Sony’s first foray into the handheld market may have been replaced over a year ago, but that’s not stopped the PlayStation Portable from proving that it’s still a force to be reckoned with in this week’s Japanese sales charts. Namco Bandai’s anime adaptation Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment soared straight to the summit of the latest Media Create best-sellers list, moving over 138k units on the aging PSP.

Unfortunately, the PlayStation Vita’s temporary spell at the top of the hardware charts was promptly put to an end by the 3DS. Sales for the system took a nosedive, dropping from 63k units to 36k units. Meanwhile, the PS3’s total tally increased on the back of the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, which finished in second on the software leaderboard. Elsewhere, God of War: Ascension debuted in eighth with 19,744 units sold.

As always, we’ve included the full list of movers and shakers below. Are you satisfied with the Vita’s performance? Let us know in the comments section.
