    Nintendo just released their official graphic Hardware sales chart on the Investors Meeting held last night...

    At the Nintendo's Investor Meeting held last night, the company shared some tibits, related to the Wii U and the upcoming 3DS Software. Also, they released a series of graphic charts showing off the EU, US and Japan Hardware sales.

    The big surprise here is that, Wii is beating VITA in Europe!

      i wish they used the same scale in each chart.

      btw wth happened in the usa to cause that "hump" across all formats?

      vita seems to be doing ok in the usa so i guess that means wall to wall fps games since neither japan or the eu region are interested in it


      just noticed, somehow these graphs have been photo edited to remove the source details for the numbers, they were as follows eu - nintendo, japan - media create and usa - npd. so i guess one of the source websites was being a little naughty ;),

      You are right! I used the ones on the news source website linked above! Didn't notice they removed a bit until now! lol

      And yeah, VITA seems to be doing alright in the US... which is pretty weird, I thought it was doing its best in Europe, as there's a lot of PS3 love in there.

      This is not good as comparison, because Wii is a table console and price is not the same.

      yes but the wii is all but dead and at the very end of its life with its replacement being announced last summer at e3 2011 so comparing it to a fairly new console that isnt supposed to be dead does have its merits.

      Best guess as to what that spike in sales in the US is... I am thinking that maybe wives and girlfriends might have been buying game systems for boyfriends for Valentines Day? Or maybe the other way around? Or maybe more peoples birthdays are in that month then any other? lol
