But can someone please make some sense of these charts ?

I can't tell if the Vita is doing well or not.

These charts don't tell you, because it's essentially two days' worth of sales, as opposed to the past few months' worth of sales for everything else.

And I may be wrong, but I could swear I've seen 327,000 everywhere else for the Vita.

That is Japan Sales. For Japan Sales we have media create.

Also, I don't understand why we need to throw the "Vita" word a lot these days. It's like a lot of articles these days are inserting a sentence or two for the Sony handheld. Telling about its current sales. Oh well.

I don't see why we need VGChartz shitty, inaccurate rumors when we have actual, real data from Media Create when it comes to Japan.
