PSV - 88,026 (+427%)

I like what I see there...1st edition bundles from last week. Hopefully this week is a lot better though since it is actually released. But 3DS wow @ those numbers lol...handheld gaming is dead though right? /s

agreed. those are numbers of pre-orders only in America! no European numbers and no Japanese centric games just yet. next weeks numbers should see a huge spike in sales. the trick will be to sustain a high average for the following weeks. looking very healthy though.
Solid_Snake37  +   782d ago
im glad its doing well, but why are people still buying mw3?
360ICE  +   782d ago
@Solid_Snake37
Probably because they intend to play mw3.
Tvensky  +   782d ago
360ICE

wow somebody still plays that game? its probobly China or India... or something.. :)
Consoldtobots  +   782d ago
I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS SITE STILL ALLOWS VGCHARTZ FAKE NUMBERS. WHAT A JOKE.
360ICE  +   782d ago
AND I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S NOT BUTTER
CarlitoBrigante  +   782d ago
Agreed, FakeChartz is one of the worst sites out there, worst 360 and Nintendo fanboys, they always put PS3 numbers lower and later adjust when official numbers are out.
SilentNegotiator  +   782d ago
Another game with an online pass takes first place. :/

And ps3 has gone back to selling the most in the HD console space now that the holidays of blobjillions of marketing dollars is over. Shocker.

PSV will blow it away eventually its all around a better handheld and has everything that makes ipad etc.. a major seller. As for these stats seems PS3 and its games once again are taking the rest of the market by the reins. They have been for a long time now yet people still insist they are losing? Anybody actually seen sales for FF13-2 on 360? 350,000 worldwide on 360 and a massive 1.6 million on ps3. 360 a shooters console that factoid there proves it.
MakiManPR  +   782d ago
Wanna see next week how the PSV did. Wow those 3DS numbers are impressive. NINTENDO: "IT PRINTS MONEY HAHAHAHAHA!"
Half-Mafia  +   782d ago
Nintendo are not making any money on the 3DS after the price drop.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   782d ago
Are you sure?!? It doesn't seem like a very expensive system to make...
Dakidog  +   782d ago
Are they really taking a loss on every system sold, is the 3d screen that expensive? I have a feeling they're still profiting on every system sold.

Also Iwata has took a 50% salary cut.

Not taking Nintys word on that one lol, I could believe the Iwata bit though, he was under a lot of pressure to fix the situation.

Hint:

These are only the first edition bundles. Try harder.
TheGamingArt  +   782d ago
I would like to also see the first real Vita sales! I mean, these numbers are for the early birds with the First Edition bundle (if that/maybe a bit earlier). As you can see, nothing is listed for EU either.

erasure242  +   782d ago
Even those numbers for the First Edition are VERY good IMO... The official release numbers should be very good...
Razongunz  +   782d ago
88k on the first edition bundle isnt bad at all.

and they only counted 3 days worth of sales aswell, which is nice seeing as this is US only and only a small portion decided on the first edition one.
looking forward to see this weeks sales seeing as it released worlwide this week.

GLOBAL Weekly Chart Week Ending 18th Feb 2012
Razongunz  +   782d ago
yes.. it says ENDING 18th feb.. the vita didnt release in EU or AU before 22nd. so the 88K only count from 15th-18th which is 3 days in ONLY US. how can it count sales Global when it didnt release Global before 22nd?

those 88k are ONLY First edition ones..and US is the only who got first edition.

the only way that these numbers was from EU and AU aswell is if someone imported it from US to EU or AU, which is HIGLY unlikely seeing it released in those 2 contintents only a week later.

i deeply apologise if i missed sometime or cmes out as a stupid tard here now, but when it says ENDING 18th doesnt that mean that they counted sales up until the 18th? and the vita didnt exist in EU at that time.. or in AU, so they could only have been able to count the US first edition. am i wrong? if so please explain.
ronin4life  +   782d ago
It is global, so Japan vita sales count.
LX-General-Kaos  +   782d ago
You seem to be getting bent out of shape on an excercism type of level over the sales of the Playstation Vita. There is no need to try to convince the world that the sales are higher then what they say on this chart. Everything will be perfectly ok.

