finally .. vita sales is no longer an embarassment ...

and it almost caught up to the 3DS in japan.

I think this pretty much shows that a price drop is necessary. Only if Sony will do it in the US and the rest of the world, then Vita may still have a chance.

Look at WiiU .. i guess that is the new flop in Japan.

So, does Japan matter now?

Sweet. I look forward to your thought-provoking topics on the Wii U board.

Will get even better once their games start flowing regularly... It's still quite dire on releases atm.

1 week of mediocre sales due to a price cut is hardly impressive....

Sadly this, sales will go down soon. They will probably be better than it was before the cut, but hardly competitive.

Why not? Selling 62k vs 3DS 77k is certainly NOT flopping, most reasonable person will agree.

Now, of course this does not guarantee the vita won't drop back down in the future. But as of now, it is not flopping, for this week, in Japan.
