PSP was even destroying DS in its 1st year on market...just putting it out there. And then what happened to DS? Where is now?

So you expect Nintendo to make games for the PSV? Sure, why not.

No, better. I expect Activision to make games for PSV. IW/Treyarch, to be more precise

Those games don't have the HD twin trends on the Vita, so what is your expectation?

Look who's at the bottom of that list.

First off, PSP's multiplayer abilities were poor at best. Not to mention it was almost impossible to play a propper FPS game on a PSP. Easy fluid controlls and multiplayer are 2 top reasons why COD is so popular. PSP lacks both. VITA lacks nether with upgraded multiplayer and both analog sticks

Second, even if we pretend that piracy on PSP wasnt insanely high due to CF, all those released COD titles were of medicore quality at best when compared of those like COD4 and BO or any other COD game

COD only started getting huge in 2009 with the release of MW2, (COD4 sales were excelent, but nothing to write home about) and that was after COD franchise and almost all other mainstream developers moved passed by PSP, as you can see from your own chart...All CODs that sold 10m+ were released in or after 2009

Great post. You should update it weekly.

I will keep the records and will update now and then.

Whats your view on this?  Sony like to use the word momentum... Vita has none at the moment.

It would also be interesting to see the gap with 3DS in another graph.

3DS now included

Wow, 3DS really was selling poorly before the price cut...

...I suppose the Vita is besting the 3DS in that regard ;)


Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

I don't think we need this thread anymore. We all know what kind of curve we can expect.

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

Why not include DS to get everything, and get an idea of how well PSV/PSP are doing compared to 3DS/DS. Is everyone being overshot by the DS?

What is with all the hate? Don't read GamrReview Articles. Contact me to ADD games to the Database

Looks like Europe's gonna need to carry Vita for the first year lol.

Pretty dismal looking graph in Japan and USA isn't great. Tis a shame, but its more a marathon then a race, at least.

Good job with these :D hopefully u can keep updating them

I can't wait for COD VITA to be released and see the "spike" in the graph it will cause

MikeB predicts that the PS3 will sell about 140 million units by the end of 2016 and triple the amount of 360s in the long run.

Why would anybody buy a CoD game for the Vita to play multiplayer when you can get a PS3/360 version for $10.00 more. You need to be home to play both version why not get the version where you can play on a bigger screen?

This coming from me a BIG CoD fan.
