Wonder why people try to talk about the Wii U when the comparision at hand is the PSP VS the PS Vita. Needless to say, the Vita is doing really bad. I am guessing 25 million is doable.

At this rate? with 3 million a peak year? Gamecube sold 6 million during its peak year. 15 million is more likely.

Aren't Sony consoles part of a 10 year plan? If it keeps on selling for 10 years it might reach 20 million... maybe.
