So psp sold 19 million units in the first 10 months of 2010, but ended off with 9 million? PSV is trueoy doing better, it only lost 1 million units after 2012.

Yes clearly a typo for Vita numbers. I was scared at first that they massively downgraded it.

PS3 and 360 numbers in 2012 for first 10 months roughly on track with 2009 sales figures. PS3 sold 13 million and X360 sold 10 million in 2009. PS3 is on track to match 13 million but 360 sales need to pick up to reach 10 million in 2012.

Wow Vita is selling so bad it sold negative consoles.

3DS isn't doing that great either, it went from a 33% YoY gain to a 33% loss before the article was finished being typed.

to those of you saying "the gap is the same" try to look at how many less sales there are overall. Its market share is much higher this year. Wii is really tanking too. I can't wait till the week of the 18th to see the WiiU numbers and their effect.
