Japan: PS Vita sales take another tumble

The latest Japanese hardware data has confirmed that sales of Sony’s PlayStation Vita have again slipped below those of its predecessor, the PlayStation Portable.

Despite receiving a much-needed boost in the past few weeks thanks to the release of games such as Persona 4: The Golden, Sony’s new handheld has suffered a slight decline in weekly sales as the wave of killer software begins to recede.

PS Vita moved just under 12k, while PSP put in a solid performance despite being nearly eight years old, moving just over 13k units. As per usual, 3DS took the number one spot followed by PlayStation 3.

Check out the full hardware and software data below (via NeoGAF).
