Media Create published the latest hardware sales from Japan. The PlayStation Vita gets its second full week of sales.
Numbers look ok, some items dropped but that was expected. Can't wait to see Vita's performance once some core Japan games launches on the system.
Vita is getting completely crushed by the 3DS!
but psp is still selling loads unlike the ds
Because everyone owns a ds. The same cannot be said of the psp.
Right, but when does that happen? Name one game coming out in Japan within the next three months that can move significant numbers of hardware.
They've sold nearly all of their initial shipment and the rest are the 3G models which Japanese gamers do not want. It's nothing to worry about. The media and people are stupid.
The 3ds received a quick shipment after launch because of shortages. How unlikely is it the vita didn't?
oh great..another month of vita doom & gloom..jesus first 2 days = 320k second week 71k third week 42k.. get ready for another month of VITA is DOOMED articles... -.- hope all the journalists get swineflu or something until the vita has released in US and EU.
Its going to be that way for a while. Even when it comes out in Europe shortly afterwards the sales will drop (like all console/handheld launches) and we will see a million fail articles again. Then comes XMAS where the Vita will have a killer App and it will start selling like crazy just like the 3DS.
psp gets suikoden, a new shining srpg, a new legend of heroes. The vita gets nothing like that so thats why the psp is selling more
So many excuses
@below no, lowest was around 50k, one week before new price.
That isnt an excuse. Exclusives sell hardware
dumb sony's hater, always hating best hardware, best games...pathetic :) quote : "They've sold nearly all of their initial shipment and the rest are the 3G models which Japanese gamers do not want. It's nothing to worry about. The media and people are stupid." and it's 450 000 only for japan ! more than 3 years for 360, in 3 weeks.
These games can be downloaded and played on the PSV. Oh wait, you don't know that. I'm sorry, a closet Nintendo fanboy would never know that.
wasn't the 3ds at its lowest point like 20k? then came of course the huge price drop. I think if they drop the prices for some vita games to 10 dollars less it will sell more. (uncharted- golden abyss is like S50) Also can't wait for ps vita release for worldwide. :)
yep, before the 3DS price drop, the 3DS was selling below or around 32k for a few weeks, and was getting spanked by the PSP in sales. Things didn't get better util the price drop. Nintendo fanboys loves to ignore these numbers when bashing the Vita source: http://www.tgdaily.com/game... at one point the 3DS only sold about 4k source: http://playstationlifestyle...
Just Wait and the Vita will do like the psp selling great even after 6 years
Isnt it at this point that retailers are running out of stock? Sony shipped only 500,000 and since launch (what is it 2 weeks and 2 days ago?) they have sold basicly 450,000 of those units. That's still a lot and I am hearing on the neogaf forums that Vita's are becoming hard to find.
Vita's problem in Japan is simple. Sony launched it with no killer apps that appealed to the Japanese market. Usually this is ok, but when your competitor is half the price of your system, and has 3 HUGE mainstream titles coming within the same two weeks (Monster Hunter 3G, Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7), it's going to cause problems.
:O Everything down except the PS2...
PS2 FTW... :D
lol.. too many Fanboys around here look at disagrees!!
