PS4, PS Vita Still Going Strong In Japan

Sony hardware continued to dominate the hardware charts in Japan.  The PS4 remained in the top spot despite have a drop in sales over 50%.  The PS Vita come in a surprising second place, managing to outsell both the 3DS models.  This was mostly thanks to the release of Soul Sacrifice Delta, which debuted at the top of the software charts.

That isn’t to say that the 3DS did bad.  Both models sold well, and, if combined, would have outsold the PS Vita and very close to surpassing the PS4.  The Wii U didn’t fare so well.
