Persona 4: The Golden makes PS Vita sales jump 150%

0

It's no secret that the PlayStation Vita has been flagging in Japan, hitting record lows on a disappointingly consistent basis. However, thanks to Persona 4: The Golden, sales of the Vita enjoyed a sharp rise in its homeland, selling half as well as its rival, the Nintendo 3DS. Hey, it's a start

The Golden became the Vita's first software chart-topper with 137,076 sales, selling double that of the previously best selling Vita game, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational

The 3DS is still the best selling hardware this week at 61,793, followed by the Vita's 34,459. The PS3 came in third after shifting 14,673 units, followed by the PSP at 9,740 and Wii at 5,963. The Xbox 360 sold LOL units. 

It's not exactly a stunning success, and it's being owed to a game originally released in 2008, but it's still a nice indicator that the system's ready to sell as soon as more good games turn up. These lengthy dry spells between hot titles really isn't what it needs, and hopefully Sony takes note.
