Vita sales drop to new weekly low in Japan

Weekly Japanese Vita sales dipped below 10,000 units for the first time in the week ending April 8.

Sales declined from 12,105 units the previous week to 8,931, a poor showing reflected in the top 20 software sales chart, which features no Vita entries.

3DS remained the top-selling system, moving 72,115 units, down 50,000 week-over-week, while PS3 and PSP held second and third places, shifting 19,370 units and 14,804 respectively.

On the software front, the latest PSP Super Robot Wars debuted atop the all formats chart with 265,439 sales, according to Media Create data passed on by Andriasang.

The week’s second highest entry was Kinect Star Wars, which sold 6,010 copies to chart at number 12, helping weekly Xbox 360 hardware sales almost treble to 3,764 units.
