PS Vita sales quadruple after Japanese price cut

Japanese PlayStation Vita sales have quadrupled since Sony Computer Entertainment Japan slashed its prices. Gematsu reports SCEJ president Hiroshi Kawano gave the figure in a presentation on One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 yesterday.

Kawano said sales increased about four times over Vita's performance two weeks ago. Japanese sales figures from that period total around 11,000 a week, Gematsu said, so that could mean as many as 44,000 a week after the price cut.

Sony has not announced any price cuts for regions outside of Japan. Here's why we think the electronics giant should.
