It is also appropriate to mention that the PS Vita was released in December 17th 2011 in Japan,so it got only about 10-15 days to achieve those 380k units.While the 3DS was released since February of 2011.

With that being said it's getting murdered.

''Japan was the debut region for the 3DS and a reported 374,764 consoles were sold during its launch weekend with another 209,623 units shifted in the following week. Its debut week saw more consoles sold than all other platforms combined.''

This was also not during any major holiday seasons, like the vita launch. So if you want to make that comparison, there you go :) And yes, I only chose Japanese numbers for this because I believe Vita launch later in Europe/America so the comparison is more fair.

And no, I don't think this topic has any point beside initiating flame wars. I'm just posting more numbers :)

ALSO (lol, so many things) I would like a source for these numbers. Didn't Vita sell 6 million units not that long ago?

Playing Virtue's Last Reward before 999? Don't. Please, for the sake of everything, don't. My crusade around the internet to spread this truth goes on.

If it doesn't include Digital Sales of all VITA titles, including PS1/PSP games bought from a VITA PSN store, as well as all 3DS digital games, it doesn't show the truth.
Although, 3DS would still be the vast winner.

Also, source.
