3DS sold 28.252 in the 8th week... Vita sales is not so bad.

Remember guys Vita have a high price compared the others portable.

it is true

Vita is relatively expensive with almost no games

people are probably waiting for a price cut, but Sony has to announce a system seller soon enough

Then again the more Ialso think they're dull as tools so it goes both ways...

One thing is for sure is that the 3DS' original pricepoint is either the biggest presumption (stupidity) or the most incredible move we've seen in the industry. Both are likely.

Stupidity is to assume that the masterplan of a company includes running their business at a significant loss.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Hopefully a Monster Hunter game will be announced for Vita soon. 


I've seen this statement a lot on most major video game sites. If it's that plainly obvious that a Monster Hunter game is the salvation of the Vita, then Sony must be really stupid to not have persued a MH game.

If they did but failed to make it happen, then the Vita will be on vitasupport for a very long time.

Either way, I plan on getting a Vita after its price drop just for Uncharted.



Vita needs Monster Hunter.

I think that people here in the west do not give the Japanese people enough credit. They got burned last year overspending for a system that would be 10K Y cheaper in 6 months, I don't think many early adopters are willing to go down the same road again.

This is also a very valid point.

Costumers are not stupid, they saw 3DS getting very cheap very fast, the may be expecting the same for Vita.

The flipside is that this point is setting up the PSV to match, if not exceed, weekly 3DS numbers after its first price cut.

lulz at psv getting a price cut any time soon.  nintendo had room to breath with the 3DS, sony does not.   even less after the recent financials...  at this point if sales continue to flounder it will probably be cheaper for sony to leave the market then to offer a price cut.

See everytime someone says something like this, it makes me think Nintendo planned every move from the start. Like a very bad but brilliant chess game, where Nintendo offers the queen up randomly. 

and with that I would say...well played Nintendo!!! Sony with it's current financial woes will seem unlikely to cut the Vita's price anytime soon!



Vita sales are lower than 3DS at the same week but you have to consider that 3DS didn't have new competition at that time.



One thing to note: the 3ds still expensive for a handheld. When ds launched it was expensive for a handheld at $150. The only reason Ninty got away with that is because their competitor released a handheld at $250. This 'price cut' enables the the 3ds to look like a steal with no competitors on the market, but it's really not.

Yeah, I remember when good old days when Gba would launched at $99. It's sad now :(

horrible sales ... une catastrophe

C'est pas si mal. Tandis que les autres chuttent de semaine en semaine, la Vita est au moins restée à un niveau juste.

Stupidity is to deny that the masterplan of a company includes running their business at a significant loss on the short-term while trouncing the competition, and ensuring total domination for the extent of the generation.

Fixed.
