So If I see this correctly, the Vita has sold more on 2013 already than on 2012?
Im confused at this chart.

Haha1232152d ago

what Im confused about is that the psp still outsold it

Godchild10202152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

The Vita was only out in Japan this time last year. That's why it looks like it sold more YTD.

@haha123, The PSP is cheaper, way cheaper and has a lot of support in Japan and other areas still.

BanBrother2152d ago

Plus, all the rumours about the incoming Vita Monster Hunter made me replace my broken PSP so I could play Monster Hunter again.
THAT is why it sold more :-)

But seriously, PSP's are cheap as s*** now. I got one for $60 brand new, and have seen them go for $50. When I first got one, they were $400 lol. PSP isn't really dated either as far as handhelds go. Should buy Monster Hunter for it, still kicks a$$!!

Go Sony!!!! 3 cheers for Sony!! Hip hip horray! Hip hip horray! Hip hip horray!! XD

Suck on it haters!

Calls out immaturity; Yet ignores Senõr Poop_On_Vita. Priceless.

PS4isKing_822152d ago

I'm actually 30. See the 82 refers to my birth year lol

thehusbo2152d ago

Ps3 bossing the home console sales as per usual.

xursz2152d ago

I get the feeling ps3 will continue largely outselling the WiiU long after next gen is in full swing.

WiiU needs a price drop to stay competitive!

EddieNX 2152d ago

Nope it definitely won't. As soon as good hardware comes you will eat those words.

The wiiu is 1.5 Months old globaly. The ps3 is 7. So it's cheaper and got more games. But it's going to stop selling by the end of 2013. Stop selling as much anyway. By then the wiiu will be getting into its stride and increasing and increasing.

Ezz20132152d ago


"But it's going to stop selling by the end of 2013."

i stopped reading right there comment is an epic fail in every possible way

HammadTheBeast2152d ago


Sad to say, but there's more excitement for PS3 and PS4 (rumored name) than the Wii U.

sarshelyam2152d ago


What ridiculous logic you adopt. The PS3 will only become a more viable platform choice for entry-level families looking for something cheap, with a library of content available for it at bargain prices.

The PS3 will only pickup steam when the new hardware generation hits. Not everyone can afford the latest & greatest, which is a bit of a disservice to the PS3 considering how many great titles are available exclusively on the platform.

Ju2152d ago

WiiU is dead. It backfired for Nintendo. They wanted to be out first with a yet again low end machine. Feature wise it can match the PS360; and that's not enough with a $100 higher price point.

And comes fall it will be out matched by the new generation of PS and Xbox. If Sony wanted to play a price card; they can simply sell a low cost PS3 model (no HDD) by end of 2013 below $200 and done. This is what the WiiU will have to compete with.

They won't do it to not cannibalize PS4 sales. But the WiiU would need to be cheaper than that to make a dent.

This can't be correct. We know that there was a huge deal about the PS3 surpassing the Xbox in total sales. Regardless of their estimates this month, VG Chartz still shows the Xbox up by over 1.6 million on lifetime sales.

According to VG Chartz:
PS3 - 72,223,800
XBox - 73,844,354

Actual, documented figures from Sony and Microsoft:
PS3 - 70.2 million (Source - Sony)
Xbox - 70.0 million (Source - Microsoft)

Bathyj2152d ago

vg always has ps3 about 2m behind no matter how much they outsell them every year

2152d ago
IRetrouk2152d ago

@poop, i believe sony is still the only console maker in history to have everyone of their home console sell over 70 mill

BlaqMagiq242152d ago

@Poop on Vita

The fact you have to make multiple accounts to troll on here like a sad little coward is laughable XD

iamnsuperman2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

Which is why it is best to hear it from the horses mouth. Vg chartz is an estimate. A good one but easily can be out by 1.6 million in the grand scheme of things

pablo-b2152d ago

after 6 or 7 years and 70mil each, who sells the most is irrelevant

Ezz20132152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

you guys love to jump on the "doesn't matter"wagen ..
when you guys keep say how xbox crashed ps3 in sales
but right after ps3 beat xbox in world wide sales
it's "irrelevant or doesn't matter"
this gen is far from over and will only end when both stop making ps3/360 hardware/software

...but as soon as the NPD charts come out sales matter again


Belking2152d ago

Sorry dude but your figures are just as wrong. MS reported selling over 2 million the past few months with 1.4 million sold over the holidays alone.

greenpowerz2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

Please link Sony's latest official sales data LOL

I have a feeling VGC is guessing based on that false report by that data firm. Some of what VGC does is guess based on percieved demand or trend.

-MSFT won this year.
-MSFT is still ahead by millions
-MSFT destroyed the competition this holiday easily making up for any gains Sony made this year if any, truely.

You will see this when Sony and MSFT release the real latest figures.

Are emotions running high causing delusional desperatness because of next gen being around the corner?

PS3 fanboys think PS3 passed the 360 but VGC has the gap, although smaller than it actually is, still at a hard to beat gap at this point.

Do PS3 fanboys think VGC is rubbish about the overall Worldwide numbers but believe these two VGC articles on the front page of N4G are the words of GOD?

I see the same behavior from PlayStaion fans now as I did before this gen started a few months before the 360 launched.


Come on man. Call Of Duty #1 on PS3 LMAO

This exaggerated manufactured Playstation hype being created in the response of Xbox 720 rumors/leaks/talk to keep PS3 in a certain spotlight is boring and pathetic.

BlaqMagiq242152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

Sources to back up your claims? Nevermind I noticed the one bubble you wasted on BS.

EDIT: The way you're trying to put down the PS3 is pathetic. You say Microsoft is still millions ahead of the PS3. Let me see some facts to back them up, or are you just gonna keep talking out of your ass like you always do?

chukamachine2152d ago

Sorry to burst your green bubble, but SONY outsold M$ all year as usual, but MS did not get enough back this year in the holidays.

Sony are already 400k in front this year alone.

Microcrock and failu have no good exclusives.

HammadTheBeast2152d ago

Let's all remember that PS3 came a whole year after Xbox. Yeah, eat that up.

Jazz41082152d ago

The ps3 is rubbish and really sucked at launch but has gotten better by copying ms online model and giving it out for free.
