Unless you have official sources the Vita didn't pass anything. Looking at the software sales there's no way this ever came close to even 16M sales.

So you believe the Vita software sales on VGC but not the Vita hardware sales on VGC? That is... very selective. Whatever support your argument, I guess.

Or do you have official sources about the total Vita software sales?

nah... it's overtracked on this site by a good large amount

Do you think the Wii u has sold more?

 

To the others saying Sony should have supported it more I disagree. Full Sony support including them pushing for better 3rd party support and a cheaper vita slim could probably have pushed 30m sales max. Not worth it when they could put that all into ps4 to help it dominate a much more lucrative market for them. 



MAU...ST impressive Sony! 

Crazy that last of us outsold the Vita lol

30m is double as much, that is not worthwhile? And brands need consideration. With the PS3 Sony built with hard sweat the image, that even if they start off on the wrong foot they are supporting their machine no matter what. And that brand image is extremely valuable, as is reinforces early adopters, so you get good launch numbers and start off with a good momentum. If your brand image includes, that you abandon ship, if things go unfortunately, customers may be more reluctant and implement a wait and see stance. Insofar the missing support is damaging the brand image for Playstation Sony built with the great support of the PS3. Overall this may be only cracks, but these open the way to shatter the brand image in the next misstep. So sorry, it is valuable for a company even supporting a failing product.

Why you will not convince me I have chosen bad consoles. / awesome Miiverse art / my greatest games list

Bet with platformmaster918 and ethomaz about PS3 overtaking Wii in total sales.

Predictions: Switch / Switch / Switch / MHWorld / GOW > BOTW / Switch vs. XB1 in the US

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.

what ever you do, don't splash out and get a 64gb version like I did... they're even more temperamental and it seems if the system is moved (helpful for a portable device) my vita wants to rebuild the database of the card 2-3 times and threaten to end it all each time I want to use it.

The Vita is a great machine... but my God was it handled poorly for all the potential it had to be another 80million seller like the psp was.

That said... the vita was sacrificed to make the ps4 what it is today really... so it's a double edged sword the death of the Vita.

Indeed. Due to the issues I had with my 32gb cards, I became aware of the 64gb card's reputation while troubleshooting online. I appreciate the heads up all the same.
