Gamescom is on its way and there's definite solid news surrounding the Vita which is in time for the holidays as well as Wii U's launch. That may be what Sony's strategy to possibly spoil Wii U's launch.

Like they can really do that with Vita news...

Update on that chart I posted, Gamecube is slightly above the 360.

Well, I'm certainly hopeful. E3 oddly lacked Vita news. I'm sure Gamescom will have news of releases that will coincide with Wii U's launch.
I'm merely considering the most strategic business move Sony would do in why they would withhold Vita news at E3, which would be to plan releases around Wii U's launch.



This xmas is make or break for the vita. I hope COD is successful as peo[lple hope



aren't the numbers better than we could expect after vgc numbers? or am i wrong?

sure sales are bad but we knew the weekly vgc numbers already.

You never know though because Nintendo could have something REALLY big planned that will ruin Sony's plan for the Vita because companies do that a lot where they try to pit their console's news against the rival company's handheld news. O_o



PSP numbers are in... less than 15k. Just as VGChartz says.

That is the "aceptable" number. Becaus there's no way to change it, you have to accept it!


So we got 60k for the "Ecosystem"... hmm. COD and Ass Creed have MAJOR responsibility.

Vita numbers seem to be the same as what vgchartz had so it shouldn't surprise people.

I think some people thought VGChartz was undertracking it. 

Surely not the ones who are calling doom here though.

Hmm. I hadn't thought of it in that way. I suppose it could go either way. Great point.
