Forums - Sales Discussion - PSVita launch week sales:321k

So it meant 3ds had a better opening in the non-holiday season with overpriced tag and medicore games.Hope Vita will have long legs in the upcoming weeks.

Ouch not very good not even better then the 3DS sales. If the sales remain sluggish over the next couple of month maybe Sony is going to follow Nintendo and have a massive price cut.

Even though Sony is trigger happy, I just can't see how they can afford to make an even bigger loss on Vita (I asked if they were the other day and a Sony fan told me they were, so I assume they are)

Then again I'm surprised Nintendo went as drastic as they did, they're in a better position company wide than Sony though.

321k is fine, it's gonna need some actual killer SW to prop up sales for 2012, nothing out now really cuts the mustard IMO.

My 800k prediction was before I noticed it was only going on sales for 2 days. Either way this is still a great number for the system that doesn't have a killer app right now.

Seece, what do you think of Vita hitting a million sold by the end of the year? And can these numbers be trusted?

BTW the 700k numbers were not real people, Sony never said how much they shipped.


I wanted to state this when those numbers were released, but I didn't want to be branded as pessimistic more than I already am. It was some other company, all reports sited that company's name, but for some reason people really found them credible. 



 

Nevermind, they're not Media Create. I'll wait, just to make sure.



70k over my prediction, not bad for two day sales, it obviously was never going to do those 600K-1M predictions some had.

Rubbish, don't believe you. Been on this site long enough to know how this works, and it was laid out in the OP for you. Besides, not going to sell another 480k over the next 5 days is it? Actually I don't want to know ...

If it stays flat it can? Who knows, unless you are Sony and have hard evidence it's pretty hard to know how a new system is going to trend. I hope it can though, something for them to shout about.





 

I predicted 340K , close enough
Decent sales ^^

Edit :

Console PSP DS
Japan
18,216,858
32,933,892

No wonder 3DS did better ^^



I think I predicted high 300k numbers so if these numbers are right then I wasn't too horribly far off. Can anyone confirm if that is a legit number?

Well it seems to be the enterbrain numbers. You will have to wait until Wednesday for Media Create numbers.

These are numbers from Enterbrain.  I don't know how accurate they are at tracking, though.  Since Nintendo and Sony use Media Create, I'm waiting to see what numbers they have come up with.

Edit:  Beaten.
