What's it going to take to get vita to start selling like the 3ds?(honestly)

#1birdfartomatoPosted 9/30/2012 3:48:17 AM
The impossible at this point, a Monster Hunter? Nope as you seen when they took dragon quest from the ps2 it stuck with the DS the whole run. So now I can see them putting all their time into the wii U and 3DS.

This is what I think, but I know it want happen: MGS Exclusive, COD game made by activision, a God of War within 1 year 1/2 from now(no one will care after that point), Resident Evil Console like game not a arcade spin-off. WWE Smackdown 13, has lots of replayability!! but nope

Why does it have to sell as well as the 3DS?
Does Ferrari sell as much as Honda?

Vita isn't going to be abandoned by Sony any time soon, even a rudimentary understanding of business would tell most people that. Sony will stand behind their product even at a loss for a very long time before giving up on it, which really is the only side of the Vitas sales that we should care about.

an MGS exclusive won't save the vita, look at the psp for example, infact none of those games you mentioned will save the vita at all.

RPG RPGS RPGS RPGS RPGS DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

if that happens, japan will atleast save it.

Lower prices, that's with the console _and_ the memory card.
And games targeting a younger audience.

I doubt the Vita will ever match up the 3DS in sales, but...

The Vita could do with a price drop in time for Christmas. It'd help a lot with sales.

Though, I'm not sure if that'll actually do more damage to Sony themselves, considering they're losing money on the Vita as it is, and are in a ton of debt.

The Vita just needs its own identity with exclusives that you won't be able to find anywhere else. I've seen a lot of Vita games also available on PS3, and honestly, that just hurts the system more than anything else as it seems like the device for inferior console ports.

I feel like handheld gaming is so popular because of how niche and experimental the games can be, take a look at Ghost Trick or Ace Attorney for example. Those games work so well with the DS, and its just one of the many, many reasons to get the system.

Nintendo likes power and they have it force of way. Vita needs to get FF X launched and maybe a Lumines or Gravity rush sequel. They can't actually expect to match Nintendo in any case. If they snuff and bore like nintedont blast processing they'll get the charls in there heads and wind up drown in a ditch after the same bottle of booze like sega. One on the run cant spire flight like a hey its crap give us all it and then *goes away*
