From several weeks of 3k to this and all we get are doomsayers still?

When Vita turned itself around in Japan that first week, wasn't it heralded as a success? Weren't naysayers quickly berated?

Doom is hitting 3k and staying at 3k or going lower. Doom is not hitting 3k and then steadily climbing to the best selling home console slot for the past several weeks to the point it's only surpassed by the 3DS itself. Does it need to maintain that level to become a success? Yes. Does it need to maintain that level to no longer be doomed? No.

No one is claiming it to be a massive success just because of this but it has shown signs of no longer being doomed. And there is a massive gulf of a difference between massive success and doomed. A console can actually live in between those 2 dichotomous points.

Allow me to be neutral.  Both Vita and WiiU are still performing mediocre at best. 

But I agree, neither is doomed...... in Japan

Exactly. You should also add "In Japan..... for now". Vita should've been doomed but it's getting saved by a surprising decent third party support. Wii U won't have that luxury, I doubt it.  Best selling home console is nothing to tout about when it's the only next gen console available there.


the funniest part is vita still outsold the wiiu by 300k in japan this year.

ktay95 has produced an acceptable amount of doom.

I never thought there would be such a fuss over selling 48k in a single region. Doesn't PS3/360 do this every week of the year?

It was a pretty big fuss around these parts when Vita got a price cut in Japan last year and it got a bumped, so yeah, that's actually the trend.

I even think the Vita bump last year caused an even bigger fuss.

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Still this shit? You really hate the concole, don't you? If it's selling 3000 it's bad, ok, if it's selling 20000, yea, ok, it's bad, if it's selling 50000, is it bad? It must sell 1000000 a week for you to shut up? Go write about anything else and don't bother us here. Play your pshit or assbox zero.


I give you my whole respect! I am with your oppinion mate :)



Zelda - Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch.... Incredable!!!

I also think the Wii U is not doomed in North America.  Now Europe, especially the UK...That's a different story.

Agreed.  It's been doing OK (not doom, not major success) in the North American market.   Europe has been decidely in the doom category all along.

it's behind ps3, and vita YTD in japan, in the UK it's dead, in north america we will know tommorow if it has life.

1. Yes, it's behind them YTD but that's precisely what we're talking about.  Going from 3k per week to a steady increase of more and more every week to now nearly 50k.  None of us are saying it's sudenly going to outsell them both for the year but rather it has done a fantastic job of turning around the poor sales that led to it being behind PS3/Vita YTD.

2. We are talking Japan here.  It's even in the thread title.  And we've all agreed it's long been doomed in the UK.

 Not in japan, and considering Its WiiU the dead console. Also factor in Vita had probably only 3, maybe 4 times these sales (48k+) and vita is the second highest selling platform in japan this year

Vs Vita bump

Yes, that's because Wii U has gradually increased in sales, while Vita got a 2 week bump before going down again.
