I hope Tales of Graces sales prove to Namco that it's worth localizing the games. Heck they don't even need to dub them, just put subs, could probably ask a few die hard tales fans from a Western country to do that for you for free.

Global hardware and Europe software is up! Surely the 3DS sales in Japan are incorrect?

No surprise. VGC is severely undertracking the 3DS as usual, just like any other Nintendo hardware.



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

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Gamers Club

They subtracted the hard-earned 300 Vitas little busters sold as well

Sorry, but there is no way I believe those Hardware WW numbers for the PS3 and 360.
Are they down on last year? Considering Jan and Feb NPD plus the UK video game retail reports there is no doubt, but in my mind there is no way the 360 is down to 109k and PS3 146k this early in the year.

Another strange thing, why is the Wii maintaining sales in March while the HD twins are free falling, when there are solid multiplats coming every week for the systems plus good deals to purchase both while the Wii is stagnant waiting for Xenoblade help?

Another thing that makes little sense to me considering NPD numbers, the PS3 has been outselling the 3ds this year, in Feb the margin was surprisingly large between both (100k). Why did VGC make huge adjustments on PS3 (PS3 was actually 40k behind the 3ds before), just to report first week of march where it beat the 3ds by just 100 units .

Once again, not trying to be a douche or anything, VGC has 100x more data to back those numbers, but in my eyes they will have to make some adjustments on a slow part of the year (not good considering future console releases plus holiday season) when "official" numbers come in.

If those numbers are true, then price drops will not be enough, console revisions have to be announced at E3.



Vita below 50k in April ?

Can someone tell me if there are some bigger titles coming to Vita during April or May ?



Vita means a short biographical sketch. As in a professor's curriculum vitae, which is supposed to show his/her basic credentials and publications (equivalent to a resume). I guess it's ironic because the Vita may have a short life? In other words, why would Sony name their product a Latin word that implies brevity?

Not in Japan, but I guess that won't affect negatively its worldwide numbers by much.

In the west, I believe resistance and mortal kombat should boost the sales something.

Resistance: Burning Skies releases in April, I believe. Mortal Kombat may be releasing in the next couple of months aswell. Will be interesting to see if Resistance can boost hardware sales, seeing as it's the first dual-analog fps on a handheld.
