    3DS Outsells Vita 6.5 to 1

    Nintendo 3DS Outselling PlayStation Vita 6 to 1 | gamezone.com


    Opening weekend sales numbers for the PlayStation Vita have been roughly placed around 320,000 units, which is an arguably fine showing when you consider that Nintendo, who has much more history in the portable marketspace, still only moved 370,000 Nintendo 3DS units during their debut weekend. Unfortunately, Sony was unable to maintain any momentum after launch, only able to move 72,479 units in the week that followed, while another 482,200 Japanese consumers opted to pick up a 3DS.

    With the 3DS now outselling the Vita at about 6.5 to 1, Sony has a huge stumbling block to overcome in this console war. These battles are won simply by whomever can get more units into consumer hands, as developers flock to the system with the best chance of selling their software, making it an even more attractive buy. Rushing a console onto the market to try and snap up early adopters is a risky gambit (just ask the Dreamcast), though it worked for both the Playstation 2 and Xbox 360, and could work here for the Nintendo 3DS.

    We'll be keeping an eye on this war closely. Though Nintendo has a very strong lineup of games headed this way, the power inside the Vita may prove capable of handling more impressive games overall, and earn the Sony device some much needed exclusives.


    But, But, 3DS was dead on arrival! IGN said so!



    since everyone on this board was saying that the 3DS Isn't anything good and not worth buying, if it's outselling the vita 6 times, what does that say about the vita?

    Don't like Ps360's threads? Don't go into them

    Monster hunter and Mario Kart 7 is bound to be the main reasons for this.

    Nintendo fanboys are rabid, blood-sucking monsters? iPod's sell really well too.

    Sadly, this kind of numbers don't come solely from the fanboys. Nintendo gets a lot of money thanks to casual gamers.

    Nintendo has The rare market of "Everyone that is human" which is really hard to get in today's world.

    Sony and microsoft tend to advertise to the hardcore gamer audience, thus less sales because families don't want to have a christmas celebration with cutting peoples heads off with chainsaws.

    Apple sells to the "ooh shiny and magical" market which unfortunately belong to the biggest audience of people who either want to fill a void in their life by getting one or is just a blind fanboy.

    I dunno, the 3DS has not had a substantial gaming lineup (until recently)... nor did it have the novelty of the Wii. I'm not sure what would be drawing anyone in other than the folks that would give their arms and legs to see Nintendo stay afloat.

    Wait til it gets released on the US and Europe. The 3DS will crumble compared to the Vita then

    3DS has been out since april this year and the PS Vita has been out for 2 weeks. 3DS price was about the same as the vita and sales were horrible until nintendo dropped the prices like a rock. so i could understand the vita not selling well. ps vita also has other expenses that raise the price unlike the 3DS. I still would rather buy a Vita even though its going to cost about 600.00 USD for me

    I'd rather buy a Vita too, I still say Nintendo is based of nostalgia, how many Mario games have there been?

    The result of sales is irrelevant, I may not have played a Vita yet, but it seriously can't suck as much compared to a console that never had anything suited to it's main purpose to begin with other than to surprise and entertain us for a few hours.

    ....seriously, WHAT GAMES were there!?


    Launch titles have always been a little on-edge if I recall, but this took the piss.

    It says that the Vita is as (if not more) worthless than the 3DS
