    Sony Japan president: PS Vita sales have increased four-fold



    Sony Computer Entertainment Japan president Hiroshi Kawano has said during a One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 presentation in Japan today that PlayStation Vita sales in the country have increased about four times the amount of units the platform was moving two weeks prior—before the system’s February 28 price drop.

    Two weeks ago, PS Vita was selling around 11,000 units in Japan. That could mean sales will be as high as 44,000 this week. But we can’t be sure which numbers Kawano is referring to. It’d be best to wait for Wednesday morning’s full sales breakdown.

    Thanks, Game Jouhou.

    It would be nice of Sony to follow up with a price cut elsewhere.

    Well thats surprising. The PS Vita is too different from the PSP that it cant live up to the legacy.

    Not to mention that price tag you could buy a used PS3 for that money.

    Isn't the Vita actually doing better in the West than in Japan? Probably why the cut was for Japan only. Won't be long before sales are back below 15K anyway.

    I think it was a recent IGN podcast where I heard them mention the price cut in Japan was to bring the cost of the unit IN LINE with the western market. Apparently Japan was being charged more for the device than the west was. If thats the case, don't expect a price cut here anytime soon.

    That's probably it.

    I think all they (Sony and publishers) really need to do is to bring out more games, especially localize some for the west like the PS Vita version of Phantasy Star Online 2.
