Sony Computer Entertainment America has now issued its NPD report response, and as usual the company decided not to mention any actual hardware sales figures, but provided the following quote about the PlayStation ecosystem.

"According to the April NPD, the PlayStation ecosystem continues to grow with exclusive titles such as MLB12: The Show landing in the top 5 SKUs," said Dan Race, Sr. Director of Corporate Communications at SCEA.

"Digital-only software titles, including Journey for PS3 and Escape Plan for PS Vita, helped to further bolster growth. PS Vita is gaining momentum as major new software titles like Mortal Kombat and social applications, such as Skype, saw strong demand with consumers. With E3 around the corner, PlayStation remains laser focused on continuing to deliver the industry's best gaming experiences."

It was revealed earlier today that PS Vita has sold 1.8 million units worldwide.

It seems like 3DS this month may be under 150,000 this month based on how 3DS is tracking against DS through 14 months...


um what? Don't mean to sound like an ass but I have no idea what you are talking about. Nintendo revealed numbers through march, not april



New info from GAF:

"Kid is the best sold handheld game this month, and better than Vita HW.
The new 3DS horror game
Those are awful numbers for the vita and the fatal frame game, did Vita sell less than 100k in April?



                       Thanks Blacksaber for the sig                  Tag:"Nintendo es toda la diversión de esta generación"

Vita must have been really low, unless Kid Icarus did really well.

According to this site Kid Icarus sold 79,450 units in April. Which would mean that the Vita is vastly overtracked here.

On the positive side, Vghchartz undertracked Kid Icarus Last month so the real number could be higher. Guess we'll have to wait for the official numbers to now for sure. I get the feeling that both the 3DS and Vita are way overtracked on this site :(



I'm an advocate for motion controls, Nintendo, and Kicking freaking Toad to the Moon!
