Don't worry, Vita increased a lot in sales after the price drop, and with the new PS4-Vita Remote Play is just a matter of time before Vita rises in millions!

So the 3DS has outsold the PSV by 20 million since the latter released. That's just under two years! Blimey :/ Might end up at 35 mil by the year's end.

I feel like it could serve to fuel some console wars because of how close the numbers will be. Then again, vgchartz members are probably more mature than that.

The Wii U is selling more then the PS Vital on most weeks, so I would like to see that comparison, especially come December & all of 2014.
