Unless any poll shows the vita at 120% the vita is doomed in Japan..

Face the future.. Gamecenter ID: nikkom_nl (oh no he didn't!!)

That MH4 rumor.


xbox 360 above psp? :O

34.6 million gaming devices were sold in Japan. (360 + PS3 + Wii + 3DS + PS Vita) Not counting PSP, WiiU and DS.
So there are 34.6 million players.

So, 64% means 22.14 million PS Vitas will be sold in Japan in the next 12 months. Seems legit.

Yea these polls are pretty meaningless, surprised at PC being so high on this list as PC gaming is super niche in Japan.

Check out my hype threads: Cyberpunk, and The Witcher 3!
the vita could sure use them, maybe a little high but I think Vita and WiiU will have pretty good years in Japan

A pretty outlandish claim. As DirtyP said above that would be 22,000,000 sales.


Yeah, right.

You no its BS when 360 is at 10.6% in japan
