So close.

| PSV | 4.021 | 4.842 | | 589.727 | | 1.029.713
| 360 | 2.908 | 1.339 | 1.531 | 66.363 | 96.954 | 1.602.408

The question now is can PSV even catch up to 360

probably will someday

No. They posted some graphs during their financial report. Europe is showing signs of things getting better, but in no way killer like Japan. US seems to be struggling quite badly in comparison; didn't build on XL/NSMB2 as well as it should. But then maybe the holiday will bring better things there.

Its not a great outlook; but its not a terrible one either.

I don't even think Sony can even do anything the third parties in Japan at this point. Vita is pretty much 360 level. Barely anyone is going to want to develop for it money hats or not. It's only on Sony software to save this.

Least Vita doing this bad should have some soul searching over PS4, if it were doing 'a poor mans decent' I could see Sony learning nothing.

But they surely must have noticed now...right?...

It has some of the best portable games ever, imo. I think it deserves a lot of success, not to mention Tearaway and Soul Sacrifice look great.

Even if they did it will take months, years maybe before these games see the light of day, thatís not going to help them right now

Too bad those games are getting sacrificed and torn to pieces when they release, I'd like SS to do well but if it releases alongside MH4 it's going to be in twouble..

Absolutely amazing debut for Animal Crossing (especially considering DD Cards, as Famitsu seems to do), and very solid week for 3DS hw numbers. Also other 3DS softwares are doing well (New Mario is holding, BDFF too)
Everything else is flat (PS3, maybe PSP) or very bad (everything else)

Even if you take away 180.000 3DS sales, it still almost doubled the sales of Vita.

It'll boost sales, by how much is the question. If not by very much with these sales in Japan, I can't see much of a reason for Sony not to call it quits, unless they're somehow breaking even/ hoestly expecting to make a profit down the line from it.

I think he meant there were like a couple games worth caring about. Or that's just me saying there are very few games to care about.

Question, the 3DS is a mammoth, it has what can be the best games JP can give it; MH4 and DQ7, SMT4 can count too, what other games could it get? I think anything is realistic at this point.

Persona? (regardless of the E3 list already claiming so), FF7? We know it's sure to get DQ11.

What do you think?

Your forgetting the Christmas bump, which should be quite substantial considering the 3Ds is probably the only console worth buying in japan right now. Should be able to clear fairly easily.

Next week will be pretty huge too a big second week for AC and the limited edition Mario 3ds, it'll catch ps3 bythe ssecond week of December (slight possibility of the first)

Tales games tend to have a pretty sharp second week drop off, though the Xillia titles seem to have it worse than most.

Tales of Xillia - 47.297 / 572.902 (-91%)
Tales of Graces F - 39.640 / 254.828 (-82%)
Tales of Vesperia (PS3) - 48,642 / 265,000 (-78%)

You are right, I wasn't forgetting it but considering a smaller gap between 3DS and PS3 weekly based (the holiday bump will affect also PS3, I think, also if way less than 3DS, I bet).
3DS has to regain 500K over PS3 LTD to catch it: do you think that's doable within December 3qst 2012?

BTW, it's obviously just a "game": if it will not be able to surpass PS3's LTD numbers within end of December, it will probably be able to do this in few more weeks, and nothing changes in terms of 3DS success.

500,000 behind with 6 (or 7?) weeks to go? with the typical end of year Nintendo sales bump? i'd say it was a lock.
