Isn't 4,842 a new low for the Vita?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 11:50:49 AM PST
For Media Create, it is. Famitsu tracks 5,368 Vitas but I only use MC numbers (which are usually more favorable to Sony.)

Pointing out the new low every few weeks got tiresome after a while. Like, four weeks after it launched.

Did the 3DS really just out sell the Vita 18.5 to 1? LOL.

Anybody remember when Flores, Gay, Oskar and Dougie said the 3DS was a flop and the end was nigh for Nintendo? Good times, good times.

Unless there is a price cut or new colors (November 15th) I don't expect Vita to do much for the rest of the year in Japan. It seems Sony is waiting to see what God Eater 2 and Soul Sacrifice do for the system.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 11:55:13 AM PST
If you combine both models of 3DS then it outdoor the Vita 23-1.

Nope, care to find that for me, I got $20 waiting for you if you do.

Edit: I am a 3DS owner.

Also notice how all those articles about the demise of Nintendo have quietly vanished? 90% of game sites were amazingly wrong while being so sure of themselves, shame nobody points it out to them.

wonder if there is a chance at strong Black Friday sales getting some Vitas into the hands of consumers ... here's to hoping. guess Halo 4 will get 1 XBox title onto the list ....

Updated graph showing first year hardware sales in Japan for a number of systems.

3DS shoots off the graph... lmao

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 12:03:07 PM PST
Well, Japan does have a holiday shopping season but nowhere as big as the US. FPS games are not as popular in Japan.

Yeah I noticed that. I still love how every single time Nintendo makes a new console people are quick to predict their downfall. You'd think after awhile people would get a new stick, especially after being wrong for the last 20 years.

Want to see the pain drop? Vita launched in December of last year in Japan and since then it has sold 1,025,692 systems.

The 3DS XLwas released...July 19 or somewhere around there? That model by itself has sold 883,984 systems so far.

the 3DS XL released Aug. 18th .... they're pretty popular. I far prefer it to my original. just in terms of screen size.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 12:14:54 PM PST
Oskar2525 says:
Yes, the 3DS XL is better in almost every way to the 3DS, the upgrade was a great move.

PS3 and 3DS are beast in Japan, must be the 3.

Ouch. So much for the SDF (Oskar, Flores, Dougie, Gay) predicting the 3DS as being Nintendo's downfall.

Still can't find anything? You must be busy with your "experiments." I am sure mommy will let you out of the closet soon enough.

LOL! The PS2 outsold the 360!

Posted on Nov 7, 2012 12:21:54 PM PST
Lucanus says:
The Wii had more games in the top 20 than the Vita... LMAO. I wonder if Oskar still thinks Persona 4 will turn the ship around.

I sometimes wonder if you will ever grow up, but I don't see that happening.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 12:23:50 PM PST
In the US and Canada. In Japan the XL released in July.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 12:23:57 PM PST
Hasn't the PS2 always outsold the 360 in Japan?