If it is bothering you that much then you should take a look at the sales of the Nintendo 3DS. Those are some sales that will likely put a smile on your face as you see great people succeeding.

There are plenty of Nintendo exclusive games on the Nintendo 3DS that can and will cheer you up and provide a smile for that angry face. Nintendo took on the responsibility to make angry gamers like you smile and they will deliver.

Have yourself a good day sir and i hope you pick up your copy of Super Mario 3DS land before then end of the day.

Rated E for Everyone

PSV - 88,026 global?

its not ture...
Razongunz  +   782d ago
its 88k in US only from feb 15th-18th the first global vita sales havent released yet

these 88k numbers are only counting first edition sold in the US only from 15th of feb to 18th.

Edit: it counts japan aswell, and that would be like 15k from japan so about 70k of those numbers are US first edition

I expected vita to do better here than Japan. PSP was that way
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   782d ago
Um... It probably will. We don't have numbers from the actual release...just the 1st editions. Myself and seven of my friends bought a Vita this week, AFTER the wide release of the system. I'm pretty sure it's doing well.
Game4life  +   782d ago
Me and my brother and his fiance all have a vita. they decided Wednesday they wanted one
Hicken  +   782d ago
You expected better out of three days of sales in two countries?
AWBrawler  +   782d ago
OMG you guys misunderstood.I was saying that it did better here, And I expected that, so it met my expectations.
LOL_WUT  +   782d ago
Glad twisted metal is doing good.
Gamerita  +   782d ago
those 88k vita's sold are from japan,are people too thick to realize this ? vita numbers for us & eu will be out next week since vita was only released on the 22nd.
SkyKing  +   782d ago
Are you retarded? It's say global, besides the vita only sold 12k this week in japan
LX-General-Kaos  +   782d ago
Most importantly. It is great to see the Nintendo 3DS taking care of business worldwide. Leading the industry as the #1 gaming platform of choice. The higher the sales are the more love and exclusives we all get from Nintendo.

This seems to be a trend that will continue well off into the future as the Nintendo 3DS shows NO signs of slowing down anytime soon if ever.

Good luck to all other consoles out there and hopefully one day they can achieve the same type of critical success and the Nintendo 3DS.

LOL look at MW3 sales, ps3 version surpasses 360's version, lol who said that call of duty series are for xbox only?.. FAIL!
Half-Mafia  +   782d ago
The stupid US media.
clearelite  +   782d ago
I wouldn't assume they are much less stupid elsewhere personally, although I do gave you an agree :D

I hope the Twisted Metal dominance is correct, as I would like to see more devs sticking to their own visions.

that's one way to view it, the other is that xbox360 owners dont wait for modern warfare 3 to drop in price like so many of the ps3 crowd does

When graphics/performance don't work - Throw Exclusivity deals
When exclusivity deals don't work - Throw sales figures
When sales figures don't work - Throw price vs attach rate
When price vs attach rate don't work - What's next? Throw konect integration?

I'm so glad Twisted Metal is doing well. :) I love it!

And the 3DS keeps on rolling.
nevin1  +   782d ago
Am i reading this right? 360= 64.9M PS3= 61.7M

i mean people for years makes it seem 360 sales are WAAAAAy ahead of PS3.

MysticStrummer  +   781d ago
The software numbers are more interesting to me. 5 PS3 games in the top 10 and only 3 360 games, with the number 1 game being a PS3 exclusive. 3 of the top 5 for PS3 vs 1 for 360. So... PS3 users don't buy games and PS3 exclusives don't sell, eh?
Fel08  +   782d ago
3DS has nothing to worry about
SDF Repellent  +   782d ago
Just pulled the trigger on the PSVITA. Bought the wifi version, 16gb memory card, 3 games(Uncharted, Wipeout, MvsC3), case, and film protector. Had $145 in Best Buy Credit and the Buy 2 get 1 free games sealed the deal for me. I am so happy with it ATM.
