It was an up week for the PlayStation Vita, with the system rising about 4,500 units to 22,394, and Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment (coming to North America this year) was the #1 selling game of the week at 145,029. The PS Vita still lost to the 3DS in terms of hardware though, with Nintendo’s handheld combining to sell just shy of 34,000 units.

Elsewhere, the PS4 dropped to 12,712, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma on PS Vita only debuted to 10,700 in sales, and If You Thought It Was Harem Paradise It Was Yandere Hell on PS3 from NIS moved just 4,100 copies.
