Everything but 3DS is seling terribly.

3DS should see a boost this week, but everything should drop even further.
Zefros  +   420d ago
If 3ds is selling good then vita is too lol. Only 6k diff.
Faztkiller  +   420d ago
Actually the 3DS sold like 37,000 right cause you have to add them together? But vita is doing OK. I have no idea why people pick 3DS over a vita.

17k difference counting both 3ds models. Vita is doing pretty good though, its been a while since its last major release.
Edit: 15k difference if you count vita tv sales.

Your comment was fine until you made it a competition. "I have no idea why people pick 3DS over a vita."

Japan: Because 3DS receives SIGNIFICANTLY more Japanese developer support, and has proven and established IP's on the platform.

EU: Proven IP's and entry price helps it outsell the Vita.

NA: Again, Proven IP's and entry price helps it outsell the Vita.

The Vita should pick up the pace once, Vita TV hits EU and NA, but they need to patch all the problems first and replace that DualShock 3 with a DualShock 4 and allow the touch pad to work like the front touch screen.

On a side note, after looking at all these sales charts, the 3DS is blowing away in Japan, but actually only doing well in NA and EU. Looking at the PS3 and 360 sales they were pulling in 6 - 8 million annually in their best region alone, while the 3DS is just doing great across each region 4M NA and EU, 5M Japan (the real success story).

It also has me wondering just how much the PS4 is going to sale when it launches. Since sales for everything are way down, from January of 2013.

I miss the days when Nintendo fanboys were banished to the dark recesses of this site. Dealing with Xbox fanboys is bad enough; having to put up with delusional comments like this us almost enough to drive a crazy man sane.

Numbers are down for everything. The 3DS is only doing well because of having two SKUs.

In any case, that will likely change once the PS4 launches soon. Expect better Vita sales, and if Sony ever gets around to the compatibility problem, the Vita TV should see a significant increase as well.
Concertoine  +   420d ago
Im not even a nintendo fanboy... im stating facts. Vita has 2 SKU's. Vita and vita slim. 3 counting vita tv. The 2ds isnt out in japan.
Theyre both selling okay considering theres a bit of a game drought and the ps4 is coming soon, i dont get why you bash him for downplaying vita then go and downplay the 3ds.
This site, geez.

Vita has 3 SKU's and its selling the way it is.

VITA tv and vita slim are selling so badly they arent even tracking.
GribbleGrunger  +   420d ago
The Vita numbers ARE the Vita 'slim' numbers. The original Vita was fazed out ages ago in Japan. I've seen spinning but this is getting ridiculous. Starting to get a little worried?

You forgot sony and PC fanboys, because we can't make the argument that all fanboys suck? If you could have told 10yr old me that I could own 3 major gaming consoles, a phone that plays games and a gaming PC? I would have been on the all fanboys suck bandwagon a long time ago.
Yep  +   420d ago
You would miss the days when only the voices in your head existed. Wake up and smell the roses man. Sony isn't the only gaming company out there.
Hicken  +   420d ago
The Vita only has two SKUs. That's obvious from the list. And as, as I stated, Vita TV is hampered by game compatibility problems.

As for fanboys, I tune out Sony fanboys, and PC fanboys have always been an annoyance.

@Concert: I'm not downplaying the 3DS at all, putting it in perspective: the 3DS is doing well because of that secondary SKU, speaking purely of numbers. I know full well that it's the library that's pushing the 3DS's numbers.
Concertoine  +   420d ago
Okay thanks for clarifying.
To be honest i never see the vita tv doing well in japan, at least. If the portable vita is having trouble in a largely portable-centric market the one chained to the tv will suffer moreso. They should have launched VTV in NA or EU first, at least consoles sell better there.

3DS is selling 10k higher, and next week will likely sell 100k next week because of dragon quest.

100k vs probably less than 20k?

its terrible.
sherimae2413  +   420d ago
100k? well lets see, ill quote u for this ok!!!!

and do u even know that the 3ds is down YoY its declining
and the VITA is up YoY

yes the 3ds is selling ahead of all platforms this week but overall performance compared to last year its worrisome

If the Vita is selling miserably then what do we call the WiiU ?
GreenRanger  +   420d ago
Nintendo fans: Laugh at Vita sales numbers and try not to draw attention to the Wii U sales numbers.

Sony fans: Laugh at Wii U sales numbers and try not to draw attention to Vita sales numbers.

I'm so mad at myself for selling my Vita last year when I got laid off from work. If I could have held out a little longer I would still have my Vita. Oh well 2014 is the year I get another one then they can add another Vita sold.
