Media Create published the latest hardware sales from Japan.
Wow. That's all I can say. 275,000+ units moved in a week all thanks to Monster Hunter 4. 3DS is a beast!
Lol those are some high numbers. Yet as a Vita owner I can't help notice the decline of the Vita sales for last 3 or 4 weeks even after a price drop.... I think it's time for some more software.
But you didn't notice the increase in Vita numbers in Europe and America ...
Another japan hardware sales article, another person saying the price cut was ineffective. Once again. These are japan numbers, where a price cut happened months ago.
I am sure we will see Vita sales increase once the PS4 releases and Vita TV. But not having a powerhouse franchise like Monster Hunter or Pokemon really hurts them in Japan.
Where Gribble? In the Japan numbers? I'm confused.
@GribbleGrunger I'm also talking about the American and European markets. A price drop brought sales up about 60% in America but they've been going down steadily since then, according to VG Chartz.
Looks this people: http://abload.de/img/3ds_vi... Looking at 3DS sales and Vita sales side-by-side is really impressive.
Wow, that is impressive
VITA JPN software = 1 3DS 3rd party IP Impressively sad for Sony's handheld. The Sony employee/s that was supposed to keep MH/Capcom relationship for Sony's handheld must now be MIA/s. It's not even over yet: Pokemon.
Pokemon will sell more copies in Japan than the total number of Vita owners worldwide ;)
Really impressive sales by the 3ds!
Wow @ 3ds
Sony should have got a Monster Hunter on the VITA with much improved graphics.
PS3 – 12,146 Wii – 962 Xbox 360 – 244 good job sony!!! And in about 2 weeks PSP will reach 20 million units in japan according to media create.
damage control ps3 total install base is close to 10m and Wii sits at mid 12m
WOW! 3DS has Officially Outsold HotCakes!
The 3DS has reached deity status.
in reference to the 2 obvious troll who disagreed look at the charts below....that is if you can read.
I'm Speechless!! 3DS LL – 236,700 3DS – 40,092 PS3 – 12,146 Vita – 6,020 PSP – 5,449 Wii U – 5,003 Wii – 962 Xbox 360 – 244
Whats crazy is I can remember a post a few days ago where someone said the 3DS would sell about 180,000 this week thanks in part to MHIV and I thought that number was a little high. Boy was I wrong. lol
"I am sure we will see Vita sales increase once the PS4 releases and Vita TV. But not having a powerhouse franchise like Monster Hunter or Pokemon really hurts them in Japan." lol 7 idiots are in denial look at the fucking charts assholes, and its because people dont give a shit about vita in japan.
It's true, but that comes down to the games ultimately. If the Vita had a Monster Hunter game, it would move units. Japanese people love their Monster Hunter and their Pokémon. Seriously, wait until X & Y drops and we'll see another couple of weeks of these types of sales numbers.
