On July 2nd, 2014, Polygon published an article quoting Andrew House stating “The U.S. launch of the slimmer and lighter PS Vita has generated strong interest among gamers, and we’re working to replenish supply here to ensure continued momentum leading into the holidays.” Really Sony? Well the NPD numbers are out…..and it doesn’t back up that statement at all.
The NPD numbers were released today for June, and the PS Vita sold 15,000 units for the month of June. That is 4,000 units less than the ORIGINAL WII. So is Nintendo having trouble keeping supply with the Wii Mini?
Because it’s outselling the PS Vita in North America. Look, I don’t want to turn this into a sales flame war, but I really don’t like being lied to Sony. Don’t sit here and act like the PS Vita is doing something great, when it’s not.
This is why I don’t trust Andrew House and his random quotes with ZERO proof to back up what he is saying.
What do you guys think about this? Am I off the mark here or does Sony have some ‘explaining’ they need to do?
