Vita has a good chance to be lucrative in the Western market if FPS games are done well for it. Looking at the most hyped COD, i am speechless to what i have i comment on this half-***ed game.

Nintendo is probably great and has a dedicated fanbase. Nevertheless, this is after all a different region with different cultures to Japan, there are still potential in the market that Sony can capitalize on.

Another big problem is always happening to big companies like Sony where they have many other departments. Since they have so many sides to cover, sometimes they are just lost on which to focus. Nintendo on the other hand, has the advantage of solely focusing their organization goals on video games. That probably helped the company to stay focused and reminded of what outcome they want.

I think the most important thing is the image of Ps Vita. Lets face it, the population of hardcore gamer is just a minuscule fraction of the casual gamer. If they had understood this concept, they would not position their product as hardcore gamers only. Even within its hardcore gamers base, the system has not positioned itself well whether it is just a system that plays port or justdumbed down version of ps3 (very negative as hardcore gamers most likely would have own a home console like ps3)

There are countless reasons that lead to this outcome. However, one of the main culprit will be the wrong business model for the Ps Vita. If Sony can rectify this problem and make amendments (which i believe they will), there is still hope. I predict that 204 shall be the year for Vita :)


By 2014 it'll be far, FAR too late. Sony needs to rectify their problem NOW, not at least a year and a half later when the 3DS increases its lead, developers ignore the Vita, and the Vita is ultimately forgotten.

Yes, it passed 3DS day 1 with the launch titles. Too bad gamesdon't matter to most consumers. They just want to watch Mario jump over, and over, and over, and...

Yeah, I mean it's not like people play games other than Mario on the 3DS or anything. Lol. This is the lamest retort ever.

I know I didn't get a 3DS for Mario (outside of Paper Mario).

Naturefanboy99 is really desperate for self-reassurance nowadays, so it's no surprise seeing him flop yet again.

There are always exceptions to the generalization. Do you really think 3DS would be doing so well without SM3DL, NSMB2, and MK7?

3 of the top 4 games have Mario in the title. What I said is true, generally speaking.

Weak. Prove to me with YOUR better sources that those top 4 games are wrong. You won't be able to, because those numbers are close to accurate. VGChartz uses predictions for weekly numbers, but they do post the real numbers afterwards. I'm not talking about weekly numbers. These are lifetime numbers and are much more accurate. I will gladly consider a better source if you have one.

OK, so what are the real numbers then??? If you can't back up what you are saying with facts, you have no argument. VGChartz is recognized as a credible source:

They use weekly estimates, which can be wrong. But lifetime numbers are correct. AGAIN, you got a better source? cite it.
