After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Hardware numbers have Nintendo flying high and almost every system seeing an increase over the previous week, with the only exceptions being the PSP and of course, Vita.
3DS - 91,868
PS3 - 23,478
PSP - 20,033
Wii - 15,789
PSV - 10,583
DS - 1,911
PS2 - 1,611
360 - 1,420
For Golden Week, in a year when there was not a giant tsunami 6 weeks prior to it, those are some freaking horrible Vita numbers. Since we're in the midst of (what people want to portray as a) 3DS vs. Vita war, it's worth mentioning that the 3DS shifted over 28,000 units during last year's Golden Week. This, despite not having any new software arrivals, not having as many titles on the market, not having as many big-budget games, being on the market two months less, and oh yeah, the aforementioned tsunami that devastated two prefectures while delivering a punch the economy's stomach.

I'm no d00m and gl00m preacher, and I love the heck out of my Vita, but dude, Sony's got to be concerned that its machine is continuing to severely underperform in its homeland.
