You have the same mistake from last week. Do you not read the comments after you make an article? Vita had more then a 0% market share in 2011, it released in Japan before years end. Look at "Market Share - 8th Generation (Same Periods Covered." How is Vita 0% there and 3.5% in the Total Market Share Section?
