The PlayStation Vita will launch in key Western markets in a little over a month and so far the high-tech handheld has had a rough start in Japan. Sony announced at CES that it had sold 500,000 units since its December 17 launch, but over 324,000 of those were sold in the first week.
However, Japan has always had a notoriously different market than the West when it comes to game hardware and software. Is there any reason to believe that the present slow sales of the Vita in the East hint at a future sales disaster in the West?
EEDAR's Jesse Divnich doesn't think so.
