Vita sales are massively undertracked as we know that there are an awful lot more digital sales on the system than you normally get on a console. Wasn't there something from Sony that said as much as 50% of software sales on Vita are digital?

I wonder how many sales Gravity Rush and Uncharted haven't registered due to them being claimed via PS+.

Also 3DS might have 16 500k sellers, are any of them also on Vita? It's generally a common consensus that while the Vita has great games, it doesn't have enough "big" exclusives. It would be interesting to see accurate sales for the multi format 3DS/Vita releases.

There are quite a few Vita titles have sold better than their 3DS counterparts despite the much smaller userbase. Surely at 40m to 6m using extrapolation a 3DS game selling 500k is the equivalent of a Vita game selling 75k on a sales to users ratio.

I know it's worse, but then again - every single Vita game would be worse on 3DS, cause the console is inferior. There is no way around it. Vita is often able to keep up with PS360 (not all the time obviously), but a 3DS version would always be far inferior and the sales just don't justify putting much more effort and money into 3DS games. It's 1st party that sales, both on 3DS and Wii U. In fact I'm sure had RE:R release on Vita the same day it released on 3DS, it would sell better there.

LOL...that's funny because the best selling game on the Vita so far is Uncharted: GA and it barely managed to scrape 1 mil in sales!!! Uncharted scraping for less than 1mil in sales despite price-cuts and being one of the best known Sony franchise ON THE VITA A SONY SYSTEM THAT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE MUCH MORE SUPERIOR TO IT"S COMPETITOR!!!  While RE:R  a third party title (non-Sony title) sold 750K units on the 3DS and Capcom still bitched about it(true story)!!! IF it was released on the Vita then I'd hate to see the whinning Capcom would have done with those possible sales.  AC:III Liberation barely sold the same amount of units despite a massive marketing campaign and being bundled with the Vita's for it's second Christmas holiday!!!


I see nothing funny with what I've said. I guess you should read it again carefully, cause you probably didn't get what I've written. I'm not saying it would sell more than 750k on Vita. I'm saying RE:R being a multiplat would sell better on Vita than on 3DS. The Vita sales would obviously eat into the 3DS sales, so they wouldn't come close to 750k, thus would be possible to beat on Vita.

Also there are 3 3rd party games that sold 500k+ on Vita, as you can easily put Persona 4G there, since it's just a few retail copies below, but easily made the jump thanks to digital sales. And there are only 13 3rd party games on 3DS (where did you get 16 from!?) And it's a fact that 3rd parties don't sell on 3DS. First of all - compare the hardware base and suddenly that 13 doesn't look that awesome and remember that one of those games is MH, which is strong enough that it manages to sell despite being on a Nintendo console. Also the other games are some of the biggest franchises in history, like Dragon Quest (2 games), Kingdom Hearts, Resident Evil or Cooking Mamma ;) Other 3rd parties that aren't huge franchises and managed to make it past the 500k level just barely managed to make it so yeah, it's not that rosey.

3DS is ahead in this department not because it's so good, but because Vita is so bad and Sony is, hopefully, yet to do something about it.

 

@MohammadBadir - cool. Now compare them to GR.


I could easily claim the digital sales of the 3DS as well but since it's not track than it's a moot point.  I don't think Vita and 3DS sales would eat into each other due to the fact that Vita is only supported by the Sony fanbase (looking at the low sales of both hardware and software) and not overall attractive to the avarage handheld gamer.  Seriously now you guys are saying that the userbase now matters?  So then even if a game sells to 1/8 of the user base of the 3DS it would still be twice the amount it would sell compared to 3/4 the user base found on the Vita to match that!!!  Now that's quite pathetic in my opinion as no game even Mario/LoZ/GoW would sell to 3/4 of a hardware's userbase!!  Digitals sales do count but since we can't track them it shouldn't count.  Otherwise 3DS sales would even be much more than what the Vita already has!!!

How can anyone prefer to play Vita games on 3DS!? It's such an inferior device. The screen, controls, graphics - they would make all these games look so much worse. And Gravity Rush on 3DS would look sexy? You must be kidding me! A fully 3D open world game would look just awful on 3DS, it just isn't powerful enough to run it.

there are fully 3D open world games on the original DS.


Shhh, folk ain't trying to that.

Half joking, but really the closest things the 3DS has to a ploygonal 3D open world game right now would be Lego City and technically I think Animal Crossing counts.

I think your reply is MASSIVELY EXAGGERATED...why is it that when Sony sales are involved they are undertracked while Microsoft and Nintendo sales are overtracked.  For now we'll stick with what they are ok? As for your 50% digtal sales...it's actually much lower than that; Sony said at MOST it was 1/3 and that was a mock survey that the Sony did themselves (hmm...maybe a little EXAGGERATION on their part) .  Anyways, if Vita software sales are undertracked so are 3DS's as Nintendo's Digital Software sales have been on a tear lately!!!

# of 3rd party software sales of 250K or more (I was going to go for 400K but it wasn't looking fair):

3DS: 50+ I stopped counting as it was getting kinda sad for Vita
PSV: 9

myth that 3rd party sales are better on Vita than 3DS just got debunked!!!



Around the Network

The mentioned games would only do well on 3DS if they were renamed;

Super Mario Persona 4
Super Mario's Crown
Little Mario Story
Mario: Rebirth
Marionarium
Sly Super Mario

Otherwise they would flop pretty hard.

;)



Monster Hunter 4, it left Vita and came to 3DS and in Japan has sold better than the Vita's total sales.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Let me say this again. You have numerous games from big franchises there. Games and franchises that never came to PSV and that would sell on any single platform. Phoenix Wright, PES, Bravely Default, Dragon Ball, Layton, SMT4, Final Fantasy, Skylanders, Resident Evil, Tom Clancy, etc. All these games are between 250k and 500k. It's really not a huge achievement to sell these numbers of these franchises when you have 35 mil consoles out there. It really isn't all that impressive and it's not debunking any myth. It would be if 3rd party games were selling  some really nice numbers (I'm talking at least 1 mil+) instead of barely getting any kind of a profit.



Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

Can you provide evidence of these sales from somewhere other than VG Chartz? The most recent VITA/3DS multi format release isn't even listed for Vita at VG Chartz when it's most likely the Vita version sold better than the 3DS version which is currently listed at 10,000 sales.

Got to give Vita loyalists props. They always keep fighting.
