Congrats to the milestone. Will be interesting, if they can hit even 17 millions. As they have no successor lined up, sales aren't cut short. On the other hand they are already pretty low, last year Vita made 700K. Will be a difficult path and take some more time. In any case, 16M are cleared and nobody can take this milestone away. It has beaten the WiiU (a question which was raised earlier this gen, which of the two can beat out the other).

Commendable considering hardships.

This is as far as it goes though..... it probably wont reach 17m.
Number of days to reach 50M from 40M : 198 days
Number of days to reach 60M from 50M : 187 days
Number of days to reach 70M from 60M : 175 days
Number of days to reach 80M from 70M : 190+ days (VGz)

A much better system and games library than many realize. Wish it would have sold more. Too bad the memory cards essentially made it a luxury item. I spent close to $1000 on them...... Compounding the issue of memory card cost, is their durability, which I feel is fair to classify as poor. 2 of my 32gb cards totally died.
Congrats. A few years ago I always said that Wii U would beat the Vita in sales and I admit I was dead wrong. While it is probably on its last legs now, it was a good cult system that unfortunately Sony didn't support more.
