I didn't think it would go to semi-crisis mode by the second week. The only explanation that I've seen in this thread that warrants any thought is that they sold out of the WiFi and only have 3G model left. Basically, any explanation will do over only selling 72k in the second week during the holiday season. Thanks for trying Sony...

So what does Sony Computer Entertainment have to say about what appears to be a slow start for the Vita? Nothing at present, it seems. Bloomberg Japan asked for comment on the Vita's second week performance and was given the old "no comment" from SCE PR head Satoshi Fukuoka.

 


That has to be rough if it is enough to shut up Sony PR.  I thought nothing shut them up?



Sony PR is the loudest, most annoying PR company in the business imo - I'm amazed they don't have anything to say

3DS, son!!  Great to see Nintendo handling business. They righted the ship, and are now stomping into 2012 with LOTS of momentum. Awesome!

I read this post and I LOLed. You are right even when it's obvious BS. They usually have something to say.

great thread. I knew something Sony went bad when I saw so many replies. Vita needs help, it needs games badly, how is Uncharted the big game in Japan Sony. that makes no sense. And that memory card thing is going to hurt them badly.

My thoughts exactly. PSVita needs a real Japanese killer-app (I wonder why they didn't push Gravity Daze, it was perfect for the job). And yes, they should have authorized the re-use of memory sticks. Those new memory cards are a big, big mistake...

Thats because all the killer apps are being released on the PSP, they should of delayed the release for FF Type 0 and released it on the Vita instead.

Yes it's sad to see games like God Eater 2, Shining Blade or Tales of Twin Braves still developped for the PSP. Vita's sales will never take off unless publishers show a little confidence in the system.

FFVII had a 84% drop.

FFVIII had a 89% drop.

FFIX had a 83% drop.

FFX had a 87% drop.

FFX-2 had a 88% drop.

FFXII had a 87% drop.

FXIII had a 87% drop.

FFXIII-2 has a 77% drop.


But all previously listed titles started really huge if I am not mistaken. Taking that into account this drop is still a huge drop, but it looks significantly less because it had bad first week (by FF standards, not a bad week by normal games). 

Yes but why didn't it drop the same as other FF games?

Probably because a lot of people held off before buying it as they were disappointed with FFXIII but now they hear it's a good game and they decide to buy it! If you have a better reason please do tell.


This has to be the most interesting argument I've seen in a while. Desperate angle, but interesting nonetheless Boutrous.

Basically what you are saying is that 10% FF XIII-2 Japanese buyers in the second week made that perchase based on word of mouth.

As my new hubby acevil mentioned, first week was so bad compared to other FF first week sales that the % is slightly greater.

Boutros obviously needs help here.

Hatmoza, if your theory "FFXIII was crap so people don't buy the sequel" is to be believed, shouldn't FFXIII-2 sales have declined even faster? Obviously the diehard fans bought it day 1 or 2, but why did the "disappointed" fans bother going buy it on 2nd week or even at all?

Boutros' theory is the most likely. You have to accept the positiveness of this hold.
