Do you really think the Vita will sell more this holiday than Wii U? That's funny :D

Of course the Wii U will outsell Vita by a large margin. It will be the most sold console this christmas for sure.


Well Vitas sales in october and november could help pull the victory.

The wii will have comparable numbers, if the Wii dies hard then it probably will not pass the PS1 in LT sales. So I think the Wii will have good shipment sales. It is hard to choose one, but I think the vita might still pull it off if sales happen to spike.



You mean "who is going to lose least?"

Wii is going to be less of a loser this Christmas. Vita will take last place. Vita has games coming, but Wii is MUCH less expensive and is still a hot item during the Holidays. I don't think Wii U will fully usurp it until next year.

With the argument over the WiiU, it depends on exactly how many WiiU's are willing to send out and honestly, how Sony actually handles the marketing/bundling for the Vita. But I mainly think it will have to do with how well Nintendo stocks their product this year...



Guess what? I still think the Wii is going to take it. Even with the Wii U on the market, the dying Wii is going to have great sales because it's going to be priced cheaper than dirt.

Make sure we bump this thread in January just so I can say "I told you so."

@ Roma:

I should've asked this before I picked the Vita...

Are you talking worldwide or a particular region? Also, what is the "holiday season" window?  When does it begin and end?  Does it start at black friday and last until mid-January, for example.



This is going to offer a great barometer of the Vita's health if the Wii DOES still manage to take the title between those two...or if the fight is even that close, for that matter. I, personally, have no idea. I think the Vita may be able to pull it off, but, who knows? Stranger things have happened. Who knows, maybe the Wii will pull down even better numbers than the WiiU. If the analysts have shown us anything, its that there's almost no way to predict the minds of the Holiday Mobs.



I think the Vita will "win," if only because it actually has a holiday lineup.



Love and tolerate.

Like I said before, neither Vita or Wii gain nothing from this fight.

Why?
If Vita wins, it'll be against a dead system, no merits here.
If Wii wins it will be because Vita had terrible holiday sales. It won't be my its own merits, as it will still be dead.

Whoever wins, it loses.
Wii U vs Vita is more interesting.

Delusional. (notice how the thread title says christmas, though Wii U might outsell it for the whole year aswell)

 

But i do think the Vita migh outsell the Wii this christmas. Granted... neither will sell very well.
