Its VCHartz - this numbers are based on guesstimates.

Some random dude pulls these numbers out of his arse.

Stop it already... we are not living in the past you know\!
miyamoto  +   792d ago
yeah who ever approves of these crap from vgchartz...?

xbox may just catch the wii sales in the U.S. Can't believe the vita isn't selling that well.
JBSleek  +   792d ago
It isn't hard to believe when the only competition to the Vita is $80 cheaper.
DivineAssault  +   792d ago
That & the demographics are very different.. Vita is tailored for more teens & adults.. I cant see many parents buying a kid a vita so it gets destroyed & $300 down the toilet..
rpd123  +   792d ago
That and the fact that Sony has literally no ad campaign for the Vita. My friends had never even heard of it until I got one and showed it to them (one of them is getting a Vita now because of it). If they let people know it was out there, there'd be more interest.

@Machioto

Nope I live in America. I've seen ads, but I have to actively seek them out. It's not like I'm watching TV and then there's a Vita commercial like there is for the 360 or PS3.
Hicken  +   792d ago
The Vita's competition is pretty much every other handheld; not just the 3DS, but the DS and PSP, as well.

And some crazy people want to put it in contention with smartphones and tablets, too.

The Vita's fighting against ignorance and misinformation more than against any competing product. And incorrect knowledge is a much harder adversary to defeat.

whats going on with the wii? its sold out online & the sales have a slight increase... I just sold one of mine yesterday.. Got a damn good deal on it too
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   792d ago
Nobody has ANY idea why the Wii is starting to sell again. Seriously. I can't find anyone who can explain it.
ZoyosJD  +   792d ago
Nintendo's master plan of not giving the WiiU a release date is working...JK...IDK, but it is a posibility.
yabhero  +   792d ago
FYI:
The 3DS overlap a lot in the 13-21 demographics... People think its just kids unde 10 who get a 3DS and people over 20 get a vita but in truth they are kinda selling to a lot of the same people
AWBrawler  +   792d ago
True I know people who always thought hanhelds weren't for them, adults mind you, but now they all own a 3DS and games like Resident Evil and DOA
ritsuka666  +   792d ago
Bad sales for VITA...
Xperia_ion  +   792d ago
Sony is horrible at advertising, show some hot girls playing it, anything!!! WTF Sony : /
Siren30  +   792d ago
Yeah its the lack of advertising instead of no games and $250 price tag and having to buy expensive memory cards seperate that is causing the vita to have poor sales
Xperia_ion  +   792d ago
Sarcasm is like a second language to me.
DarkHeroZX  +   791d ago
Well I disagree on the no games part. And you can get their memory cards far cheaper online. But advertising the vita is a most.

Blimey vita hasn't sold even a million in the us
