PlayStation Vita Exclusive Tops Japanese Software Sales, Watch Dogs Hacks Into Second

Sony's PlayStation Vita portable has done well both on hardware and software sales charts in this week's Media Create numbers, moving over 20,000 units as reported in yesterday's global sales stats.

That's thanks in no small part to newly released Freedom Wars, a four-player Monster Hunter-style action game, which sold over 180,000 units in its first week on store shelves. Watch Dogs on PlayStation 4 debuted well below that figure, at just over 60,000 units sold but Ubisoft is aided by another 30,000 units of the PlayStation 3 version sold through.
