If those PSV numbers are accurate then WOW.
GrumpyOldGamer  +   1320d 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...
cpayne93  +   1320d ago
Yeah its great to see it coming up in sales.
Awesome_Gamer  +   1319d ago
A new GTA/COD could easily push Vita to number 1 in sales
kneon  +   1319d 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.
mewhy32  +   1319d 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.
Derekvinyard13  +   1320d 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-hung  +   1320d 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?!
Shagohad  +   1319d 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.
StraightPath  +   1320d ago
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.

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.
boybato  +   1320d ago
it would be nice though so all my stingy friends would buy it. lol
clearelite  +   1319d 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.
CommonSenseGamer  +   1319d ago
Dream on. Vita needs a price cut and if it does not get one for xmas then it will get left behind.

... 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?
TheLyonKing  +   1319d 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.
SpinalRemains138  +   1319d ago
Just like the ipad, right?

Whats that thing cost? 600 minimum?

Stop with the price cut. The Vita is 250.

Thats a bargain.

mushroomwig  +   1320d 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.
PoSTedUP  +   1320d 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.

A new IP caused this raise in Vita sales . How much will the sales increase when call of duty is released ? :)
thehusbo  +   1320d ago
Ps3 dominating the home consoles as usual, and vita is revitalised :) good job Sony.
cstyle  +   1320d ago
you call that
DarkHeroZX  +   1320d ago
Umm the ps3 sold about 30k more then the 360 and 70k more then wii. That's domination. Shoot the 360 is doing vita numbers lol
GribbleGrunger  +   1319d ago
in the context of every year for five years, yes, i'd say that the PS3 is dominating Europe over the 360. I don't want to mention world wide figures here, we'll save that for when you're ready

You do realize the 360 has been on Cruise Control for like 2 years already while MS has been gearing up for the 720 and the PS3 hasn't caught up in sales yet.

The PS3 should pass the 360 sometime in 2013!

Overall 360 owners buy more games which makes Publishers happy!!

if you take out the graveyard full of dead 360s, i am pretty sure ps3 is neck and neck with xbox.
cstyle  +   1319d ago
neck and neck...I doubt it. Even if that were true, what took them so long? Xbox is on its seventh year. Don't use the year advance excuse because PS3 has been out long enough to have surpassed them by now.....even with the xbox hardly selling next to anything in sony's homeland japan, they still lead sony.
DarkHeroZX  +   1319d ago
Dude America alone cancels out the ps3 lead in Japan. Plus the 360 did outsell the ps3 last year by about 800,000 units thanks to dumb Americans. Ps3 needs to out do the 360 this holiday season by good margin, atleast 900,000 million and the ps3 will take the lead.
Drake117  +   1319d ago
"dumb Americans"
"900,000 million"
uh what?
GribbleGrunger  +   1319d ago
i'll explain it to you, Darkhero: MS called those figures at the end of the year just after Christmas and 360 owners bought it, while PS3 owners waited for the real report which is the fiscal year report ... that's March if you didn't know. The PS3 outsold the 360 that year too, you just bought the old slight of hand trick. I certainly don't blame you, the company you support are experts at telling you one thing and giving you another... 'potential' don't you know

If a runner starts a race and is allowed to go an entire lap before their competition even starts to run, and then that competition records better laptimes without ever actually catching up to the early starter, who would you say won that race? PS3 reached 50 million sold MUCH faster than 360 did. Why is this so hard to understand???
DK286K   1319d ago | Spam
black911  +   1319d ago
I say this all the Time. If the 360 never had the RROD sales would be atrocious. Just about every 360 own bout an elite model then trade that in and bought a slim etc. More then 75% of PS3 like myself still have their original PS3.

what about my jtagged xbox? LOL

kidding aside, I also contributed to an xbox sale but having to replace it/have it fixed 1nce a year convinced me to go back to sony.

got my unit back then replaced though i sold it... that was after i kid and ask the 1800myxbox employeefor xbox's failurerate... i was surprised w/ his response but he tol me that all his fello gamers there has a ps3.

browngamer41  +   1320d ago
3DS sales seem back on track! Complete domination from a great handheld! I also like the uptick in Vita sales as it means that contrary to popular belief handheld gaming is not doomed although some morons would have us believe so..suck on that Pachter!
MasterCornholio  +   1319d ago
There, you had to say it didnt you? Tons of people are bashing the Vita and the 3DS but in reality we as gamers should be supporting them. Because if dedicated handheld gaming goes down the toilet the only devices left are smartphones.

