I doubt people in Japan are worrying about Vita sales. They are still trying to bounce back from the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster that crippled Japan.

Everyone who wanted a Vita got on the first few weeks, after that the usual market who picks a game console/handheld up isn't there since so many people are having a tough time in Japan still.
