Luigi, Luffy Ride High On Japanese Sales Charts, Vita Steady (Media Create)

GR analyzes: "This week, its total sales numbers remained impressive, probably thanks to a number of games being released for it. They were ports — One Piece, Meruru, Dead or Alive 5, Pro Baseball Spirits — but at least it was something, and in a country where portables have taken over, handheld ports add significant selling power." (3DS, Industry, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2, PS Vita, PS3, PSP, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Not bad for nintendo & sony.. That price cut helped vita a lot considering they were only managing to sell around 8k untis monthly & now its around 40k.. 3DS is still on top but vita isnt too far behind em in monthly sales anymore.. I cant wait to see what happens when ppl see what vita does in combination with PS4.. If sony keeps pumping out games for vita as well as start making all PS4 games have vita funtionality, it will no doubt rise even further in monthly sales... Nintendo has the handheld community on lock down so i must give em credit where credit is due.. Now that wii u... smh

I've been playing Luigi's Mansion the last couple days and I am having a blast with it. Definitely a worthy successor and feels like a great fit for the 3ds.
