If those PSV numbers are accurate then WOW.

GrumpyOldGamer2124d ago

Release of Persona 4 helped a lot, great sales numbers in japan for it. Japan is finally seeing some good PSV games, hope they keep um coming (here in the US as well)...

3DS is still having beast numbers. I am ready for the 3DS XL... The portable market is thriving. Numbers will continue to grow from here on out...

cpayne932124d ago

Yeah its great to see it coming up in sales.

Awesome_Gamer2124d ago

A new GTA/COD could easily push Vita to number 1 in sales

kneon2123d ago

And don't forget AC 3 Liberation, that could do really well. I'm actually more interested in Liberation than AC3 and I haven't even bought a Vita yet.

mewhy322123d ago

But what market was the jump in? If it was only in Japan then the overall impact will not be sustained, as it's a small market. I want it to take off in europe a the US. Those are the bulk of the whole market.

Derekvinyard132124d ago

is there really 151,526,220 DS's Sold?? i don't usually look at these charts cause there most likely wrong but half the news articles that come up on this site talk about how Nintendo is falling. 3Ds maybe isn't doing so well but that's a shitload of sales.

fei-hung2124d ago

If Gravity Rush and Persona 4 done this to VITA sales, what will Call of Duty and Phantasy Star Online 2 do to the Vita sales?

and once Capcom see the sales numbers for something like PSO2 (considering they are decent), how long will it be before the Vita gets its very own Monster Hunter?!

Shagohad2123d ago

I hope that with the Monster Hunter Unite sale on PSN (it's in the US for sure, I don't know about other regions though) a lot of Digital sales are made so that it's apparent to Sony that there is definitely a market in the US (and possibly other territories) for Monster Hunter outside of Japan.

Every monthly global chart I see the 3ds is just dominating Wow pure ownage.

More perverts on ps3 then xbox with lolipop chainsaw? Lol s/ but medicore game.

Denethor_II2124d ago

"More perverts on ps3 then xbox with lolipop chainsaw?"

Well they do say the PS3 appeals more to the adult gamer.

It looks like Gravity Rush & Persona 4 really helped the Vita in sales. One an absolutely original game & the other a remake of one of the best JRPGs ever made.

See all the Vita needs to be successful is to have the games not a desperate price cut. A price cut would be nice but not entirely necessary.

boybato2124d ago

it would be nice though so all my stingy friends would buy it. lol

clearelite2124d ago

If they saw enough good advertisements for it, they would find a way to buy it anyway, no? :]

Looking forward to getting a Vita and I'm glad to see strong sales, especially for the handhelds.

Proving a lot of presumptuous "journalists" wrong as usual.

Although these numbers might not be precise, There's a chance that the handheld market may be stronger than ever.

CommonSenseGamer2124d ago (Edited 2124d ago )

Dream on. Vita needs a price cut and if it does not get one for xmas then it will get left behind.

Hicken2124d ago

... so you're looking dead at a drastic change in the Vita's sales, brought on WITHOUT a price cut, and all you can say is that the Vita needs a price cut?

How desperate are you?

TheLyonKing2123d ago

For someone with the title commonSenseGamer you aren't showing much Common Sense. As you can see just one game has surged the vita upwards.

Common Sense would dictate that games are what drives the platform, yes a price cut would be good but then sony loses out on some needed profits.

SpinalRemains1382123d ago

Just like the ipad, right?

Whats that thing cost? 600 minimum?

Stop with the price cut. The Vita is 250.

Thats a bargain.

mushroomwig2124d ago

I don't work for Sony and I certainly don't have any stocks invested but that doesn't change the fact that I can't stop smiling after seeing how the Vita is bouncing back. I'm a gamer, obviously sales are important to me because the success of a product determines whether or not the games still get made.

PoSTedUP2124d ago (Edited 2124d ago )

sales are like the politics of gaming. u bet your ass i want my team to win and takeover cause they have the best product. i aint ashamed to admit that. i'm a gamer too. and gaming has obviously changed as we progressed intellectually.
