Sony can't hit vita forecast, and even more pessimistic about next year

"Combined PlayStation Vita and PSP shipments increased slightly to 7.0 million units, from 6.8 million units."

So they said 16M, then 12M, then 10M (last nov), and they missed even that by 30%? Wow .... i wonder if they need a new forecaster.

"The company is also expecting a drop in handheld shipments of just five million units for the PlayStation Vita and PSP combined"

So they expect a whopping 28% decrease in their handheld hardware business in the next year. I guess vita is not going to make up for loss sales in psp, and would you want to guess how much of vita sales decline is in that forecast?

I suppose Ps4 is Sony's only hope for its gaming business now.

Don't listen to Stargazer64, he owns Nintendo(n't) consoles and is a well-known troll around these parts. - Rotuhiiri

So? Those are publicly released figures from their earning statement.

How about this one:

Same information.

Because vgchartz is credible if all they did was reciting Sony publicly released statement.

In any case, are you disagreeing that vita+psp missed even the twice lowered 10M forecast, and next year forecast is a drastic 28% reduction from the low 7M sales of this year?

You obviously care enough to question the source.
