Also, which milestone will be crossed before the 2012 holiday season, and which one after? More specifically, before or after the week ending Jan 5th 2013? (Yes, that week is mostly in 2013, but still posts big numbers especially in Japan).

I think PSV will reach 5 mill before the end of the year, whereas 3DS might not reach 30 mill until the beginning of next year

PSV before 5th Jan, 3DS after.

The PSV only needs 2.3m to get there, 3DS needs 10.8. Without a holiday mega-seller I can't see 3DS making it, but with the holidays boost, COD/AC, and bundling, 2.3m seems doable for the Vita by then.



^^
I see, I went with Both before Jan 5th, but with 3DS being the first. Let's not forget that 3DS sold roughly 8 million consoles in the 2011 holiday quarter alone.



The inevitable adjustments coming for PSV will make it very difficult. Only a massive price cut will enable it to happen for the Vita. 3DS should make it.



I'm not really here!

That was with the help of 3D Land and Kart, these holidays it has no such mega-pusher.



I think it will be close, but with no Mario for 3DS this holiday season I think vita will just about win it. Regardless will keep a close eye on this thread.



Congratz to your first thread - its a fun and interesting one!!

I think it'll be a close call which one reaches it's limit first... It should be PSV reaching 5m first, with CoD and AC coming out - it only needs 2.5m more... The 3DS on the other hand is selling great, and NSMB2 really should boost those sales togather with the XL... Both will reach their milestones before Jan 5th... And PSV will do it first :p that or it's good bye Vita :p



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Lol...Vita will win what excatly with 5 mil units sold worldwide lifetime by Jan 5th.  I am so surprised on how low of an expectation people have of the system.  Earlier, this year many were saying it would surpass the 3DS in sales and now we are being bothered by sales of 5 mil by Jan? o_O  Please give the system at least 6-7mil by that time.  Anyways I do believe Nintendo will have userbase of 30mil by early to mid Jan2013.
 



Vita should win easily



All bow to me the VGChartz current reigning 3DS prediction champion 

 Bet with tbone51: Pokeon X & pokemon Y will not sell more than 8 million in 2013

July 2009 daveJ saidTrue the wii has a large lead now but by 2017 the most likely result will be 1. ps3 2. xbox360 3. wii <-- wii's successor launched in 2011 effectively killing sales of the wii

 2009 daveJ said: The wii will not break the 50% marketshare barrier it will go below the 40% marketshare barrier though in the future. VGChartz members: Impossible, youre an idiot that knows nothing about sales
