As YOY sales of the Playstation Vita begin to drop into unforseen levels and with the absolute lack or interest for that matter of Sony themselves in developing any significant software for the platform, the question now to be asked is "will PS Vita manage to pass ltd numbers of the Sega Gamegear"?
At first this could have been taken as a joke, but with the lack of dedication from strong first party titles, and for the most part 3rd party nowhere to be seen(in the West for the most part), will indies alone help the Vita pass this milestone or will it fall short?
If Vita continues the trend of 70% sell through for each following year:
January 5th 2013 Vita had 4.3 mill in sales.
January 4th 2014 Vita had 7.2 mill in sales.
January 3rd 2015 9.5 mill sold (at current drop rate)
Januray 2nd 2016 10.97 mill sold (at current drop rate)
The question obviously will be whether Sony will discontinue the Vita prior to January of 2016 (if it continues to sell at this rate) therefore causing the Vita to rank lower in sales than the GameGear. Thoughts?
