Am I the only one around here who remembers Vita doing something like 60k+ last month according to NPD? That would explain shortages, especially if sales are still increased.

That's such a paltry amount that it wouldn't at all explain the situation.

It would if stock was low due to low sales before.

are they only able to produce negative PS Vitas and can't keep up with the extremely high demand of 0?

VGC said 11K, NPD said 56K.

VGC forgot to track BL bundle, they had the game tracked very well.

Except it doesn't appear that they were: the previous shortages were allegedly due to Sony ceasing all shipments for a lengthy period in preparation for the new model they released last month. Even with what would theoretically be pent up demand and a fresh supply of new units, the orders don't appear to be getting made.

Without actual numbers, this means nothing. Last charts they didn't even sell 4k units... And this doesn't mean that you can't find Vitas, I guess. The system will never ever get anywhere near PSP sales.

True it won't get anywhere near PSP numbers. But funnily enough PSV + 3DS won't even reach PSP numbers.

Wait, what?

do you think both platforms will get discontinued next year or something?

No. Vita will reach less than 20million. Maybe 17.5

3DS will Reach less than 65million Lets say 64million.

PSP is still selling, and as we saw with PS2 it will still receive a fairly large shipment to end its days. It will end its days with 83million shipped (More than GBA)

Sony announced exactly a month ago that they are discontinuing the PSP.

64m for the 3DS sounds a bit low, but even if it sells 64m, and vita sells 17m, they'll outsell the Vita.

Obviously.

If you meant PSP, that would not be true. PSP will have shipped north of 82m I believe so they'd need 66m+17m or so or 64m+19m. Still, I think they will outsell PSP combined but it will take some time.

I think the 3DS will easily blow past 64m, but to each his own.

I said that I think it will too, although not that easily. Could end up selling 70-75m
