psp total sales = 15M by 3rd quarter 2005.

What is vita total sales now? 3M? 4M? It is like 1/3 of the sales of the PSP after 1 year. Didn't Xmas help?

The link there shows that those are the shipped numbers and notes that the actual number sold is far less than that.


It would pretty much have to be, too, 15 mil in 3 quarters would be like the best sales of all time. Even 3DS was nowhere near that.

The 3DS seems to be doing well despite that.

Exactly but your missing the point. Not everyone is fortunate to afford a 250 console plus proprietary memory which adds another hidden charge.

3DS is ready to play out the box for 180.

You tell me what's more practical in this scenario?

But units sold is better than units shipped. Oh snap, looks like you messed up your ponydrone routine. ;)
