Due to a variety of reasons that included gamescom and the fact that there weren’t really any PlayStation games in the top 20, we’ve been absent in our reporting of the Japanese sales charts lately, but thanks to the PlayStation 3 selling 12,689 units, compared to the PlayStation Vita’s 11,507 (and PSP’s 5,735), now felt like the perfect time for a comeback.
