NPR (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5175151)
The next morning, two of the engineers told us, they fully expected Challenger to blow up at launch ignition. One of the engineers silently prayed during the countdown. At liftoff, with no explosion, he began to wonder whether he'd been wrong. The relief didn't last.


LuminescentRule: "Everything is fine, guys! It's all within expectations!"


I'll let you discover why your analogy is stupid.


Media Create Sales: Week 51, 2012 (Dec 17 - Dec 23)

|System | This Week | Last Week | Last Year | YTD | Last YTD | LTD |
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| 3DS | 411.272 | 319.025 | 482.200 | 5.247.532 | 4.084.190 | 9.529.675 |
| WIU | 122.843 | 126.916 | | 557.901 | | 557.901 |
| PSP | 65.859 | 33.002 | 101.121 | 857.713 | 2.016.406 | 19.587.097 |
| PS3 | 47.626 | 42.976 | 75.943 | 1.170.477 | 1.481.696 | 8.806.862 |
| PSV | 21.266 | 14.446 | 72.479 | 670.347 | 397.338 | 1.110.333 |

Is this why?


What does that have to do with Sony's expectations?

If this was all within expectations, that means they expected this disaster.
One year later, still being outsold by its predecessor. Rather badly. Outsold almost 8:1 by its competition in 2012.

Just because Kaz Hirai expected Vita bomba doesn't make Vita sales magically good.

......But it clearly says "low end of expectations" not " within expectations".


This.

Also, it's interesting that Sony expected it to flop while their dedicated are still having trouble wrapping their minds around it.


Oh, hey you! It's nice to see you going around and having peaceful discussion.

Does that mean that Lamborghini sales are a disaster? I mean it's getting outsold by a large margin by Toyota cars.

I don't think Kaz's statement was limited to Japanese sales only.

Comparing the Vita to a Lamborghini is just down right stupid. Even Sony can admit its doing bad but the blind fanboys on here can't. News flash genius but for Sony is not going to down right say its a huge failure when they to restore investor confidence. To admit as much as he did is saying a lot.

Well, duh. They did lower said expectations. More than once, in fact. Easy to hit a goal if you move it to your advantage.

not to mention to no one expected the 3DS to explode like that because of animal crossing, and kaz expectations was just for the vita sales, not for vita compared to 3ds.

This is 3DS selling at $250 two weeks before the price drop:

Media Create Sales: Week 30, 2011 (Jul 25 - Jul 31)
|System | This Week | Last Week | Last Year | YTD | LTD |
| 3DS | 16.415 | 31.826 | 1.306.156 |1.306.156 |


This is Vita selling at $250 on Christmas week:

Media Create Sales: Week 51, 2012 (Dec 17 - Dec 23)
|System | This Week | Last Week | Last Year | YTD | Last YTD | LTD |
| PSV | 21.266 | 14.446 | 72.479 | 670.347 | 397.338 | 1.110.333 |


You might notice that the 3DS LTD at that point, all at $250, after less than a year on the market, was higher than the Vita's current LTD, which has been over a year, at the same pricepoint.

Get a better analogy. Yours is truly stupid.

I usually get called a troll or hater around this forum, and have called Lumes, Goon and other Sony fanboys or kissing up to Sony on many occasions...

Within expectations = bad? What does below expectations mean then?
