Sales had rocketed the previous week, thanks in no small part to the Vita price cut introduced on February 28, although 3DS still came out on top by 15,000 units.

But last week, helped by exclusive new releases including Soul Sacrifice, Sony's handheld outsold Nintendo's by 2,500, units, according to Media Create data published on NeoGAF.

Sony-published Soul Sacrifice topped the software chart, with combined sales of the standard and double pack of the new game from former Capcom designer and Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune helping the title narrowly outsell Sega's Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f for PS3, which placed first on an individual SKU basis.

Elsewhere on the software chart, a Vita remake of Tales of Hearts R debuted at No.5, while the PS3 versions of Far Cry 3 and Crysis 3 entered at No.7 and No.16 respectively.
