Vita Surges In Japan Thanks To Hatsune Miku Project Diva F
The PlayStation Vita hasn't exactly been burning up the sales charts over the summer.
But the handheld had a very strong Gamescom showing and on top of which, the Japanese got a highly anticipated title they seem to love: Sega's Hatsune Miku Project Diva F.
And that game has helped to propel the Vita up the Japanese sales charts, as noted by Andriasang. Sony's portable saw a big surge in sales, moving 46,877 units in the week ending September 2, putting it well ahead of any other game system besides the Nintendo 3DS.
- Nintendo 3DS: 67,926 (64,921)
- PlayStation Vita: 46,877 (9,751)
- PlayStation 3: 12,846 (12,243)
- PlayStation Portable: 10,918 (10,676)
- Wii: 8,038 (8,476)
- Xbox 360: 525 (563)
- PlayStation 2: 411 (439)
- Nintendo DSi: 279 (311)
Hatsune Miku Project Diva F sold over 158,000 copies in its first week of availability and doubled the tally of the runner-up title, Devil Summoner Soul Hackers for the 3DS. And...dude...the 360 sold 525. Seriously. 525. That's just...comical.
