I remember in 2006/2007 how it was an ongoing joke that the long since replaced GBA continually outsold the PS3 which was even more insulting than this comparison.

360 was outsold by older systems (vastly) when it launched. So was PS3. This is nothing surprising. The only valid comparison is how WiiU launched compared to other systems with is: far better than 360/PS3 but not as good as Wii.

However, fanboys and techies will buy up any system early - so I'm waiting until March to really access if the WiiU will be a success or not.

GBA outsold PS3, that was insulting. Yet now PS3, which was humiliated, gets a glorious revenge by outselling WiiU! This is surprising because PS3 is a third place console. Not even the first place console can outsell WiiU!

stop trying to tap dance your way out of a god-awful thread idea.

Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

1 out of 7, impressive.

 

 

Overall, Vita bends over. But please keep taking snapshots. I know two houses nearby, where two families have two vitas and no nintendo product, you should include those two houses into your sample size, lol.

The same thing which has happened to every nintendo console, excluding wii. We europeans aren't that interested in Nintendo.



Finnally ps3  fans got something to say lol

Eh I'm not trying to exit the thread, and I don't see how this is a god-awful thread idea, especially when I was specifically asked to do it by a Nintendo supporter.

lets wait and see shall we.  Vita is overtracked (again!) imo.

Anyway... I'm confused...

Europe:

WiiU launch to now: 415,246

Vita same period: 208,809

I have to say, looking back at sales of Gen 6 consoles during the launch of Gen 7, the difference was much, much larger. If the PS3 could only outsell the Wii U by 59%, it's doing pretty badly.

Of course, if you compare a well-established system with a new system, you'll find that the well-established system will do better. That's a given. It takes time for momentum and supply to both build enough to start selling huge numbers.
