I don't understand why people think 100k on platform barely breaking 3mil users is bad?

One word: multiplayer. That is all.


No...
Its because more people had PS3/PC/Xbox360 than vita.

VGChartz, eh? But just the fact that the AC bundle is on the Amazon top 100 video game best sellers is good. Wasn't expecting that.


VGChartz might not be the best for credibility but they have elements of truth. See UMVC3. People were talking about it selling badly yet Capcom continued to deny it only to come out and say it didn't perform. Also see Mass Effect 2 PS3 hard copies which EA confirmed were not the source of it's sales.

If they say it is selling badly then it is. The only thing that can turn it around is if the digital sales are better.

I'm just saying 100k/3mil isn't that bad of a number.

nice. i predict declassified to do just as good if not better


IGN will make sure that **** doesn't happen, they're already getting their comparison review ready between COD Vita and COD PS3.

that's some solid numbers, if it included bundles and digital sales it would be a lot more. Hopefully this will make other developers see that best way to succeed on vita is making original content from their most popular franchises, sh1tty efforts and lame ports won't cut it for high sales.

Japan doesn't matter. Until it does. Which will be right before it doesn't.

I know I'm buying all my Vita games digitally, wish they would release those numbers too.

Who think it is bad? I don't think it is bad. In fact, the article said it is a solid start, and i agree.

And it will sell *some* systems. The question is whether the lift is meaningful.
