    Significant spike in Japanese PS Vita sales following release of Toukiden

    Following the release of Toukiden, a single- and multi-player title set in a medieval Japan, PlayStation Vita sales in the region have more than doubled from 13,422 the week before to 31,271. Toukiden sold 122,794 units in its first week after launch, and has given Sony's handheld a fighting chance against Nintendo's 3DS.

    Still awesome though, Sony needs to throw more money at third party devs in Japan and less at Ubishit.

    Glad wasn't expecting a huge sales for Toukiden glad its doing better than i expected.I hope they do put more into japanese devs to get them into ps vita more. Yeah Eng devs are a waste of time and money unless they do cross play.

    Now if we can just get something good in the West that'll sell consoles. I hate to break it to people, but even if Killzone is a great game, its not a game that'll sell systems in record numbers.

    I was thinking.. "good for you Sony", and then I saw "and has given Sony's handheld a fighting chance against Nintendo's 3DS.", and performed a dramatic facepalm. The Vita doesn't have a chance against the 3ds, period.

    I fail to see why Vita would do bad in Japan compared to the 3DS. They did a price cut a few month and the sales jumped. Now they brought out a game which is popular in Japan, and the sales went up. If Vita was going to do good in any country, you'd have to figure its the mobile country of Japan. Both times that the sales jumped, showed that people in Japan are willing to buy the Vita, in the right situation.

    A (Good) COD, GTA, and open world game, such as Oblivion, Skyrim, or Fallout would move Vita consoles in North America and Europe, in my opinion.
    One breath in this moment. We'll stay till were chosen and though it all.
    We Rise and Fall
    With our eyes wide open. We'll fight till we're broken.
