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?


That's not "catching up". That's "matching (almost) 3DS sales for a week (so far)"

Catching up would involve making up the nine-million unit deficit, and they'd have to significantly outsell the 3DS for about a year to do that. We're talking, like, even if Nintendo shuts down production entirely and Vita starts selling 200 thousand a week, consistently (3DS doesn't even do this) it'd take over ten months.

I don't know anyone who actually expects to outsell the 3DS. So long as they approach their PSP numbers, Sony will be happy. It's a shame they didn't put as much effort into the Vita as they're doing with teh PS4. But, at least they're slowly learning.
