Guess 20K is the new Vita baseline. Not bad. Some more killer apps (don't care what IGN says, Soul Sacrifice is one - almost 300K in Japan and probaly 450K or more WW) and they'll be fine.

I think vita sales will remain at 20K+ for quite some time. To my memory, there's not much coming for it till Dragon's Crown. I hope im wrong though.

I doubt the Vita will stick to 20K+ next week considering this Golden Week has been disappointing for it. The Wii U's currently in a worse position though.

the PSP is slowly dying off now
it's good that the momentum is now with the Vita but kinda sad too at the same time! kinda reminding me about the time when I bought my 1st PSP over there, white in color, in 2005, several months after it was launched. The PSP will always be remembered just like the PS2

I love both of your Vitas, and I adore my own Vita as well.

I do admit, however, that I fail to see what this has to do with the weekly Media Create sales. ^^; Seems a bit off topic.

great respond there sherimae.
what games are you currently playing on your vita?
daclynk  +   440d ago
Good numbers for all. 3ds is a beast. love my 3ds. Wii U slightly up.what cos that with no software out. wonder why.
knifefight  +   440d ago
Golden Week, which is one of the 5 highest overall sales weeks in Japan (most years). A boost is virtually guaranteed for most new/recent systems.

Golden Week is kinda like the Japanese equivalent to Black Friday. Excellent numbers all around but not as big as i thought it would be considering the holiday.

4900+ is slightly up what in the world are you blind

Luv my Vita 2! ^~^

2 versions of 3DS outsells the rest of the list. Granted everyone else is pretty old except Vita and wiiU.
3DS dosent stop tho.
Williamson  +   440d ago
It used to hurt watching my vita get beat badly in sales by the 3ds, but buying a 3ds xl has lessened the pain. Btw kid icarus uprising in amazing, controls are fine in the air but on land gets kind of difficult to control.

That's the main complaint for everyone, if you have the chance get Fire Emblem awakening. You won't regret it...

hopefully...
DivineAssault  +   440d ago
Good thing vita is starting to pick up out there.. Now we have better chances of seeing more games get released.. Then hope they get localized for the west.. Oh well, the chances are higher now

I still don't understand those crazy Animal Crossing 3DS sales. I guess New Leaf is THAT good.
gamer42  +   440d ago
Actually life simulator games are very popular in japan, that's why tamadachi collection and animal crossing sell so well.
knifefight  +   440d ago
All of the Animal Crossing games have sold extremely well. The Wild World sold in the multi millions too. New Leaf does look to be the most successful so far though, it's true.
