I understand what you're saying with this post but...the last line was really unnecessary.

Also Uncharted sold about 900k

Very solid numbers for a first year platform. Probably Ninja Gaiden sold pretty well since they are releasing NG2 for Vita too, and so on.

I think Vita owners are mostly hardcore gamers, which usually have high income levels (itrs a expensive hobby you know), so even though the installed base is low, we purchase lots of games.

dont get me wrong, im not saying the 3ds is bad, just that despite having the larger userbase, it consists mostly of people who buys for that one type of game, whereas the vita consists of more hardcore gamers who follows gaming news site and buys a variety of games.

Really? Really?? OK then.

"P4G sold more than 300k" so did RE:R and others.

"AC3L sold 600k" with the bundle from black friday, that number is not impressive. If there was a bundle with any game for the 3DS that included a peripheral and had costed 50$ less than a new 3DS, do you think it would sell more or less than that?

"COD sold more than 300k" once more with a bundle, and for the brand name alone with should have sold much more, alas the game was horrible.

"Ragnarok Odyssey 250" just like AC3L, that number is shipped, not sold. And even then, 250k not that impressive for one of the very few original games the Vita has.

"3DS is not for true gamers" "True gamers" get any system that has games they want, which also explains why the Vita sells so bad.

And out of the top of my head: Inazuma Eleven Go 2: Chrono Stone - Neppuu / Raimei has sold in Japan only more than 400k and Fantasy Life sold in 3 months more than 200k, so there goes that theory that they only will buy "animal crossing, mario or zelda ".

RE:R has been a $20 budget title for months.

Considering Fantasy Life is often compared to Animal Crossing with RPG elements, I'd bite my tongue on that one. How are you enjoying those two unlocalized titles on your region-locked 3DS anyhow?
