    I expected better numbers for Vita. Damn 3DS is on roll. Mario is eternal.

    I’m shocked at both the number of Vita systems sold this week and the lack of Vita games in the top 20. It seems Sony will have to do something drastic like Nintendo did to actually boost up the Vita sales, at least domestically. Let’s see how things go worldwide.

    Also, Final Fantasy XIII-2 dropping to fifth place, would never expect that to happen. I predicted a third place, but never a fifth. I still think it will come close to one million copies sold domestically, even if not right away. Or at least, 800k copies.
