It’s been over a month since the PlayStation Vita’s price was slashed in Japan, but the system’s still hanging on pretty well. While this week’s Media Create update shows a 10k decline for the console, it still managed to shift a respectable 31,795 units. Let hope that it can continue to maintain a similar tally moving forward

The machine was propelled by Muramasa Rebirth, the handheld port of Vanillaware’s popular Nintendo Wii side-scroller, which sold an impressive 45,660 units. The re-release debuted in fifth on the software charts, putting it ahead of the Wii U version of Dragon Quest X. We appreciate that the latter’s an MMO, but that’s still a pretty impressive result.

Elsewhere, it was a pretty lean week for both the PS3 and PSP, with One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 and Pro Yakyuu Spirits continuing to linger on the software charts. Sony’s flagship home console sold 19,069 units, while the PSP recorded a further 12,594 units. As always, we’ve included the full list of movers and shakers in the space below.
