Vita did 320k in two days (160k /day last week, probably 250k / 70k each day) and this week did 70k (10k per day)...initial shipment was 500,000 so it will be interesting to see what it settles at in late January. By the way, those Just Dance figures are amazing - higher than launch week months ago.

Wow. Launching the Vita in the Holidays seemed a very good idea. Now the comparisons make it look even worst.

Oh, and thanks for the percentages, Just Dance Wii +120%!

Comparing vita to osprey sales is a little harsh isn't it? It still has. Big userbase and good games coming out for it in Japan.

I couldn't help notice the DS Lite numbers even though the Vita numbers were the main draw. I just find the 32 DS Lite sales for the week kind of funny since it just such a low number. Might as well taken a picture of them with the headline the last DS Lites in Japan have been sold.

I think PSV is doing bad, but didn't PSP start off much worse?

Wait for a JRPG for sales to sky rocket.

Why are people calling Vita a bomb already? It's only been 2 weeks, give it some time to take off.

Why in the world would you be happy it bombed? If you don't want it, don't buy it. Why care how something does unless you're interested in one yourself?
