Vita sales over 5K in Japan

Yes, its small change and still well down on last year, but the Vita continues to tick upward in sales in Japan. That's according to the latest Media Create data where it sold 5.017 last week. The longer it stays around this level, the longer Sony will have to make the damn console and developers will keep popping out the usual fare. And perhaps taking on a few more risks or bringing over western indie imports to see what sticks.

On the software side, Project Tristars sneaks in at No. 16 with 4,300 sales but mobile port Haruka Ultimate does even better, in at No. 10 with 8,800 sales.
