Vita = Doomed

Also... WipEout 2048 bombed really hard. Not even in the Top 20.

GribbleGrunger2276d ago

and you seem really happy. why?

Fernando Rocker2276d ago

It's nice to see people eating crow after all the things they said about the 3DS.

darthv722276d ago

3ds, ps3, wii, vita, psp, dsi/ll all declined while the ps2 and 360 increased...?

That is the surprising part.

hellzsupernova2276d ago

LOL you do realise the launch lineup wasnt really geared towards Japan just wait until Gravity Daze and other Japanese targeted games arrive.

ps i didnt bash the 3DS when it launched.

sikbeta2275d ago

Do you realize Japan was the only country where PSP was/is selling great while in any other place is pretty much dead, IF it's doing bad in Japan, how do you think is going to do in other countries where Portable gaming is not as hot as home consoles?

hellzsupernova2274d ago

Dude itll be all good once they get a monster hunter on it and Gravity Daze itll pick up have faith.

moparful992276d ago

I hope you lose some bubbles after a comment like that.. You are so bent out of shape over comments that people made over the 3ds and your answer is to do the exact same thing?? That's the epitomy of hypocrisy...

Fernando Rocker2276d ago

According to Media Create, the last place in the Top 20 was Go Vacation (Wii) with 5,460 units...

So... WipEout 2048 (Vita) sold way less than 5,000. It was in the "just wait until" list that you Sony fanboys always talk about.

GameTavern2276d ago

I don't think going around kicking folks when they are down is the best attitude to have in life.

It also closes the door for possible rational discussion.

Like what Sony can do to turn around their fortunes in Japan. Or how long they can sustain this without doing or saying anything publicly.

Fishy Fingers2276d ago (Edited 2276d ago )

Ahh let him have his fun, clearly Nintendo is failing too do so for him.

Jobesy2276d ago (Edited 2276d ago )

@Gametavern, I don't think being "down" or happy over video game sales are good attitudes to have in life. People shouldn't let such silly things affect them.

Try harder troll. Bye, bye to your bubbles.

We all know that most Vita games are being sold digitally.

GameTavern2276d ago

No we don't.

There's no solid proof of what the sell-through of digital games are.

Until Sony or someone comes out and state a solid number or %, its just hearsay from either side of the table. And grasping at straws.

GribbleGrunger2276d ago (Edited 2276d ago )

like i said a while back, if digital distribution on the Vita takes off then it will be a victim of it's own success because retail game sales will be a lot less. expect months of this nonsense

rexbolt2275d ago

those prob are the sales combined.

sikbeta2275d ago (Edited 2275d ago )

We got it, you're a NDF member and laughing about a dead portable from a Nintendo competitor makes you feel better, right?

Don't worry, the rest of the world keeps giving less than a f*** about portable gaming while switch to casual smartphone gaming and soon enough every I-POS device will eat up all the portable gaming market of Nintendo lol

Even if I don't like this, there is nothing to do, thank God, Android and W-phones are in the market to battle against Apple, so when nobody gives a s*** about portable consoles, Apple will not run a Monopoly :D

I have nothing against Nintendo, I'll sure buy a wii-u because is a next gen system I'm asking for long ago, but portables are going the way of the dinosaur, the Future is not Portable, the Future is about HW ans SW Ecosystems


That's not true at all, Japanese don't care about dd games, they value their physical games more because they can sell them after they finish, also stores make discounts on games so there is not much differnce between physical and dd, Vita is bombing and you can't deny that

klecser2276d ago

And so nothing changes

Gamer A: This is proof that your machine sucks!

Gamer B: No its not.

(Enter rabble-rousing and tomfoolery)

I mean, seriously, its the SAME CONVERSATION EVERY WEEK.

Razongunz2276d ago

my, my. 15k vitas looks dangerous, i personally don't really care much for the numbers, i like the vita and i look forward to the ststem launching outside japan on feb 22nd.

but with this low japanese sales its gonna be iteresting to see what sony does looks like they'll be forced to do the same as nintendo did.

i'm expecting around a 300k atleast in sales when it launch worldwide tough, so we'll see what happens :)

NewMonday2276d ago

and Nintendo seems to have cornered the market with 3rd party games popular in japan, only FF10 is left for the PSV. and even that will be available for the PS3.

hopefully this will drive Sony to expand 1st party studios in Japan, and we can get a new generation of hits and more games like Gravity Rush.
