Over 321,000 Vita Units Sold Over First Weekend

News PS Vita Sony

The Playstation Vita has sold 321, 407 units its first weekend on the Japanese market, according to figures from Enterbrain and reported by Famitsu.com (via Andriasang). The sales figure covers both December 17, the launch day, and December 18. In contrast, the Nintendo 3DS sold 371,326 units over its first two days on the market while first day PSP sales reached 166,074 units all the way back in December 2004.

Omitted from the sales figure was the percentage of stock sold, which would have helped determine the first day shipping figures. Reports suggest, however, that the initial shipping figures could have reached 700,000 units for the launch day. Andriasang believes that the figure will be released when both Media Create and ASCII release their own Vita figures sometime in the week.


Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
