I find it hard to believe a Gamestop would even bother stocking 8 Vitas. That's probably enough to last 2 weeks.

Let's find out!

Unfortunately, I have to use VGChartz for this. Not the most accurate of websites, but until we get January NPD numbers, it's the only way. You should also note that some numbers may seem a few decimal places off - this is because my calculator can store about 30 digits, but it's only practical to write 5-or-so.

Last week's Vita sales for North America were 6,353 units.

There are 6,627 GameStop stores located in the United States and Canada, meaning that if GameStop was the only location selling Vitas, each store would sell about 1 Vita every 0.959 weeks, meaning about 1 Vita is sold every 7.302 days.

If we were to multiply TC's figure of 8 Vitas by 7.302 days-per-Vita, we can calculate that it should take the average hypothetical monopolistic GameStop about 58.415 days to sell 8 Vitas.

Assuming it took TC 1 hour to woo his 8 customers into buying Vitas, he would have sold the Vita at an average rate of 1 Vita every 7.5 minutes, beating our average hypothetical monopolistic GameStop by a factor of 1,401.966.

From this, we can conclude two things:

1) QuagsireQing's estimate of 2 months was the most accurate.

2) If TC is not lying his arse off (which he most certainly is), he most definitely deserves that raise.

And this was just my morning shift!

A group of friends came in, wanting to buy 3DSes so they could play Mario Kart 7 together. However, one of them saw the Vita demo unit and became interested. I then proceeded to show them what a real Vita was truly capable of. Needless to say, they were thouroughly convinced. 8 peeople walked out of Gamestop happy with their Vita purchases and a new copy of Modnation Racers: Road Trip.

Can't wait to see how this goes after my lunch break.


you are why i hate gamestop. i hate it when i know what i want to buy and they say "oh this game or system is better"
