PS Vita continues to miss sales expectations dramatically it sold only 19,000 units last week, barely more than a quarter of what its predecessor managed.

Why won't Sony just admit to screwing up and start making some changes?

I don't know the Famitsu data from the top of my head, but it's possible that the 19k figure is from Famitsu instead of MC. Either way, it's pathetic for the biggest week in the year, when the competition is outselling it about 20:1 without any big releases while the Vita had its last release this year. I'm not even going to mention how embarrassing it is that the PSP is outselling it like that.

Eh, it can't possibly do bad enough to be completely discontinued.

I'm actually still thinking of getting one if only for the ton of PSP exclusives. (And P4G)

Wow, how do Sony fanboys even defend this garbage handheld. Vita can't even outsell the PSP - so sad how weak the Playstation brand is.


Get out.

Go on the Wii U board and find a topic where the word fanboy isn't used. Its impossible.

Yeah I mean it only has more games and costs 1/3 the price of a Vita, really hard to see how it outsells.
