Shooters are the most popular games on consoles, right? Maybe in order for the Vita to succeed, Sony needs to get more third-parties to port their FPSes over to the Vita.

Now that Bungie isn't working for microsoft anymore, Sony should have Halo put on the Vita. Isn't the Call of Duty developer publishing bungie's stuff now? They could put it on the Vita easy.

Doesn't Microsoft own Halo?

I don't think it's so much lack of shooters, as it is the shooters that w have sucking so badly. But in all reality, a system doesn't live Or die by its shooters. The vita has other problems and if this is a factor in its poor sales, it's a small one.
always assume everybody on the Internet is either a 12 year old, or a creeper in his mid 40's. The Internet makes more sense that way.

No. The 3DS has no shooters but is hugely successful.

Kid Icarus Uprising is very much a shooter.

Its flopping because everyone says its flopping. due to that noone wants to buy somthing thats flopping. Maybe if people would just buy the thing the flopics will stop being made.

That logic has more chromosomes than the next Pokemon game

>_>

It has no system sellers. Before MH got a free pass because it carried PSP/Vita sales in Japan but theres no singular Sony game capable of pushing tons of units in any region.
It's not about graphics vs gameplay, it's about profits vs gameplay. Profits are more important than gameplay in this forum. -lgi on the Wii U messageboard

I assumed TC was talking about FPSs. KI: U is a TPS.

Anyway, shooters (FPS or TPS) are nowhere near as popular on handhelds as they are on home consoles. I don't think the lack of shooters is having any effect on how badly the Vita is flopping.
