PS Vita Sales Drop in Japan, Lags Behind PSP

PS Vita

Japanese hardware sales charts have reported abysmal numbers for Vita sales, falling behind the nearly eight year old PSP. Selling just under 12k models, the Vita fell behind the PSP, which sold 13k. The 3DS remained atop the charts, followed by the PlayStation 3.

As the slew of games for the Vita starts to slow down, sales may drop even more, especially now that rumor is that Vita developers are jumping ship in favor of the Wii U. If Sony doesn’t react fast, will the Vita go the way of its predecessor? See the charts below.
