The lights are on
The PlayStation Vita started out strong selling over 300,000 units during its first week in Japan. During its second week though, sales dropped 78%. It wasn't even able to outsell the original PSP during its second week.
The 3DS on the other hand, is doing incredibly well. The system has already reached 4 million units sold before even hitting its one year anniversary, exceeding the outlined expectations that Nintendo has in place for the handheld.
So, what does Sony think of all this? Nothing apparently. Bloomberg Japan asked for comment on the Vita's disappointing early performance and all SCE PR head Satoshi Fukuoka had to say was, "no comment."
The Vita releases in North America in February. Do you think it will perform better worse, or exactly the same? Or are you too busy playing Metroid: Fusion on your 3DS to even be concerned?

I'm sure things will pick up for the vita when it launches in north america
I don't even know what games they released with it.
I really want them to succed. I don't think casual cell phone games can replace mobile gaming with the PSP/DS.
hmm, maybe we'll see a rather quick price drop as well fairly soon. ... and just maybe I might be able to pick one up! woot!
