so it's 325,000... that's even better. if it hits 1 million in a week i'd be surprised... but it's not out of the question

They only shipped 500,000. Next shipment probably won't be until early in 2012. They'll sellout shortly though, that much we can pretty much be assured of.

I think they only have 700k in Japan for the rest of the year. Next shipments will probably be at the start of Jan 2012 to accommodate their 4th qtr shipments which will probably include the world wide release.

@Misterhbk

Then that means the report of Sony shipping an extra 200k to retailers is wrong? That means they only have like 175k to last them for the rest of the year. I'm not sure that's enough before they can send out their next shipment.

Misterhbk2470d ago

They didn't ship 700k. They sold through 65% of the shipment which totaled at 325k which means the shipment was 500k

Misterhbk2470d ago

Yeah, they have less than 200k to ride the remainder of the year. Definitely gonna be shortages, especially since people buy gifts for new years in Japan rather than Christmas. They're window for big shopping still had another week left. Next weeks Vita numbers will probably sell through the remainder of the shipment.

Not amazing numbers, but definitely solid. I was surprised to see that it doubled PSP launch numbers.

February can't get here soon enough!

MasterCornholio2469d ago

Pretty good numbers and it's good to see the Vita doing better at launch than the PSP.

Sony will need to tackle demands and ship more vitas to retailers before the end of this year,by the end of this week,there might not be any more vitas to sell !

I wonder if they're gonna release the numbers for online pre-orders. Many already got their PSV even before launch.
