PlayStation Vita Sells Over 31k Units in Japan, Muramasa at 45k Week 1

The Wii U may have doubled its sales from the previous week to finish at just under 23k between March 25th and 31st, but it wasn’t nearly enough to take away second place from the PlayStation Vita, which ended up with 31,795 units sold. This does represent a nearly 10k drop week-over-week, but it’s still very good for the struggling handheld.

Looking at the other PlayStation systems, the PS3 had just over 19k sold, while the PSP, who saw the biggest software debut of the week with Fate/Extra CCC, was at 12,594.
