PlayStation Vita Sales Quadruple in Japan Post Price Cut
Posted by Sammy Barker
System primed for positive week overseas
We already know that the PlayStation Vita’s commercial performance has improved dramatically since the console’s recent price drop, but just how much has remained a bit of a mystery. Fortunately, speaking at a One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 presentation earlier today, SCEJ president Hiroshi Kawano has shined a little light on the matter, hinting that sales have quadrupled since the 28th February adjustment.
According to a report on Game Jouhou [via Gematsu], the executive teased that the resurging system has sold about four times the amount of units that it registered two weeks ago. Back then, the console sold about 11,000 units, so it’s not unreasonable to expect this week’s number to be in the region of 44,000 units. That would represent a marked improvement, and with Soul Sacrifice still to come, it could get even better.
We’ll need to wait until later in the week for the official figures, but things are certainly looking up at the moment. Let’s just hope that they stay that way.
