    Brilliant to see it doing so well meanwhile noone is buying the overpriced Vita. The charts for games doesn't surprise me either.

    ps3 sold more than psvita? hmm blue dongles must be selling well too.

    actually this topic says that the situation is going to be the same unless the vita sells in US and for a lower price.

    The Vita Mirracle? Are you serious?

    It was obvious that newer hardware will eventually outsell older hardware - it was a matter of time, not mirracles. From now on, the Vita will only climb.

    Look at the current situation - Tales of Innocence R alone was capable of kick-starting Vita sales. Think what'll happen when more A++ titles are released for the system. This is only just the beginning.

    That's not too surprising, doesn't the Vita cost as much or almost as much as a PS3? Especially with the cost of a memory card thrown in?
    That's a pretty hard sale for me personally at least.

    I guess you are right. Calling Vita's sales increase a "miracle" when it clearly coincides with the release of Tales of Innocence R is not trolling.

    I'm starting to dislike valwin threads. A more competent reviewer would say, "3DS goes ahead PSVita sales, but as big entertainment companies they're doing nice, maybe" not "Nintendo owned Sony har har har *drools* ".

    Anyway, good to hear 3DS is doing fine, at least they're not on the deadline for now.

    This topic is about sales, not Valwin. Please refrain from going off-topic.

    Agreed

    This is by far the most tame I've seen a Valwin thread... It's missing the normal douchebaggery and actually includes a decent bit of news. Congrats duder. There may be hope...

    The numbers are looking good and will surely look better as both new handhelds build their resprective libraries. Though I'll never buy either of them.

    I thought the topic was about "3ds continues its reign of terror and psvita pulls a miracle"


    Anyways, Hot Shots Golf is this first Vita title to sell 100k units. MIRACLES!

    You don't seem to understand the situation at hand. Last week sales results showed that the Vita sold worse then the PSP, ranging at 15k or so units. Now it's nearly 20k.

    You say it's a "4k rise", I say it's a 20% increase since the last report. Mostly due to one game.

    I'm talking about 3DS Sales, and the OP comments/opinion about it. I don't see how that was offtopic.

    Anyway, 3DS games are big enough (room space) to fit a lot of content in order to improve game experience, on cheap media. Cartridges were the way to go, but the technology required 15 years ago wasn't cheap enough (Compact Disc Media aside..). I'm happy to own 4 3DS games and they weren't expensive AT ALL..

    Lol so if psvita sold 1k last week and this week 2k, that's a 100% increase. The fact is the raw numbers aren't somthing to be proud of. That said it will increase when good software is available.
