Now that the Vita is available worldwide, the real battle between Nintendo and Sony is heating up. In the last generation, Sony's PlayStation Portable was beaten handily by Nintendo's DS. For now, a similar scenario is playing out in the mobile space, as Nintendo reported last month that it sold 11.4 million 3DS units worldwide during the nine-month period ended December 31. It wasn't always that way for Nintendo. After launching the 3DS last year at $249, few consumers jumped at the chance to buy the device. The sluggish sales forced Nintendo to drop the portable's price to $169. Although it helped total adoption, it proved to be a major drain on revenue.
Sony's PlayStation Vita has sold over 1 million units in about two months of availability, The game company announced today that it has sold over 1.2 million Vita units worldwide since the portable launched in Japan on December 17, Sony didn't break down the sales figures by country, but acknowledged that this month's launch across the U.S, and Europe helped the Vita "exceed expectations" at this team keefe iphone case point in its lifecycle, Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic, We delete comments that violate our policy, which we encourage you to read, Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion..
The news came via an official Apple invite: "We have something you really have to see. And touch." And although it sounds like something that could be whispered down a dodgy dark alley, it's undoubtedly suggesting that the newest iteration of the iPad is mere days away. This ties in nicely with rumours we've heard suggesting an early March launch event, and is roughly the same time of year that the iPad 2 was launched in 2011. Apple is nothing if not a creature of habit, so this date fits in well.
The team keefe iphone case invite was also sent out at the exact time Google's Eric Schmidt was about to start his keynote speech at Mobile World Congress -- classic bitchy Apple timing, So what are we likely to get from the latest tablet? The rumour mill has been in full flow for a while now, and we've been busy picking out the most likely nuggets of information from the masses of nonsense in our regularly updated iPad 3 rumour guide, It's likely to be packing the latest quad-core A6 processor and a retina display that's double the resolution of the current iPad..
Other reports have suggested a slightly thinner design and even better battery life. Throw in Siri and the same 8-megapixel camera we've already got on the iPhone 4S and it's shaping up to be quite the gadget. Other rumours have hinted at a smaller, 7-inch version to sit alongside it, but I'm not convinced we'll be seeing one of those this time round. CNET UK will be covering the event from every angle we possibly can next Wednesday, so stay tuned for all the latest news. In the meantime, check our complete guide, have a flick through our gallery of concept designs and watch our video below.
