    Vita Sales Going Back Up in Japan

    So, a big game from Nintendo gets ported to Vita, and that game begins at #3 on the sales charts, while Vita sales go up. Yay.

    It's good to hear the Vita is selling better over at a place like Nintendo City

    Proves how popular the Tales series are in Japan, but still, the VITA is selling horribly. The PSP is almost even in sales, and the PS3 sold almost four thousand unites more.

    I seriously believe the psp was perfect for the japenese market, while the Vita is perfect for the western market. It should do better release west side.

    It also somewhat proves that the reason for the lack of sales was down to there being not many japanese orientated games on the market at the time of launch.

    I wonder how the Vita will do in the EU and US then...

    Well that is a good sign. I'm hoping to see steady improvements as the software starts hitting the shelves. Gravity Daze/Rush hits Feb. 9th in Japan; and with that nice review score I hope we see better numbers and a top 20 placing for the game!

    I assume it'll easily break the 100,000 sales in a few hours, but then again, it might not do well at first but later.

    Played little deviants on Vita, absolutely amazing machine. Once people try it, will sell like crazy. No doubt in my mind, Will be selling my 3ds shortly after.

    Sell it now, you can trade it in for an extra $25 at GameStop. Though I'm assuming you haven't already paid off your Vita, and that you live in the US...

    I traded my 3ds in the day before the price drop and got 177.00 credit for it. Got Catherine special edition, ps sharpshooter, ps move bundle. Not bad for something I barely used

    This is what they're offering:

    Source: GameStop Sales | PC Sales | GameStop | GameStop (scroll about halfway down)

    I dont know the current going rate for 3DS trades, but I bet it's pretty high. You can call and ask.

    Damn I should have waited to trade in my 3DS. Oh well, I really didn't enjoy that thing. Such a waste of money.

    I'm just gonna own both the 3DS and Vita, don't see the point in missing out on exclusives just because it'd be cheaper to get the Vita.

    Hm... a bonus $25, huh? I've been checking my game drawer lately, and most of the PSP games I have, I can purchase on the Store or have been re-released on PS3 with trophies... maybe I'll trade in my PSP and hope for the best that the other few games show up on the Store as well. Would be nice to get another $40 of credit or so. That's a whole 'nother Vita game.
