wow, vita is holding its own, that is if these numbers are factual, considering that its vg chartz..

GribbleGrunger2351d ago

it's all we have to go by. i've always followed these numbers for better or worse; whether it favoured my console of choice or not. i'd agree: Vita numbers are healthy and PS3 is doing pretty darn well too. 3DS is proving the Ipad/Iphone fanboys wrong as usual.

SilentNegotiator2350d ago (Edited 2350d ago )

Man, the Vita is looking more and more doomed all the time. Less than 40K behind its direct competitor...shoot.

/sarcasm

pandaboy2351d ago (Edited 2351d ago )

sony doing pretty well here; surprised at those PSP numbers... why wouldn't you want a Vita instead. Perhaps the lack of Japanese tailored software in comparison to the PSP?

Interesting point; if the ps3 outsells the 360 by that margin every week if will surpass it in sales by the end of the year. However, we all know how strong MS is during the holiday period and especially with Halo4 expected it will be a difficult task.

rezzah2351d ago

That and more likely the fact that it is more expensive.

The reason why the PS2 still sells is because it is cheap and offers a large variety of games.

When the PS3 drops to a really low price sales will shoot up. Same with Vita.

GribbleGrunger2351d ago

absolutely! proof, if it was ever needed, that games is going to accelerate PSvita sales in Japan... well, at least to a healthy degree

arnyftw2351d ago

The Vita is too expensive for most the world and the PSP probably had a price cut making it more affordable.

xursz2351d ago

Not even the price of an iPhone. And the iPad is nearly 800$ yet Apple lays one out every year for iBots to flock to like flies on shit.

pandaboy2351d ago (Edited 2351d ago )

It also seems as though the more niche multiplatform and sports titles sell a lot more strongly on the ps3 these days. 360 will always have the monopoly on the big hitters this gen though.

edit: The Vita really isn't too expensive. Note the amount of yuppies and hipsters paying up to £1000 for apple laptops that you would pay half the price for better specs on PC/laptop. The recession is long over, granted people are more frugal now, however, the Vita is priced perfectly in its value for money.

Maybe in developing countries PSP will be the go to gaming device but gaming has never really been of particular interest in these places anyway.

Numbers are fake. If you want actual numbers go to NeoGAF. That is all.

tiffac0082350d ago (Edited 2350d ago )

Doesn't NeoGAF base their sales from NPD and Mediacreate too? I believe VGchartz corrects their numbers in the end to align with those numbers as well.

@Strikepackage Bravo (below)

We'll find out if that is truly the case once the 1st qtr shipments of this year arrives because the speculations is the retailers over estimated the demand of the 360 during the holidays.

If there is a substantial dip in the 360's 1st qtr shipments then more than likely MS over-shipped last year due to the retailers lack of foresight but if the shipment remains steady as it was last year then the discussion is pretty much final for 2011.

And I believe the 2011 shipments was actually a tie wasn't it?

Congratulations to SONY and NINTENDO the best selling consoles of all time

AWBrawler2350d ago
