PS Vita Japanese Charts – 26th June 2016


Once again Japan is leading the way when it comes to showing the world that the PS Vita is far from dead as a games console as the latest hardware and software sales charts to come out of the country show. While the software charts are dominated, understandably, by the latest game in the ever-popular Harvest Moon series making its debut on the 3DS selling over 100,000 copies the figures from Famitsu show the PS Vita still managing to perform extremely well…

The figures are in for the week ending 26th June 2016 and despite the aforementioned Harvest Moon game grabbing the top spot in the games chart, the PS Vita held its own nabbing second place with Caligula by Furyu selling just short of 30,000 copies. Not wanting to be left out, the top ten was represented by the Vita in 5th and 9th place by Coven and Labyrinth of Refrain and Dragon Quest Heroes II: Futago no Ou to Yogen no Owari respectively. In fact, the Vita was only beaten by the 3DS when it came to the total number of games in the top ten!

On the hardware front, the PS Vita is still performing well, managing to keep its third place and achieving a comfortable 11,000 sales, well ahead of the Wii U. Sales of the PS3 are now in a continual decline and the PSTV is barely clinging to life now. As expected, it’s not even worth giving the XBox One a mention when it comes to the Japanese market.

So, onto the charts themselves for the week ending 26th June 2016, starting with software sales…
