That is an ugly picture painted.

damn Vita at rock bottom as usual.

How so? April isn't usually " go buy a console month" or anything like that.

My suggestions:

* Purchase a 3DS now if you haven't already.

* Buy a Vita & Wii U in 2014

* Buy either xbox720 or PS4 in 2014

Jeez. I guess the summer drought truly has begun? It's kind of weird actually, wasn't there a post just last night saying Nintendo software sales had reason by over 50%? Amazing to see a figure like this after that.

Well metro last light just released, Remember me and Fuse are releasing soon and finally the Summer blockbuster, The Last Of Us, is certain to shake things up for the next couple of months.

Unfortunately I think remember me is going to be the sleeping dogs of this year as a huge sleeper hit of the year. Hopefully I am wrong and Remember Me become a success.

Oh yes. The Last of Us is going to be one friggin' beast of a game. That will surely send the PS3 off with a bang. Hopefully we'll see sales increases around that time.

It will all turn around starting next month. Well at least for the Wii U.

Let the games begin. Finally.

1.Xbox - 130 thousand
2. 3DS- slightly above 100 thousand
3.PS3 -100 thousand

that or a price cut is sorely needed for the aging consoles.
