Forums - Sales Discussion - PS Vita USA 1st week sales - 160,499

Hmm I don't know...this is very hard to predict. I'll just say 115k



Watch this space - counting down to the GOTG soon

Depends on what the shipment is really. I think some people are really under estimating it. You have to keep in mind that first week sales for a console are not a good indication of future sales. The hardcore fans will swarm to a system first week. As really if you are going to buy a system at launch you may as well buy it first week as opposed to a little later. You get a huge wave of titles, price isn't going to change etc.

The weird launch they are doing where the 15th is a soft launch might mess things up. But I will say whatever Sony ship for the first week that the sales for the first week (or 15th + 22nd with their stupid launch) will likely be sold through or vast majority.

So err yea. Whatever their shipment is then 90% or so of that is my guess.

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.

A decent 400K.

120k

125k.

i would say the predictions peaople make are a bit too low, unlike those for Japan which were too high

not sure about USA, i'd say 170k

pretty sure it will be much better in Europe, Europe supports Sony the most, and also, Sony has said and done, PSV ads are in every single match on the Champions League and i think it launches with FIFA 2012, so good marketing in Europe, we will never miss PS ads while watching football  :  P

maaaaaany millions in Europe are now aware of PSV existance just because of that

Well it might not sell through as in totally out of stock a-la Wii or PS2 style... but yeah it will probably sell most of what is shipped.

You should remember though that the shipment is derived from demand... the stores won't let Sony flood their shelves with a million Vitas for the launch, so that first shipment will be based on all sorts of things (pre-ordered figures, various analysts trying to determine demand and Sony's marketing trying to convince stores to buy more)

What's PS VITA?
