Forums - Sales Discussion - One week until the Switch passes the Vita

15.9m vs 16.0m on the front page right now. How will you celebrate the occasion? Pop a cork for the Switch, pour one out for the poor Vita, or both?

What is VGChartz "estimate" ? And how do we know that either are a close enough estimate ? Could go in all sorts of ways ...

Scenario #1: Switch has already passed the Vita and it's overtracked
Scenario #2: The Switch is overtracked and it will pass the Vita later on
Scenario #3: Both are overtracked and it's undetermined which is ahead

Why are you on this site if you're going to object to the estimates?



When was the last time Sony officially published Vita numbers?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I actually don't know that. Probably around the time Microsoft gave us the official Xbox One numbers.

Nice, next milestone will be GameCube sometime in summer.



I think Nintendo have already released more AAA games for the Switch than Sony did for the Vita already.

They pushed the Vita out the door and shot it in the head on its way out the yard.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

I really do not mean to troll when I say this but this is a big reason why I am surprised it outsold Wii U. I gueds that is some achievement. 

 

@OP I will poor out a nice cold Root Beer and pinch in some vanilla ice cream to celebrate the Vita. You were so expensive I could never buy you. But no matter what anyone says there is one thing that can never be taken away from you. Vita means life.

Well, the numbers on the site aren't infallible, and in fact when the numbers were more up-to-date complaining about their accuracy was the favourite pastime of the site!



Since when did we start to create these kind of threads where we celebrate occasions that haven't happened yet?
