Nintendo 3DS took just 13 weeks

Ps vita took 42 weeks..

I am just saying ok?

Vita is definitely under performing but a millions sales is still an achievement. However, Sony takes the hit or profit from h/w, I'm more concerned about software sales.

Who gives a crap about the 3DS?
CommonSenseGamer  +   807d ago
Obviously a lot more than those who give a crap about the Vita.

We ARE talking about the same 10 people right?

Aaaaaand, I have incurred the wrath of the geekiest of geeks this day.

Dreamcast sold 1m faster than Vita did.
iamnsuperman  +   807d ago
and people forget the Dreamcast sold well initially. It then didn't do so well after that.

its a great device (best hand held out there) and i wish it the best. waiting for assassins creed liberation to come soon.
Chapulin  +   807d ago
Agreed. Also can't wait for Ragnarok Odyssey, Soul Sacrifice, and Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified.
Godchild1020  +   807d ago
Ragnarok Odyssey has an official release for the 30th now. They just posted the date on their Facebook page.
LiViNgLeGaCY  +   807d ago
I'm so happy it's finally official. I've been waiting for Ragnorok Odyssey for a very long time. :)

Seriously, it's going to be amazing.
Skate-AK  +   807d ago
Me too. I have mine paid off and am going to pick up the bundle on the 30th.

That price drop did wonders for the 3ds.

Good news!

How is it around December in JP, do consoles and games get a boost as in EU and NA?
Belking  +   807d ago
Good news but a little too early to be celebrating. There are still some tough times ahead.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   807d ago
People keep forgetting that the 3DS wouldn't be selling if it wasn't for huge price drop.
Gr81  +   807d ago
@ Kobe, Pre-Price drop
3DS was still selling boatloads more than Vita is now..And many were calling 3DS a flop...

Anyway, price drop helped but software is what caused sustaining sales..in Japan of course. Elsewhere 3DS hasn't caught on like its predecessor.

Vita is a flop. Lets call a spade a spade here. If you are excited about the Vita and its software offerings, good for you, but this is a handheld in more trouble than the gamegear or Atari lynx.

They said the same thing about the PSP too. Wonder where those people are now?
LeBronista  +   806d ago
"pre-price drop".. yep.. 3DS sales started to pick up right after the announcement of a price drop was announced..
RubyToTheMax  +   807d ago
It's good to know that there are millions of people out there experiencing true portable handheld gaming.
Belking  +   807d ago
If its so true then those numbers would be more impressive, wouldn't they?
RubyToTheMax  +   807d ago
It's not a matter of numbers, but the product. The PSVita is like no other gaming handheld out on this planet. That's what made me preorder this beast in the first place.

But the combination of a crappy marketing team at Sony, and then the public so blind to realize how the great the PSVita is affects the numbers, obviously.

The product is perfect, you gotta give Sony credit for that.

*clap clap clap.
Gordon_Shumway  +   807d ago
Launched in December and just now hitting 1 million? I don't care if you're a Sony, Nintendo, or Microsoft fanboy, that's horrible.
hkgamer  +   807d ago
its great news and sad news at the same time. 1 mil is an achievement, but the time it has taken is just terible. maybe when the next batch of games to be released will boost the sales.
Cam977  +   805d ago
Congratulations! Here to another 1,000,000 sales! Hopefully this time it will be quicker.
