No Vita sales?.... Hmm....

By the looks of it, all three companies are doing fairly well! MS with their Xbox360, SONY with VITA, PSP and PS3 combined (lets not forget they are also selling PS2) and Nintendo with Wii and 3DS.

Healthy industry means great gaming future. Please don't let someone else let you think otherwise. We need these companies competing for the top spot all the time. Competition drives everything from great hardware to great software. It's good to be a gamer REGARDLESS of the camp you are in.

Sony never provides numbers for any of their consoles and NPD never shows any either. I always wonder why they do that....its not like the numbers are bad. Look at the PS3, its ahead of the Wii.

"SONY with VITA, PSP and PS3 combined"

Congrats Sony!!! Imagine what the worldwide numbers are!

still way less than nintendo's I would imagine :)

nope, sony has been outselling nintendo in the hardware department for a while now. Last week global sales:
Sony (200k PS3s, 170k PSV, 40k PSP = 410k) Nintendo (80k Wii, 200k 3DS, 50k DS = 330k) Source: vgchartz

I hate to break it to you but those numbers are far from accurate.

In 2011 its a fact that nintendo sold the most hardware and software worldwide than either microsoft or sony, including the number 1 system worldwide.

please, dont use vg chartz numbers to pretend someone else is wrong

iNMyFiN4LH0uR2232d ago

vgchartz have always been estimates before the sales data than corrected following the release of actual data. should you choose to take them as accurate is up to you. nevertheless, for 2011 its true Nintendo when DS, 3DS and Wii combined outsold Sony's PS3 and PSP but the Wii failed to outsell the PS3 (14 million for the ps3 vs 11.7 million for the Wii). Moreover, you are also wrong about software as Sony outsold Nintendo. Sony 146 million vs Nintendo 135 million. I am far from a fanboy, just wanted to correct your claims made of the top of your head. Cheers.
