PS Vita sells 72,479 units in second Japanese week photo



The PlayStation Vita had a somewhat decent start when it launched in Japan last week, but if Media Create was disappointed with the launch, it must be depressed by week two's figures. Sony's latest handheld shifted 72,479 units in the week following launch, placing it behind the 3DS, PSP, Wii and PlayStation 3. 

The 3DS (which nobody at Dtoid ever said was "doomed" despite assertions to the contrary) sold a solid 482,200 units, while the PSP flogged a cool 101,121. 

On the software side, Mario Kart 7 was a holiday winner with 260,836 sales, followed by Musou Orochi 2 (Warriors Orochi 3 in the West) at 200,526 and Super Mario 3D Land at 174,566. Not a single PS Vita game made it into the top ten software chart (Edit: Make that top twenty!). 

Not a very pleasant start for the system at all. But hey, there's always a chance of dropping the price six months from now. That works pretty well!
