That is embarrassing.

I haven't even read the topic, and I'm sure there are a ton of people still trying to reassure themselves. The Vita is dead.

Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!

so much for needing the PS4.

This number is terrible because it was Vita's first holiday sales. Black Friday is the time people usually buy Christmas gifts and whatnot. 160k Vita sales will be the peak in the entirely of this year.

everyone please use the report feature, steps to report

click on message detail -> select "trolling" -> add comment if wanted -> click submit.

kthx

that only works if mods of their job, which they don't ever.


If they did their jobs you would be banned again.

Back on topic. So this was only Black Friday? That's an impressive amount.


No if they did their job I'd never be modded because I wouldn't have to deal with trolls and get sick o their bs and say the truth which in that case is considered flaming.

No if they did their job I'd always be modded because I would have to deal with reassuring my purchase and get sick of the low sales and people saying the truth which in that case is considered flaming.


fixed it for you!

In comparion, the 3DS sold 250k. Looks like the 3DS isn't doing that great in the US.


This is what surprised me the most, I was expecting a lot more. I can't understand how 160k is a flop and 250k is an amazing success for some people here


The 3ds sold 795k its first black Friday last year, this year nearly everyone has a 3ds, but hardly anyone had a vita. With the vita selling only 160k, that's pitiful, no matter how you want to spin it, when the 3ds and ds sold more one again, with already a huge market share


I don't really disagree with you but isn't it that the VITA is much lesser know than the 3DS?


only because of advertising. I think if Sony actually made some ads, the Vita could do decent.


You act like they havent been doing so. I have been seeing a lot more advertisements for CoD and AC for the Vita on television.

160k on the biggest shopping week is not impressive, especially for a first year console. If it carries into next year, then there is a trend. This little boost isnt going to help to stop the bleeding when most of those sales, if they arent shipping numbers, were on a discount.

I understand why the 360 outsold the PS3 and the 3DS outsold the Vita on Black Friday (since this is US sales), but I do not understand how the DS outsold the Vita on Black Friday too. Why would anyone still get it when they can just get a 3DS and play both 3DS and DS games?

The strangest thing is that the DS even outsold the 3DS. There must have been some killer bundle available.

Did they give away original ds at the door or something?I don't see how it's possible that ds outsold anything, even vita tbqh.

ugh...that deal with the assassin's creed vita, PS all stars, and 3 months of playstation + for $180 was just too good of a deal. WHY DIDN'T I BUY IT?!

should have made a reassurance topic or something when i saw it, but i convinced myself i didn't need a vita after buying a wii u. =/
