I'm not sure why people expected big things from the Vita in the West anyway.


Because it supposedly had this great "Western" line-up (Uncharted et al) that Sony fanboys pimped like hell in the face of 3DS owners that didn't have shit at the time.

And it was all graphics this, 3G that, and oh yeah 2 analogs stick by the way yatta yatta yatta.

That's why.

The writing is not yet on the wall. Give Vita at least one more holiday season. If it fails by then to make any reasonable sales levels AND the 3DS booms, then it's over imho.

Very strange happenings indeed.

It's gotta make it  there first.

Why are most of you acting surprised? VGC have Vita at 52k for the month, pretty much spot on if <50k means 40-50k.

Sales in the US are just horrible to look at in general though. Hopefully it will improve come the holidays.

Because most people here don't wanna face reality.

You know, it actually scares me to think that there is a chance that the Vita might sell even less than this next month. Especially since Madden 13 (12.5) will be coming out at the end of the month. Of course not unless the sales sustain.

Okay, these might be the numbers based on the NPD PR and of course hints given to us before.

360 - 203K
PS3 - 140K
3DS - 131K
WII - 70K
PSV - 48.5K (average of range endpoints)

Petare even said that these numbers are more reasonable. In fact, these more than accurate than the ones posted before.

PSV <50k?? Wow. And the DS is really holding back the 3DS.
