That's really sad =/

To look at this and think that the vita is doing terribly because it's being outsold by the PSP which got hammered 2:1 by the NDS.... but at the same time the PSP has still sold numbers on par with both the PS3 and Xbox360 over the whole of the last generation. So it isn't like losing out to the psp is really losing to a loser.... if that makes sense?

Plus the PSP is the best selling non-Nintendo handheld by a large margin which is a great feat so its a winner to me.
