PlayStation Vita sales have hit an all time low in Japan. Sony's latest handheld has dropped behind the PSP and 3DS as it accrues sales of just 13,939.

At launch, the Vita shifted 324,859 units and went down from there, selling 72,479 in its second week and 42,648 in its third. The next week it managed to flog 42,915, before plummeting down to 18,361, then 15,219, 18,942 and 17,141. Meanwhile, the 3DS sits atop its throne with 75,018 sales, followed by the PS3 at 23,293 and PSP at 15,847.

Still, Gravity Rush was able to penetrate the top ten selling 43,462 copies to become the second best seller of the week, while Ragnarok Odyssey got to ninth place with 41,614.

So ... it's not all bad I guess?
