The red and blue Vitas were released last week and along with Assassin's Creed III: Liberation helped boost the Vita's sales to over 13,000. That game sold around 24,000 copies. I believe there was also a black Vita/32GB memory card bundle released last week while the 3DS got a Mario 3D Land bundle. The 3DS accounted for 77.7% of all hardware sales in Japan last week. Animal Crossing still holding strong with 240,000 copies sold followed by Assassin's Creed III on PS3 with 72,000 copies. The PS3 dominates the Top 20 Games chart with 8 titles followed by 7 for the 3DS.

3DS OG- 51,441 (52,425) (96,219)

I know I'll end up getting that white vita with the AssLib bundle, but I kind of wish I was getting some other color now (assuming other colors will eventually make it to the US).

Sony was good about that with PSPs in North America but not the PS3s. We never got the red or blue PS3s, the Final Fantasy PS3, the gold & pearl PS3, etc. I'd love some LE Vitas over here.

Almost 200k for the 3DS for the second week in a row. I still maintain between November and December the 3DS will sell worldwide 3+ million. Impressive stuff. Nice to see the Vita double it's sales to over 10k. :)

In all fairness, the Vita more than tripled its sales. I believe the 3DS is about 400,000 sales away from overtaking the PS3's lifetime to date sales in Japan.

Same here. If they do release some LE Vitas over here that would be an instant buy for me.