And who honestly wants to play core games on an iPhone 4 with a ridiculously small screen, terrible controls and weak hardware (at the moment).?

Death to smartphone gaming long live the Vita and 3DS.


Its great to see Vita sales pick up and i am pretty sure that Little Big Planet, Assassins Creed, Soul Sacrifice and Call of Duty will help sell even more Vitas and Sony Smash Brothers and Sly 4 as long as they are good. My only wish is that the Vita does well enough to not warrant a price cut, that way those morons screaming for one will get severely owned.

Microsoft should just quit and move on to the next box. But damn great numbers for everyone. And it looks like vita is turning around quite a bit. A 56% increase is something to stick their chest out at. And damn PSP is still selling that much?
josephayal  +   1320d ago
THANKS SONY,ur exclusives made me feel so insane
PS-VITA and the XBOX 360 are very close , but dam the PS3 is unbeatable, Sony deserves a lot of credit for their software

Funny calling the ps3 unbeatable when its still in third place. Japan is the only reason the ps3 sells as much as it does. The 360 will get a massive sell boast during the holiday season just like it always does, especally this year with halo 4.
chrisarsenalsavart  +   1319d ago
dear cstyle,
if xbox was selling as well in sony,s homeland as sony does in microsoft one then your point would be valid.
And yes if ps3 came out a year before xbox i am pretty sure it would have been a different story.
My point is xbox only rules in north america.
Nuff said
boybato  +   1319d ago
lets not forget sh*tloads of xboxes sold due to the dreaded 3rl and e74.

damn MS even extended xbox's warranty to 3 years for those type of issues. Sadly friend of mine, who remains loyal w xbox had an issue w the the slims optical drive after 6 months... talk about quality...

What would PS3 sales be if the YLOD was as bad the RROD?

Its funny you'se are all bashing ps3 and xbox about sales etc... have you missed the wii if all you fu**ers actually looked the WII won nuff said.

P.S. I dont care bout fanboy wars go jump off a bridge and take your xbox with you ;-)

Psp outselling DS. Psv outsells Wii. Ps3 out sells 360. Well done Sony keep earning the money we need more good games. Not apps or Gimmicks.

All those who said that Gravity Rush wasn't a system seller
was horribly wrong. Gravity Rush system seller in Eu and NA
IRetrouk  +   1319d ago
Glad to see all doing so well, also gravity rush is one of the most original games I have a long time, cant wait for soul sacrifice, lbp racing, lbp, that Sony fighting game, plus a few others, then there's forza horizon, gears plus by then hopefully the Wii u has some games anounced that I actually want, all in all its gonna be a good 12 months ahead for all gamers
feeter  +   1319d ago
When looking at Vita and 3DS im looking for how many games pe r system people are buying... if the charts are correct(or if im reading them right)... 2,289,332 Vitas have been sold while 3,720,941 games have been sold (each owner is only buying 1.6 games (average) while 17,702,273 3DS have been sold while 40,008,274 games have been sold (2.25 games)... i would be soooo bored with only 1 or 2 games... each system has more then a handful of great games
SpinalRemains138  +   1319d ago
Ps3 outsells 360 once again and the Vita is picking up steam.

No surprise here at all. The better systems eventually sell. It takes the haters and the ignorant a while to see the devices and then realize that they're worth owning.

When you suck at advertising, it kind of has to be that way. The truth usually prevails.
