Probably had something to do with the 40,000 or so Vita 2000 units they sold in Japan this October.

Yo can probably thank Dangan-Ronpa 1-2 Reload for that.

It was just because of the boost from the first week of the new model out. By the second week the number was slashed in half due to lack of new software. I imagine this week will continue the trend. While VGchartz is far from being a reliable source, the week ending in October 19th shows the PSV outsold WW even by the Wii U~.

Well as nice and dandy as that is, the Vita isn't competing with the 360.

 

The 3DS managed to sell over 400,000 units (thanks to Pokemon)

 

Also, look at software sales.

 

While yes, the Vita beat the 360 in terms of hardware, it only had 191,424 software sales (which is even below the Wii U). The 360 sold over 1.5 million.

As said above, 360 and Vita are not competitors.

Also, I wouldn't trust VGChartz as a reliable source, there are many reasons why they are not reputable and banned as a source in various websites.

And 3DS is outselling all of them on a weekly basis.

 

Edit:

The 3DS outsold the PS3, Xbox 360, and PS Vita combined last week... With 76k left over.
