Over 320,000 PS Vitas Sold at Japanese Launch

Over 320,000 PS Vitas Sold at Japanese Launch

The numbers are in from the Playstation Vita's big debut in Japan and it looks like the platform had a solid first week, sales-wise. According to Famitsu321,407 Vitas were sold during the platform's "launch week": For the record, the Vita's "launch week" was actually a two-day period, December 17th and 18th.

That number falls just short of the Nintendo 3DS, which sold approximately 371,000 consoles at launch in Japan. Still, getting 300,000+ new consoles out there is no slouch and, more importantly, the console's sales are a dramatic improvement over the launch of Sony's last mobile console, the PSP, which only sold 166,704 units during its opening week in 2004.
