Vita sales tick down as Japan prepares for Golden Week

Twas the week before Golden Week and all across Japan not a mouse was stirring, or buying consoles or video games. Vita hardware sales tick down another 1,000 and there are no new entries, with Minecraft sticking around in the top 10, Skullgirls didn't make the Top 20.

Next week sees the start of Golden Week in Japan, but that hasn't help sales much in recent years. Bullet Girls 2, Phantasy Star Online 2 Episode 4: Deluxe and One Piece Burning Blood are out this week in Japan, which might give the Vita a little nudge. However, few games seem to be able to do much to buck the spring slump.
