Nintendo’s handheld appears to be outpacing Sony’s by a factor of more than 2:1.
The 3DS is outselling Sony’s PS Vita in Europe by a factor of approximately 2:1 or greater each week, according to graphs released by Nintendo as part of its overnight conferencewith investors.
Whilst exact figures aren’t available, a chart indicates that the 3DS has been shifting approximately 40,000 units per week on average, compared to PS Vita’s 10,000 to 20,000 units.
PS Vita came sprinting out of the blocks at launch, but quickly settled into an uninspiring sales pattern.
To make matters worse for Sony, Nintendo feels its 3DS has underperformed outside of Japan.
