Wow! 22% drop. It didn't take long before 3ds took back Europe from the vita. Are people still saying its selling according to expectations?
GribbleGrunger  +   1003d ago
and the 3DS was beaten by the PS3, a five year old console.

see what you did? i've given you a good example so that you can work it out

Gribble, the PS Vita got outsold by a DVD player with no decent or recent exclusives...

Good Vita and PS3 sales. Great to see that the PS3 is number one yet again in Europe.
yabhero  +   1003d ago
a five year old CONSOLE, which you are comparing to a HANDHELD... umm Bundi is obviously talking about handhelds so bringing up a console has nothing to do with it...
Hopefully 3DS and Vita do well...

lol @ the vita

Only the strong will survive.
MasterCornholio  +   1003d ago
Nope that's a load of bunk. Contrary to your religious devotion to Nintendo, it is possible for 2 handhelds to exist in the same market. Granted one of the devices will vastly outsell the other but that doesn't mean that the device with inferior sales is a complete failure. Because if that was true then the 360 and the PS3 would be complete failures when compared to the Wii. But ironically, these two devices have more support from 3RD party devs than the Wii does. Seriously how did it feel to only own a Wii and miss out on Batman Arkham City, The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, Mass Effect 3, Mass Effect 2, GTAIV, Red Dead Revolver, Border Lands etc.

Sales are not everything when it comes to a gaming device. As long as the device sells enough to earn solid support from developers then the rest is moot.

Uncharted 3 is still going strong ^_^.
mushroomwig  +   1003d ago
It's great to see Uncharted 3 still selling so well. :)
AdmiralSnake  +   1003d ago
Yeah it really is, the legs in Europe is quite good. It should surpass Uncharted 2 easily.
Sizzon  +   1003d ago
Yeah the legs in Europe are strong, but it has dropped a bit in the US.

Good job SONY, good job
Awesome_Gamer  +   1003d ago
Good numbers for the PS3, good job Sony
danny818  +   1003d ago
if the psv, stays the same it might surpass the 3DS. The 3DS had a strong start but sales tanked late spring and during summer.
yabhero  +   1003d ago
Maybe your talking about Europe only but the 3DS started bad and got better recently... worldwide the 3DS is outselling the Vita about
2:1
170,000:90,000
regardless i hope both do well
danny818  +   1002d ago
yeah, cuz its been in the market for a while, and got better games and a price drop. The vita is on its way there, where it will show its true potential, sales wise.
PiperMCFierceson  +   1002d ago
Anyone think the vita,will sell 5 mill at years end?
MoFo1111  +   1002d ago
Its needs a price cut
PiperMCFierceson  +   1002d ago
I think if it can sell anywhere from 1.5 to 2 mill before the holidays it will I love mine and I want it to be heavily supported by all devs this thing has so much potential.
honkyjesus  +   1002d ago
I just came by to say my dumb handheld is better than your six year old console.
moparful99  +   1002d ago
As with most sony hardware i'm willing to be that people are waiting for a hardware revision/and or a price drop.. Come christmas the vita's sales will jump.. In the meantime I cant wait for gravity rush.. Hope sony announces a god of war title for the psv soon..
mushroomwig  +   1002d ago
A hardware revision? The product has only just been released, it'll take 2-3 years before that happens.

Besides, where do you get that logic from? Apple products (namely the iPad) sell incredibly well yet a new revision is released almost every year. So you're saying it only happens with Sony?
moparful99  +   1001d ago
I'm saying alot of people are waiting for a hardware revision before buying one because sony always does a hardware revision and improves their product in every way possible..

Why are you talking about apple? I'm talking about game consoles. Sony does more hardware revisions than anyone so people have become accustomed to waiting for a better version down the line... I never implied nor said that sony was the only one... Stop reading into my comment so much.. I love my vita and wish everyone else would buy one so that we can see alot more games but the truth is everyone will wait it out..

Ugh. Vgchartz guesstimates. Anyone noticed they took away the ability to actually go back and look at their historical figures by time period? That was always comical to have a look at when official numbers or NPD data was released.
Ulf  +   1002d ago
Sales, in given categories, tend to balance out on a revenue basis.

To give an honest evaluation of the "popularity" of PSVita vs the 3DS, you need to divide the sales #s by the revenue it takes to acquire the units.

3DS units tend to range from $150-$170 for the base unit, whereas Vita tend to range from $250-300. Dividing by those numbers puts them pretty much in the same ballpark, which is expected.
