Hey guys, just curious how many PSVitas you all think sold during the two launches (meaning FEB and actual launch). I have found 8 other people by me on NEAR so it looks like its going to be up there.

Maybe not much where I'm at. I don't have a Vita yet but it doesn't look like many people want it in Arizona but I could be wrong, some people could be like me and not say a word about it in public lol. I don't like to talk about games in public, it sounds weird.

5.. maybe 6. Just kidding. You could take guesses all day along. Just wait till Sony releases their sales... whenever that will be. Hopefully it will do better in the US than in Japan. My guess....... around a million.. more or less. There could be more sales though. It just came out the 22nd, so no guarantee.

I'm hoping by March it's at 2 million. Lol, seems like it's not possible but it could happen you never know.

i ended up at a best buy and frys electronics this morning and it was pretty sparse.  neither store had dedicated displays at the entrance like major launches of anything tend to have.  Out of curiosity i asked at both places and by 11, both had sold only 3-4 units each.  not representative of the nation I know but these are both high volume stores and more then anything, just speaking from the feeling I'm getting especially in hitting stores the past week adding to my launch titles.  I got mine last week, I am totally enjoying the vita, it's been significantly better then I thought it would be, I've got 10+ launch titles so I'm not trying to purposely hate.  That said, I have never seen a more underwhelming launch for any major system before like this.  I always thought the vita was going to tank and judging just by the general feel of it today, I am guessing the launch sure tanked.  They have a hard hill to climb on this one, especially if they are not proactive like nintendo was and do a very, extremely quick price drop before summer.  lose 3rd party support before that and this will not end well.

No system, handheld or console, has sold 1 million on launch day. Mainly because the company doesn't make 1 million available on launch day. They usually only stock around 400k-500k
