The DS and PSP gen did so well with a total of 230.04mil units and counting....

This gen with 3DS and Vita are fresh and will both continue to grow but to how far?

Put your estimates of the DS, PSP and their Total.

Also do one 3DS and PSV then their total LifeTime....

I'd have to say that the max possible would be 120 million. 3DS won't sell at much as the DS for sure but around the same as the Advance was to the GB. So 3DS should sell around 100mil LT (65% of DS numbers), less if the mobile market has that great of an impact.

Unless Vita can get some godly app, 20mil LT as support fades after 2 years.

 Nintendopie  Was obviously right and I was obviously wrong. I will forever be a lesser being than them. (6/16/13)

Nintendo 3DS: 90-105 million

Playstation Vita: 35-50 million


Can't wait until I'm 30 years old and finally get to know how accurate my prediction is.



Me is
★Vita→35mil
☆3DS→135mil :P

I believe the 3DS will stay a year longer than DS b4 a successor comes along! If they get the right games you never know!

ps4 85mill
x720 85mill
wiiU 75mill
3ds 110mill
psv 50mill

In total, it'll sell less than the DS did.
So... that means 3DS should do around 100 Million (give or take, you never know with Nintendo.) and PSV should do about 30 Million.

I'm not going to give you my predictions of last year; I didn't make any.
