For the first time ever the Playstation Vita has managed to outsell the Nintendo 3DS in Japan. This past week the Vita sold 63,581 units, which was just ahead of the 3DS at 61,008. Sony will no doubt be happy to have gotten the edge over Nintendo, thanks to the recent Vita price cut and the release of Soul Sacrifice.
As for Nintendo's latest home console, The Wii U, sales continue to struggle in Japan. This past week the console moved 9,454 units, which put it ahead of the Wii and XBox 360 by a significant margin, but still majorly behind the PSP, PS3, 3DS and Vita.
