Isn't that a bit low for PS3? I don't believe I've noticed it drop below 10k before (maybe it has, but I don't think I noticed it happening!)

Why did the 3DS bump? Colors?

Ys did alright, yeah? And EDF3's two versions.

Dragon Quest X still going, cool.

So 3DS is going to pass PS3 this year? Yes? No?
With all the hardware bundles? There is definitely a good chance.

On the bright side for Vita, it will finally cross 1 million this week.

Isn't that a bit low for PS3? I don't believe I've noticed it drop below 10k before (maybe it has, but I don't think I noticed it happening!)
Revision launching. It definitely has before multiple times.

Considering that GTA games actually sell rather well in Japan Sleeping Dogs numbers are disappointment. S-E as publisher and setting for the game being Hong Kong I though it could do rather well.

So from my calculations, LTD sales of 3DS LL should overtake LTD sales of Vita by the end of November, especially with these 3 new bundles plus the blue.

I think it'll pull it off.

Something something home consoles are dead something or other.
Not to mention Sony isn't dropping the price of the PS3 putting Wii U at the exact same price and the launch will certainly affect the PS3.

could the WiiU eat a bit into the 3DS's holiday numbers?
Potentially, but I think it is more likely to eat into potential late PS3 adopters.

They probably figure Wii U will sell regardless of what they do with their price, especially the first holiday season after the console's release. They won't change anyone's mind from getting a WiiU by dropping the price by $50 or whatever, not right now anyway.

PS3 surely dropped because the new model is coming soon, right?
People want that? I'm still trying to figure out a benefit for buying the SlimV.2 over the older versions.

In regards to the rest of the sales, surprised by Gundam, good NSMB2 legs, generally interested to see how the near-constant stream of 3DSLL colours over the coming weeks will affect sales.

Very interested in Nintendo's angle of pre-loading MH3G onto a 3DSLL and selling it on a 'Play this with the WiiU game too!' angle - they are going after the MH players who haven't switched over yet HARD.

PS3 sales are of course down because of the announcement of the new models.
Actually it means that people are interested and waiting for the new slim.
 
Do anyone remember the worst Holidays lineups for some of the losing consoles in their first years? Because Vita's lineup is terribad, and I want to know if there's something actually worse.
I would be surprised if there was a worse one, since I think almost none of the other failing consoles were from companies with two notable platforms.

Maybe the Virtual Boy?
