 4 Dancing All Night launch

Half way though they year, yet its Christmas for Japanese Vita owners (well, you know what I mean) as Persona 4 Dancing All Night releases tomorrow. And, next week the chart should light up with Vita titles, hopefully driving hardware sales.

This week, there's little Vita action with sales up just under 900 units. However, it has now passed the four million sales mark in Japan.

Minecraft continues to lurk in the Media Create top 10, now over 200,000 physical sales. The latest Legend of Heroes adventure and Shiren 5 are both heading down fast, topping out around a limp 25,000 sales.

But alongside Persona, Japan gets Chaos;Child, Tower of Desire, Freedom Wars in the best of range, plus a bunch of visual novel and love titles. All of which should help nudge hardware sales in to action.
