Everything should go down drastically next week.


How drastically? Throw some figures at me Acevil

First I have to explain that January 1st effects the following days drastically, and that if you want the extremist form of the decline that will happen you need to look at 2009: 

Sales from the following week of that effect.

WII            |    41,243 |   119,965 | 161,208 |  7,640,109

PSP           |    60,495 |   157,088 | 217,583 | 11,575,747

The vita is in real trouble. Reasonable said it is still at launch price. Not true. A huge amount of retailers have already dropped the price of the 3G. Around a 15-20% price drop at most stores. That's pretty considerable.

These sales are already after a bit of a price drop from retailers.

The problem the vita has as well is with the 3DS we knew Nintendo could afford to drop the price. With Sony I'm really not sure they can manage it.

Also with the 3ds we knew that Zelda:OoT, Mario Kart, Mario and Monster hunter were coming and they would help sales massively. For Vita what game is going to help? There are no big titles for months. In fact I can't even think of a big title for the Japanese market this entire year. Anyone think of one?

FFX (if it releases this year)

Last year numbers...

DS: 87,118
PS3: 59,612
Wii: 56,547
PSP: 32,841
360: 3,859
PS2: 2,547

YoY

DS down 91%
PS3 up 25%
Wii down 12%
PSP up 116%
360 down 29%
PS2 down 48%

PS3 and PSP are doing a GREAT yoy job in Japan.


Did you read Acevils post? This week included a popular day of shopping not included in the same week last year, which should theoretically mean they should be down YoY next week?

And thanks for the numbers Acevil!



 

I had thought of FF-X but it has no date at all. FF-X may come this year however it's fairly up in the air. Still nothing at all shown of the game etc. With Square's track record it wouldn't be surprising if the game ended up taking a long time. So for the entire rest of the year the only big title for the Japanese market is one that may not even make it out this year and will be a multiplatform remake?



Turkish says and I'm allowed to quote that: Uncharted 3 and God Of War 3 look better than Unreal Engine 4 games will or the tech demo does. Also the Naughty Dog PS3 ENGINE PLAYS better than the UE4 ENGINE.

Putting numbers in a Y/Y aspect has nothing to do with Acevils post, its just a point of reference.

GrrrrreAT sales! Mario 3DL will surely be the best selling 3D Mario ever!

I would like to see how Vita is holding up against the first weeks of PSP.


Roughly tied this week, next week PSP will be greater. 

After four weeks on sale:
PSP - 482,252
Vita - 482.901

Wow, it looks like the PSP is going to be above the Vita for quite awhile. After the holiday boost is over in next week's numbers all HW should fall. (numbers from the thread above)

3DS    PSP    PSVita
1  374,764  166,074  321,407
2  209,623   81,355   72,479
3  96,463   92,515    42,648
4  61,394   111,194     42,915
5  50,710   55,358
6  42,979   57,383
7  32,910   66,601
8  28,252   71,200




starcraft: "I and every PS3 fanboy alive are waiting for Versus more than FFXIII.
Me since the games were revealed, the fanboys since E3."

Skeeuk: "playstation 3 is the ultimate in gaming acceleration"

Ps vita doing pretty bad.
As expected though, didn't bring anything new to the table.
It's basically the psp, but for this generation.
Console ports for a portable device.

Looks like they'll need the PS3 and PSP to carry them in Japan until a Japanese killer app comes out. I'm hoping western sales for the Vita aren't as poor.

NPD February will show us if the launch was hit or miss

NPD? You must be new here .

Why ?? Vita releases in February in US and Europe and NPD will show us if Vita did good or not in the West (USA)...

There is a Tales game coming in January, if I'm not mistaken.



@ethomaz 'Epic' is not the word I'd use, 'Sad tie' would be more appropiate.
