Didn't the Vita release on the 22nd?

Edit: Nvm, these are those $350 First Editions according to VG. I can't wait to see how the $250 launch model did if the First Edition models sold that much ("No one's gonna buy those" lol). I still gonna wait for NPD for the official numbers though.

@ Financial

I see. Twisted Metal did well. I think VGchartz has Resistance 3 at a little over 1 million now. Not a flop in my eyes.

Eh, technically, but those "first edition" packs were released earlier to some people.

Nice to see that Little Deviants did that well too. Reviews were pretty harsh for that game and to see it hit 50,000. *claps* Still tripping at how well the First Editions Vitas sold though. Especially considering that the 3DS was way cheaper ($160).

Edit: Lol, where'd the approves go? XD

I think Resistance 3 was largely considered a "flop" because the intial sales were less than stellar, it only really started to pick up steam after it dropped in price so quickly. I can typicially find the game as cheap, or cheaper, than inFamous 2, which launched earlier, and without an online multiplayer component to boot.

The sales for Twisted Metal are very promising, all things considered, with the connectivity issues, and some mixed reviews. Here's to hoping it can maintain a steady growth over the next couple of weeks, and enjoy a much smoother launch in Europe.

230K Twisted Metal. . .not bad, it took Resistance 3 six weeks to reach that number in the US, so I'd say TM is off to a good start.
70k Vita first editions sold with 25k Uncharted sold? Thats more than a 3rd of Vita owners enjoying the game. A great week for SONY and PLAYSTATION in the US. . .yes?
Rynx  +   934d ago
Sorry bro, you've been stealth trolling SONY articles for a while now. It ain't going to work now.

OT. These are very promising numbers for the Vita and for only half way into the month (if you count the release of the first edition bundle, which came out a week earlier than the official launch). Can't wait to see official numbers.

He's right though. Now hurry and click his bubbles and whine his comment away.
Rynx  +   934d ago
Hahaha really? Another notorious troll coming to the aid of Financial Gamer? Hahaha. I should bubble you up for being funny. Well not because you were funny, but because of the scenario that just occurred.

The Nintendo 3DS had an amazing showing even though being bested by the XBOX 360 in its home territory. The Nintendo Wii is still seeing decline because Nintendo supporters are preparing to move forward to the Nintendo Wii U.

Not a bad showing in the US.

Also happy to see Sony expand its install base with the Playstation Vita. There will be great competition between the two amazing handhelds in future.

Good sales for Twisted Metal
Promising overall growth.

Also - it's nice to see the 3DS version of Tales of the Abyss up there, I read positive things about that title.

70,000 first edition bundles?

Damn, to be honest, I was expecting a little more than half of that. Seeing as how majority of Vita owners probably went for the wifi model, the first week of sales should be very strong.

I think those First week US sales of PS Vita are terrible!!
Should be much more than that!!! I hope these sales results are wrong. Maybe we should wait until just after 28th Feb for a full 7 day week sales forcast, with acual offical results from Sony.

3DS sold 400,000 units in first US sales week at almost the same price as WiFi version of PS Vita.
