Vita selling out in japan!

Well, more good news for the Vita, as stores in Shinjuku are reporting sellouts of stock within an hour of opening their doors, as reported by InsideGames (Japanese). It seems the official price cut at major retailers is pushing large sales for the system already, especially the Sapphire Blue and Cosmic Red color versions, as well as the new Ice Silver.
Twitter trends have also seen "Vita" as well as today's released games "(Senran) Kagura" and "PSO2" skyrocket into the top 10. Store display events featuring playable demos of One Piece Pirate Warriors 2, Oboro Muramasa, Senran Kagura, and Soul Sacrifice were crowded with both players and curious onlookers. There hasn't been this much excitement over the system since it launched over a year ago.

No way Vita outsold 3DS or PS3

Chances are Japanese retailers only have a smaller amount of Vitas as opposed to other systems.

And if it don't? Haha, funny that you're not that confident to include that other handheld.

Most likely this, but awesome news nonetheless.

Agreed. I'm hoping sales go up to 20k a week

The PS3 is steady at sub-20k in Japan this season so I'd be very surprised if it didn't outsell the PS3 next week. Nothing is touching the 3DS though.
