It may not be setting the sales charts alight, but the PlayStation Vita is continuing to sell reasonably well in its native Japan. This week’s Media Create update has pegged the portable’s sales at 31,325 units, an increase of approximately 10,000 units over the previously tracked period. The platform was propelled in part by the release of Soul Sacrifice Delta, which topped the charts with 48,786 units.

Still, while Sony will be pleased to see its struggling handheld starting to settle, it may be a little more concerned by the current state of the PlayStation 4. After a reasonable start, the next-gen system slipped to just 35,294 units this week, and with only Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes on the horizon, we sense that it may dip lower yet.

Of course, this supports the suggestion that Japan may not be especially interested in playing home consoles anymore, which perhaps justifies the platform holder’s decision to launch the device in the West first. We’ve included the full list of best-sellers below. What do you make of the current gaming landscape in the East? Pretend to be Michael Pachter in the comments section.
