Lol China. Sorry to break it to you guys, but the Vita is going to sell next to nothing there as well.

This is a pretty pathetic battle to begin with, but if anything WiiU should at the very least be able to beat Vita. It's sales are much higher, but I'll admit it has already taken a much longer time than I would like.

I think everyone thought it would happen before 2015 but now thats not gonna happen it seems. Post holiday sales should be interesting. I honestly expect the Wii U to overtake it in Q1 at some point but all thats needed is an uptick in Vita's japanese sales (which is very possible), and its baseline will be higher the Wii U WW meaning that things may remain as they are for another year at least.

Still, it will easily surpass the Vita in its lifetime.

It will pass the Vita by next christmas, lifetime will be determined by whether the Vita continues to grow in Japan, how long each repective console lasts (my bet is that Vita will last longer) and whether the Wii U has already peaked.

If I had to place a bet, I would put it on the WIi U but I don't think its garunteed. Both systems LT could be 15m-20m.



Seems legit.

Well true. If Sony doesn't put out another handheld, and supports the Vita for another 5 years it may pull some numbers just out of sheer length of time on the market. As far as Wii U, Zelda U hasn't dropped yet so I would be surprised if it has hit it's peak. Even if it has, it could easily still sell nearly as many consoles with another $50 price cut and the 2015 lineup. All it really needs to do is keep having these surges of popularity you see from great games which I think we'll see when Splatoon hits, Xenoblade Chronicles X hits, Zelda U hits, and Star Fox hits. And that's if they don't have anything jaw dropping at E3 next year. I wouldn't be surprised to see a small price cut in the summer. 



I honestly didn't even realize the Vita was still ahead.

I know right! Pretty crazy considering how badly the Vita's selling. Oh well, the Vita will get passed soon enough.



You do realize the Wii U will be on the market longer than the Vita?

Well then that goes all hopes that the Vita will outsell Wii U lifetime.
