Sony may be considering ways in which it can broadcast PS Vita TV overseas, but we reckon those plans may be shelved soon if the diminutive device doesn’t pick up the pace in its home territory. After a miserable first month on the market, the micro-console has now slumped to just 3,772 sales in Japan according to the latest Media Create report. That’s less than the PlayStation Portable, and a pretty embarrassing figure for the relatively novel release.

Fortunately, it wasn’t all bad news for the PlayStation brand as a whole this week. Despite a disappointing debut in the UK, simulation racer Gran Turismo 6 sped straight to the top of the sales charts with an impressive 204,784 units sold. It’s less than its predecessor launched with, but it shows that the title may have been adversely affected by the launch of the PlayStation 4 in the West. The game helped the platform holder’s current generation console to sell 24,085 units in total.

Meanwhile, despite the failings of PS Vita TV, the PlayStation Vita itself continued to hold strong, selling 25,594 units throughout the tracked period. Both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U finished above the portable, but it’s definitely refreshing to see the handheld stabilising around a somewhat healthy tally. It’ll be interesting to see how the manufacturer's next-gen platform performs when it arrives in February, as the Japanese market seems pretty unpredictable at the moment.

We’ve included the full list of movers and shakers in the space below. Are you satisfied with the Vita’s numbers of late? Is the floundering PS Vita TV a big misstep? How will the PS4 be received in the region? Do your best Michael Pachter impression in the comments section below.
