    Vita Sales Forecast cut again, now planning to sell only 7 million units

    Gamasutra - News - Sony slashes PS Vita sales forecast once again

    ...The company put this down to "the slow penetration of the PlayStation Vita," adding that it recognized the poor sales of the device as a "particularly important issue."

    As a result, it now estimates that the PS Vita and the PSP together will sell 7.0 million units during the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013.

    This forecast has been cut multiple times over the last year -- originally Sony estimated it would sell 16 million Vitas and PSPs during this fiscal year. This was then cut down to 12 million, and then once again slashed in November to 10 million.

    In sales, yes. I still play my Vita much more than my 3DS. Though the new Fire Emblem is amazing, no denying that.

    I'm kinda glad I dodged this bullet
    but I can't help but think that if they found a way to CFW the vita they would get more sales like the PSP lol

    Ive always saw Nintendo as the king of handhelds anyway
