Wow. Where did Sony go wrong in your opinion? I mean hell, even the Wii U is non existant and it sold a bit more.

Don't forget though that It's after a price cut there which also gives Sony less $$$. And even after it, these numbers are still pretty crappy even in Japan.

NeoGAF makes weekly Japanese sales topics. Here's the most recent:

The Vita still doesn't do all that great though. It's doing okay-ish but it's clearly not going to get anywhere near PSP levels in Japan. It's total sales in Japan are 1.7 million and it's been on the market since December 2011. While not a great total at least it's carving out a niche for itself there.

The PSP sold 2.5 million units its first full year (December 2004-December 2005) and the Vita is at 1.7 million after a year and seven months (December 2011-August 2013). It's lagging noticeably behind in Japan but Japan is still the Vita's strongest market by far.

Let me see, 17k*205 dollars (price of WiFi Vita)= $3485000

And that's every week, as opposed to $4250000 for the whole month in the West.

Wow, and now they announced Playstation Pets? WTF Sony. Where are your glorious PSX/PS2 days? Exclusive Digimon games which will be remembered forever for example.

R.I.P. Vita. This is worse than ever.
