About Playstation Vita struggles in Japan, www.g4tv.com also reported that I’m sure that some of you will look at today’s news of yet another sales dip for Sony’s PlayStation Vita in Japan as a harbinger of doom for the young handheld, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
With titles like Uncharted: Golden Abyss and wipEout 2048 leading the PlayStation Vita launch window, it’s easy to see that the current line-up is more appealing to the West rather than Sony’s native territory of Japan. Weekly hardware sales figures put the Vita at number four on the Japanese charts with 18,361 sold, which leaves it trailer behind its predecessor, the PlayStation Portable, with 22,538 units sold. The figures come from Media Create, via Andriasang. Despite sales continuing to struggle in Japan, the PlayStation Vita is primed and ready for a successful Western launch on February 22nd.
Monster Hunter has been a major factor in the PSP’s success in Japan, and the franchise helped boost 3DS sales around the PlayStation Vita’s launch. It’s sad to think that almost an entire region can be won over with just one title or series, but it’s clear that the lack of a Monster Hunter game hasn’t done the PlayStation Vita any favors.
