That is an impressive number. Even adding up the 3DS numbers it doesn't match that! Very nice

Vita sales didn't see the much anticipated drop off this week after all then? In fact it actually (Indisputably this time) outsold the 3DS for the first time. That's quite impressive, even moreso sales of Soul Sacrifice... even if it was somewhat ironically denied the number one spot by a PS3 port of a Vita game, although combined SKU sales were above the number one title at least. Wii U continues to die a slow death in the region though, with sales back under the 10k bar with nothing on the horizon to save it.

Yay, nice to see it didn't drop down again. Go Vita, go! Can't wait for Soul Sacrifice, I just hope that EU and US players will be able to play together.

Two big name games and a price cut on the psv vs no new games on the 3ds and only barely sold better. Nah. Ill wait till the end of the month and the vita sales will be back down
PrometheusFan's avatar
Counting the days, eh? Obviously sales will slide back down, but I think it'll be a lot longer than just the end of March before sales are back in the toilet at Wii U levels... if indeed Vita sales actually DO hit such lows again. Could very well stabilise at a higher average when the dust settles.

It shouldn't go that low. Since It's had a price drop. But once the games drop off. (which seems to be after next week when One Piece releases.) we'll see a sudden change.

Won't last long, end of the month Luigi will put Nintendo back on top, guaranteed.

Luigi's mansion was a really good original game, I would prefer a new Starfox game though to be honest

I would like a new Starfox, but only if it's up to the standard of Lylat Wars, the Gamecube games were pretty dire in comparison. I'd also like a new F-Zerp, or failing that a HD remake of GX.

I liked Starfox Adventures, the second one was awful.

Adventures was a fine game, but it wasn't a proper Starfox game and they shouldn't have tried to make it one, just left it as Dinosaur Planet, as Rare originally intended.
