HOLY CRAP! A HANDHELD ISN'T SELLING WELL IN JAPAN (WHERE EVERYONE IS BUYING 3DS'S FOR THE COOL LIBRARY) WHAT A SHAAAAME!
inb4 fanboyism about 3DS selling well.
Anyways, it's to be expected because 1, due to the limited economy not everyone can afford to buy 2 systems, 2, the 3DS came out first and a lot of people bought one, 3, the Vita's release library isn't exactly the best (but still good titles are there and will come). I'm sure when the Vita gets to the US next month sales will pick up.
We should probably merge all of OP's threads into one big report called "I'm going to inform you over and over that I don't like the Vita".
If I'm reading this right, then the PSV sold 42k for this week alone. Better than it did opening week. Someone explain to me how this is bad?
Of course Vita is going to bomb in sales, No FF yet, No Tales of for 19 days, and no Monster Hunter. There are no big selling titles for it as of today.
Also this has no figures for digital sales.
When did Japan start being so impatient over game sales anyway?
It's only bad because "It sold worse then the 3DS, durr, herp".
Uncharted, BlazBlue, Lord of Apocalypse, Shinobido 2, Touch my Katamari. Just you wait till Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, Wipeout and Little Big Planet, Tales on FF and Gravity Rush come out.
Fix'd it for you.
PSV success = released 3 years ago. Other than that, not possible.
Perhaps what you said is true, but it will be a success nevertheless. Remember the PS3 haz no gaemz situation? Well, now it's second on the list from what I'm seeing. Selling better than cure for cancer. Sony knows their consoles are long-term investments, they know what they're doing and they know that there will be profits in the future when the library extends.
The truly concerning number here is not system sales, its that it doesn't have a single game in the top 20.
Attach rate is everything since they're not making money on hardware.
Not trying to be alarmist, but this has to worrying for Sony.
inb4 Vita is hacked just as bad as the PS3.
vita sold about 325000 during it opening week
I forgot about Gravity Rush, that's supposed to be a stellar title. Anyway is LBP even popular in Japan, I know it will sell like hotcakes in the West but I'm just wondering if it is.
In fairness Japan's taste in games is usually pretty terrible when compared to the West.
Outsoold?! Oh noe!
What? This isnt bad, at least its not selling for 8k weekly like the 3ds was at some point. Lol
Honestly i'm impressed with these sales and remember there's no killer games as of now.
Are you forgetting that every game is on PSN?
Well, I don't care, really.
I don't think anybody here can deny that losing Monster Hunter exclusivity was a bad move for Sony.
Sales will pick up eventually, but Sony could have done a lot better with their launch strategy.
Edit: Uncharted didn't chart, lulz.
...I need to do this before someone else gets the brilliant idea!
