Media Create published the latest hardware sales from Japan.
Vita sales to date should be over 500,000
Aren't they just shy (Sony still hasn't sold out of the launch shipment of the console)
There's going to be some lost in shops nobody goes too.. damaged box's at retailers or ones stolen by employees.. + 3G versions where peeps already bought WiFi... ....so lets all just wait six months and see the figures then including global sales... ME.. I'm gonna get one regardless but not till April when I will hopefully be feeling a bit flush!..
3ds sales down hard from last week.
240,819 - 197,952 does not equal to a negative number o.o
"3ds sales down hard from last week" does not equal a negative number either. The world does not operate in extremes. A thing can be less without being A NEGATIVE NUMBER!!!!!
@Biggest Yes but you missing the point...........
@Biggest I think this is a translation thing see.. I think dear old @Game3s was saying basically that 197,952 is still quite a good number of sales! Or.. "it might of dropped off 42k but the 3DS is still doing great!" :D
@lnd 3ds sales rose. The bigger number is this week.
I think the people missing the point are the ones agreeing with belal's statement.
omg i can't belive my own eyes the vita sold more than last week lol! horray :P..atleast it going up..for now xD keep rising in sales! 320,000 + 72,000 + 42,000 + 42,000 = ca. 470,000.. its not exact but its about the number sold so far..so it should be 30k left of the first shippment..but then again..alot of those are 3Gs and..i'm pretty damn sure sony allready retocked by now..so saying that the stock is the issiue for low sales shouldnt be the problem now..but hey its small numbers..but atleast its more than last week.
The launch day supplies can't be on their own here, it has been nearly a month. There have to have been further shipments. Edit. Well, now I feel like an idiot. I Should have read your entire comment before I replied. It seems we agree About the status of stock. My bad...
hehe no problem :P yeah the vita doesnt sell like hot cakes, but its not terrible ether. the world allready got a handheld and its the 3ds..so beeing over 6 months late the vita does a pretty good job at catching up. lower sales than the 3ds doesnt mean its bad. the vita will do good most likely..atleast i hope so :)
PS3 is doing well.
The 3ds sales and the vita sales make me LOL for different reasons one good one not
Your comment makes LOL for different reasons ones had a global release one has not ...lets wait and see shall we..
these are japanese charts. Global has nothing to do with it
50 thousand a week is bad sales? Please explain that to me, cuz I don't get it.
Its bad right after Christmas. Its bad when 5 year old home consoles are beating a 5 week old brand new Handheld. Its bad when its the successor to a massive debut Sony handheld (PSP). Its bad when theres no software in the Top 20. Its bad when the competitor is selling 6 times as many consoles.
In addition to what ozstar said, you're also marking up the number by about 15%. Calling it 50,000 yen it was 42,000 for each of the last 2 weeks is rounding up...proportionally, by quite a bit. >_> For this point in the Vita's life, that's not a good number. People are just disappointed because it's not meeting expectations is all. In the Vita's 4th week of recording sales, it sold 42,000. The PSP, by comparison, sold 111,194 in its 4th week, so ah...people are gonna compare. It's what we do ^_^
Ok, whats funny is there is only Nintendo an Sony two systems in the hand held game system market, an yet it seems some gamers cannot wait to call one system a failure? When there is only two in this part of the market? Lol.... An yet you have more it seems want to bring in smartphones as a negative only for the PSVita but not the 3DS? That is like putting the PC market sales of PC systems vs game console sales..Lol. So the PSVita is 2nd place..Wow like that is such a bad thing? If some gamers want to bring in smartphones such as Apple an Android Os powered devices. Sony now has over 5 Playstation suite powered smartphone an tablet devices combined in the market not including other manuf. That has their smartphone an tablet powered devices that are also playstation suite cert. An since every Android OS 4.3 has game pad support for playstation 3 an xbox360 game pad controller support for Android 4.3 Ics. Should those now be also counted in the game handheld market also? Since it seems some gamers want to put Apple iphone an ipads detriment to the PSVitas viability to survive? Why do you think Sony now owns 100% of Sony Ericsson? why do you think Sony made the Playstation Suite? Why do you think Sony has made the playstation Suite run also on the PSVita? Its kinda Silly to see all these media sites an some Gamers that want to call the PSVita a failure already based on sales of only one region? With only two companies that has released such handhelds for game playing. One comes in 1st the other 2nd but somehow some way the 2nd handheld is already a failure...Wow.really?
Vita is obviously Sony's Virtual boy. Just sayin'
