Because nobody gives a **** about budget, but about how good a game is? The better question is how a lot of games with high budgets end up being such a ****fest full of overly long movie sequences, bugs, DLC, patches and reliability on online content.


So.
Much.
This.

by any chance, do we have any definitive Vita sales numbers, as in "PSP-adjusted" numbers?
even 5 million seems a bit much for how low the monthly sales were


I was thinking it was like 3.5 million. Pathetic.

I think you guys are forgetting that the fiscal year will not include the launch in any country, since that happened before March 31st, 2012.

I was thinking life-to-date sales, but that does make things look even worse.

I was viewing the previous thread that i made back in august when sony dropped the forecast to 12 million. It was funny to look back at it

http://m.gamefaqs.com/boards/620272-playstation-vita/63602192

ylvis was pretty spot on back then for saying sony will lower the forecast to 10million (which sony did in nov)


I noticed this on there:

It already did 1.4M so it will do much better than 4M.

So according to the slides, they're at 5.7m now and expect another 1.3 to be sold this quarter. With 10k sales a week in each of the three big regions, the Vita will sell 360k in this timespan, so the PSP has to sell 940k, or about 80k a week. Seems pretty impossible to me, i wonder what bedlam expecations they got for the next fiscal year.

Of course 333.33M is 1/3 of a billion Nintendog. Rage-o-meter increasing, intelligence decreasing - CorruptedRPG demonstrating his thought process

Don't worry. They will revise their forecasts down again the day before the end of the quarter.

It is not like they don't have plenty of experience lowering forecasts.

The funniest part was when they first released their insane 16m forecast and all the fanboys said "They obviously got some very big titles planned! There's no way the forecast is bad!".

Quote:Uhmmm... The Vita is selling much worse than the 3DS ever did. The thing is that Nintendo actually had a chance to lower the price, but Sony doesn't right now because it will make them bleed money.
@ylvis
hows the wii u selling? Not to well id imagine.

@bluedmon
Your fanboy is showing. You should pull your pants back up.
