Interesting (I guess) that the Vita sales of Zero Evo didn't drop like a rock (comparatively) due to the freezes that still haven't been fixed.

Vita is (still) dead (again).

...yeah, I'll wait for about a year before I consider buying a Vita even though I really want to right now.

With each week there is less and less hope for the system.

How long has it been since the 3DS hasn't been the hardware with the most Top 20 software?

If you said 3 years ago that 360 stood a chance of outlasting DS and Wii in Japan you'd have been put in the nuthouse.

Lowest Vita numbers ever?
Yes

1. 5,806
2. 6,134
3. 6,340

but also expected.

I think that also the Wii registers its lowest result today.
Obviously, there are big differences between the 2 data (almost 11.5 millions differences)

Vita close to joining the Wii and 360 and PS2. Don't worry Vita, everything floats down here!

RE6 and Dark Souls have been beastly.

Bravely Default numbers are amazing and I'm glad to see it doing well. Vita on the other hand, not even in my wildest dreams did I foresee a situation this bad (and I was a Vita pessimist as well), I really hope it sees a swift recovery.

Vita about to die.

Edit: At this pace it will take 4 more weeks for Vita to reach 1 million.

Bravely Default is doing a pretty good job - guess this ensures some more support from SE

And also I love those Dark Souls numbers, yummy!

Vita at 5k with a release and another game selling above 7k in its second week; next week what have we got for it?

Borderlands 2 did 'decently' for a western game in its first week.

BD doing brilliant still - wonder if this will see more new IPs launching on the 3DS as confidence grows? Download version could skew figures next week.
NSMB2 finding its feet or gently falling? Am not sure which.

Kind of a boring week. Not much to talk about though I'm happy for Capcom that RE6 is doing well.

Previous low for Vita was 6,340 May 7 - May 13.

Shockingly bad now. We are approaching the 3DS' all time low of 4,132 during the week of Aug 1st 2011, right before the price cut went into effect.
