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

seriously what is wrong with every one. every console release has been called doomed at the start its been out for a few days and people are saying over. those arnt even bad numbers give it a few months and im pretty sure it will rack up some decent numbers.

Wow i was 280k off. Oh well. BTW, Enterbrain = Famitsu numbers which are reliable. If people expect a higher opening from Media Create numbers, i would advise not to set expectations. Media Create usually tracks lower than Famitsu.



3DS Friend Code:   4596-9822-6909

If it were not the holiday season in Japan, I would say these numbers are... ok. But this being the holiday season, these numbers are not good at all.



Currently Playing: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, Professor Layton and the Curious Village

That's quite bad in my opinion. Didn't psp do similar numbers last year just because of Monster Hunter? I don't understand how in their right minds Sony let the franchise go. It should have been a launch title. Oh well.

Who said anything about letting the franchise go?  The 3DS hasn't even been out a year and the Vita just came out, yet some people want to assume that Sony will never get another MH game?  That's just rediculous.



Why is everyone assuming Capcom won't release a Monster Hunter for Vita? Capcom loves money. BTW Decent numbers.

Vita's launch sales are fine.

Also the 3DS launch sales were excellent -- Nintendo even shipped ~3.2million units worldwide IIRC, it was the following quarter where sales dropped and Nintendo struggled to ship 700k units with the trend liking to follow for a third quarter that forced them to drop the price.

I still think that Sony should have paid Capcom for exclusivity, since MH did so well on the psp. Or at least make sure that they announce that a MH game is coming out at some point. Do you remember the jump in 3ds sales when Capcom announced a game for 3ds?

It's much more likely that Nintendo moneyhatted Capcom for it.

I agree with this, I just can't see how Capcom would put it on 3DS without Nintendo shelling out for it. (not that it's done bad, but I believe it would have done better on Vita given that is where the userbase is)

And don't give me this honour crap, as if it's below them to moneyhat.



 

Vita still has a wild card: Call of Duty. Lets wait how it does in the Americas and EU. Before that, I would say it is outrageous to call doom on it.



pwin´ every other villain since 1994

It could still be a timed exclusive, yeah?  It would have to be a hell of a moneyhat to dissuade them from millions of potential sales.
