Celebration is in order for Sony as the PS Vita officially passed the 1 million mark for lifetime to date sales in Japan this past week.
Great news for the Vita
Congratulations to Sony for their astounding achievement. Lets hope that all of the great luck and fortune continues.. Rated E For Everyone
aw, that is so sweet of you, General K short & simple very nice to see you here
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?
Obviously a lot more than those who give a crap about the Vita.
XD We ARE talking about the same 10 people right? Aaaaaand, I have incurred the wrath of the geekiest of geeks this day. /gameover
Dreamcast sold 1m faster than Vita did.
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.
Agreed. Also can't wait for Ragnarok Odyssey, Soul Sacrifice, and Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified.
Ragnarok Odyssey has an official release for the 30th now. They just posted the date on their Facebook page.
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.
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?
Good news but a little too early to be celebrating. There are still some tough times ahead.
People keep forgetting that the 3DS wouldn't be selling if it wasn't for huge 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?
"pre-price drop".. yep.. 3DS sales started to pick up right after the announcement of a price drop was announced..
It's good to know that there are millions of people out there experiencing true portable handheld gaming.
If its so true then those numbers would be more impressive, wouldn't they?
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.
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.
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.
Congratulations! Here to another 1,000,000 sales! Hopefully this time it will be quicker.
