Shortly after the Vita's release we wrote this story, this story, and this story, about how sales were disappointing for Sony's new handheld. With Persona 4 The Golden's Japanese release, however, the Vita's weekly sales have doubled.

Persona 4 The Golden was the best selling game across all consoles between June 11 and 17 at 137,076 units sold. It helped the Vita quite a bit, but the handheld is still trailing behind the Nintendo 3DS, which sold nearly twice as many systems during the same period of time.
