The gap is going to continue to grow considering 3DS releases on the horizon.

Monster Hunter just added 200k to that lead in Japan in a single week. Pokemon will add millions.

Monster Hunter 4 and Pokemon still not added yet. lol


Teriol (on 19 September 2013)

the 3DS don't need pokemon or MH4 to increase the gap week by week, pokemon and MH4 are just another way to kill vita forever... i think.


Nintendogamer (on 19 September 2013)

with MH4 and pokemon, gap will expand and ooooozze out the sides :P

These gap charts have to be so depressing to WiiU and Vita fans. A PS3/360 gap chart would be interesting or 7th gen for different regions.


Kaizar (on 20 September 2013)

The Wii U has 6 more months before anything is decided about its faith.

So right now only Vita fans are depress.

But I can't wait to see the first 12 months of PS4 & ONE sales. Now that will be interesting.

It's a website about video game sales... this is an article about sales. Seems perfectly fine. If people can't handle it maturely, that's their own fault.
