    You may think "Well this in the EOF so it's obviously not true." It fucking is.

    For the week of March 10th, the Vita has beaten the 3DS on the Japanese sales charts. Get mad, bitches.

    This comes from a combination of the recent price cut to the system and a slew of new software such as Soul Sacrifice (hitting overseas in April) and Tales of Hearts R (hitting overseas probably never).

    The Vita clocked in last week at number two behind the 3DS, but has since overtaken it.

    I agree, this actually is news - previous sales were abyssmal. This isn't a "PSVita STILL sells badly" thread - here the situation actually changed.

    Not in particular, it's nice that it sells but yeah, "sales".

    What I meant was that repeatedly posting that a situation doesn't change is not posting "news" - if we know about something, it can't be classified as "news". This is news because the situation changed.

    I just hope that they can keep up the sales wave - the more units out there the higher the chances that the developers will get interested in the platform and start making games and apps.

    Soul Sacrifice does sound pretty good which accounts for some units being shifted...but..

    im sorry but if you said vita to a female person... or the honnies as on the street. their will think that is a food which helps you lose weight. BUT now we come to the 3DS, ah yes the female person... or the honnies as on the street as we came to the conclusion before, will know what you are talking about. if you want to reproduce any time soon, 3DS is the way to go my friend.

    I'm just saying that the 3DS might catch up again at the end of the week.
