White Vita boosts Japanese sales

Publish date:

The launch of the Crystal White Vita has nearly doubled the handheld's weekly sales in Japan.

Enterbrain reports that Vita sales for the week ending July 1st reached 22,638 – a massive improvement over the 12,000-13,000 units shifted the week before, according to VG247.

However, software sales remain slow. There were only two Vita games in the Top 20 for the week: Persona 4: The Golden and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.

Meanwhile, 3DS continues to sell well with 65,000 sales generated in the same week, and five titles in the Top 20 - including the 2m-selling Pokmon Black & White 2.
