And i quote

"Software sales dipped, too. Combined sales of PSP and Vita games were 5.8 million - that's less than PSP's sole total of 6.6 million for the same period last year."

So vita software cannot outsell the PSP last year, which was on its last legs. And i though vita has a stronger launch software line-up than the PSP.

I must ask why keep posting these kinds of news, we know the Vita isn't selling well overall,
so anyone with a brain will expect lower software sales.

Are you trying to instigate the Vita owners on this board? Cause I see no other purpose to posts like these.

In other news 1 + 1 = 2.

PSP AND the Vita are selling 0.8m less than just the PSP last year. In other words, the entire Vita sales are 0.8 less that the PSP's drop from last year to this year.

You'd expect a system to outself its 6 year old predecessor's last year sales, but the sales are so bad, it doesn't even beat them if you add the predecessor's sales this year to it.

Edit: just noticed it's SW and not HW, but the point stands.

Sales is trolling! Numbers are trolling! Haters are running around? Better get a thicker skin!
