Latest PS Vita Japanese Hardware Sales – w/e 30th March 2014

News

The PS Vita is still continuing to perform well in Japanese stores as sales are still rising week after week with still no sign of a slowdown although after an initial rush, the PS4 has experienced a dip for a couple of weeks. The latest figures reported from Famitsu for the week ending 30th March 2014 still show the Vita in an incredibly strong position…

  1. Nintendo 3DS LL – 47,692
  2. PS Vita – 40,625
  3. PS4 – 24,138
  4. PS3 – 16,757
  5. Wii U – 13,073
  6. Nintendo 3DS  10,003
  7. PSP – 3,308
  8. PS VitaTV – 1,814
  9. Xbox360 – 187

However, some of these figures may be artificially distorted as the level of sales tax in Japan changed at the start of the financial year (1st April) from 5% to 8%. While this may not be a large increase to many, it is believed that this could have triggered an end-of-year boost in sales for some consoles before prices rose with the cheaper hardware benefitting from this increase.
