Jello seems to be ignoring the fact that the only place that was really selling it for less than $200 was amazon.


No, you're ignoring the fact that the $199 bundle was widely available, it was $110 off list price (list for the Vita is $250, AC Liberation is $40, and a 4gb card is $20)--that's more than a third off!--yet the Vita still only managed to sell 160k.

So first Sony bundles the Vita with a brand new high-profile release and a 4gb memory card for free (a $60 savings), then it slashes the price of the bundle down $199 (another $50 savings). And that was just the normal Black Friday deal, not the fire sale Amazon bundle. Yet only 160k in sales? Dire.


and whats even worse, the 3ds was hardly reduced in price during black friday and sold 100k more than the vita. flop


And even then the 3DS numbers are widely considered bad. Yet the Vita numbers are good? It's total denial of reality.

When people thought the Vita only sold 80,000 during Black Friday, it was a flop. Now that the Vita actually sold double that, it is still a flop? This board is hilarious.

they dont like the fact that nintendo still moves more units and makes more money on consoles than they do.


I read that every game bought with a wii u at launch made the system profitable

Who's trolling? Are you suggesting that the fact that the AssCreed Vita bundle took hours to sell out is a sign that the Vita is doing well? That deal should have been sold out in 15 minutes to an hour tops.

It would be more accurate to report people talking about the Vita doing well as trolling because it is demonstrably untrue.

Only a sony fanboy will think 160k is not a flop. It is dead last for the all consoles & handheld.

And this is the biggest selling weekend of the year. Anyone seriously think that vita can meet the now twice lowered forecast based on this 160k number?

And this is after two bundles, and a price drop (which Sony said won't happen till 2013).

If people had thought it sold 1k units on Black Friday but in actuality it had sold 2k, would you claiming it was no longer a flop?

What''s hilarious is how low the Vita fanboys keep setting the bar.
