Europe is such a bizarre region in terms of console sales. Sega and Sony consoles that don't sell as well other places tend to do disproportionately better there. Interesting study in the works, perhaps.

Nice chart. The PS Vita didn't do bad at all. Even sold more in Europe. Glad to see that handhelds are doing well.

Europe is an interesting region. I author a series of books under an alias, and they sold substantially better in Europe during the first few months of release. It was strange. It's the same book and title in both regions (US/UK), but UK peeps just seem to turn out more sales.

Who won? Easy, gamers of course...silly journalists.

isn't that always the excuse when sony loses?

GribbleGrunger4487d ago (Edited 4487d ago )

oh, so the starting gun's just gone off and you think Sony's lost? how about we wait and see what happens in the nest 5 years first.

andibandit4487d ago

I was at least expecting the Vita to beat the PSP, this is a little worrying.

StraightPath4487d ago

ouch vita maybe needs price drop.

SilentNegotiator4487d ago (Edited 4487d ago )

Over a 0.13M difference to its 8th gen competitor?

lol

It'll pick up when it gets a price drop, but you can't exactly estimate its success over a week. It might do just fine with the right advertisement. Who knows?

gypsygib4487d ago

I had a nomad, damn sega, every console and handheld I had of theirs except Genesis failed and I was foolish enough to have them all.

Nakerman4487d ago

Pretty good result for Vita, considering everything. The real test is sustaining those sales. With more games becoming avaliable, I think it should do okay.

Also, a nice price cut would help.

I wish Marvelous ported (or remade) Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns to current consoles and PC.
It's still the most polished game in the Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons series.
