It may lack the clarity of its predecessor’s gorgeous OLED screen, but the new PlayStation Vita appears to have done the business for Sony in its home territory. While many feared that it may be overshadowed by the release of Pokémon X and Y, the system still managed to move an impressive 60,166 units. That’s an enormous improvement over its dismal 3,538 units tally the week prior.

In fact, it was a stellar week all around for the Japanese games industry. Even ignoring the success of Nintendo’s flagship portable property, Grand Theft Auto V moved a gigantic 360,115 units on the PlayStation 3, while Tales of Symphonia Chronicles shifted a further 77,228 units. The strong software lineup pushed sales of Sony’s home console up ever so slightly, from 10,232 units to 12,395 units.

Elsewhere, the best selling Vita game was Dangan Ronpa 1.2 Reload, a re-release of Spike Chunsoft’s popular PlayStation Portable visual novels. Meanwhile, SEGA’s sports sim Sakatsuku Pro Soccer Club charted on both the PS3 and the platform holder’s primary handheld, moving 73,696 units and 33,898 units respectively.

We’ve included the full list of hardware and software sales below. It’s nice to see the Vita looking healthier, even if it did get utterly obliterated by the Nintendo 3DS yet again. Let’s hope that the system can maintain its momentum moving forwards – especially now that it’s available in six pretty colours.
