If the ps4 had the Vita library and the Vita had the ps4 library the Vita would have sold 20m and the ps4 would have flopped even harder then the Wii U. 

Exactly everyone with a brain's point. If the vita was supported by Sony like the PS4, it would have sold much closer to a psp. Sadly they did stupid stuff and jumped ship like the vita was an adopted child no one really wanted. 

Good point but Sony don't have the ips like Nintendo do for major sales in Japan.

MC stopping their numbers is really bad.
Multiple Sheets of data are now useless -_-

And backtracking to Famitsu would take a lot of time

BS. They had what it takes to carry a home and handheld console at the same time and they had the ips. They just gave up on it before anything. Nintendo had to slash the price of the 3ds to get it started. Sony just wasn't willing to make the sacrifices and take the risk. They were too afraid after PS3. 



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

It would suck if Japan became as secretive about the numbers as NA. :(



Signature goes here!

Before price cut, 3ds still sold better than vita. And Pokemon/Animal Crossing/Yokai Watch/Mario Kart/Fire Emblem, Sony IPs are nowhere close to these IP sales in Japan

This will be worst Sony year in Japan from 1995. and its far from sure that this year will even beat 1995.

Probably monster hunter and that's a capcom IP. Worldwide probably piracy helped it.



DON'T WIN ME CHIBI BUDDY DON'T WIN ME.

ANIMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF FRIEND CODE:- 5129 1175 1029. MESSAGE ME.
ANDY MURRAY:- GRAND SLAM WINNER!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

I am still going to post the numbers if available.
Mainly Famitsu and dengeki

Ah, you mean psp sales? Why not psp games sales too? You know what? PSP sold 80 million and the best selling game on psp is Monster Hunter Portable 3rd in Japan. That game sold 4,9 million. For a user base that have 80 million owners, the best selling game is 4,9 mil and only one game can do that number. That is very pathetic, i'd dare to say that.
