Amazing hardware, beautiful games, but stupid decisions. Every Vita should come with a memory stick and bundled game wouldn't hurt, I remember being a child and my father bought me a PS2 bundled with Gran Turismo 3, it was epic.

I agree but I also think sony need to get there in house developers to work on the online side of there games too. MNR, UCGA are 2 of the best games on the PSV but don't have online MP. I think if sony drop the PSV price before xmas and get games like LBP LBP Karting ect right and push them like Nintendo push there games the sales of the PSV will pickup.

From neogaf

1.9m PS3 - 600k PS2 last Q. Overall rose 300k this Q so 700k PS2 and 2.1m PS3 seems like a good range.

Ps3- 2.1 million units
Ps2-700k units

They didn't break down the Vita/PSP numbers yet.

Edit: For comparison's sake, the 360 sold 1.1 million for their quarter and had a lost of $229 million in their gaming division.

Ps3 sold 2.1 million (according to neogaf) for the quarter and had a lost of $45 million in their gaming division. Seems the Vita might've caused the lost.

I never spoke about the PS3 sales I was talking about PSV and everyone knows its not selling very well. But Like I said im sure Sony can turn it around.

I do agree with you about each Vita should come with a memory card.

I remember coming home, opening the Vita, and trying to play a game but then found out you need to buy a memory card so yea.

InTheLab1877d ago

I would have been pissed but come on dude. You really didn't know you you needed memory and you're on a gaming website?

ShoryukenII1877d ago

Same thing happened to me. I kind of new but I was hoping that Golden Abyss would let me play without saving. I was wrong...

WeskerChildReborned1877d ago

@InTheLab, I didn't read up on any PS Vita articles cause i wasn't really interested at the time.

No good games that say BUY ME for the PS vita yet. Fanboys were gonna buy the handheld regardless, so they don't count. I'm waiting for the slim/price drop.

MasterCornholio1877d ago (Edited 1877d ago )

So sales from fanboys who bought a Vita don't count?

There is one: Gravity Daze. But that is the only one at the moment. Since I never had a PSP, I have a ton of games to catch up on. :)

Ok Sony, do your spin saying these numbers are within expectations. Honestly, they need to start marketing the Vita properly, drop the price and include a memory card. Sure Vita owners will say rubbish but if nothing changes the Vita is simply going to die a slow death.

You are beating a dead Horse, this is Sony's way of doing it. Look at the PS3 and the PSP, steady sales all the way.

If you're hoping for something amazing just around the corner, you are gonna be hugely disappointed.

Why are you in this thread twice?

100% agreement, With Sony having to distribut, support and manage 5 gaming platforms for their playstation Biz, they Have alot to do, its never about front loading the sales, there is no way they really can do that, when you have 5 platforms you only have so much developer support to go at anyone time.

Sony UK have at least been honest about it... "We would love it to be selling more and we intend to make it sell more." - http://psp2roundup.blogspot...
