This is a pretty redundant topic.


By now, all reasonable Vita owners know that sales do matter. (By reasonable I mean everybody who is not a member of the SDF) Higher game sales= more games that get developed.

This topic is redundant in that you won't convince anybody that still believes that sales don't matter.


Agreed.

I love my vita but its obvious that it hasn't been selling as well as expected and sales always matter at the end of the day. I also believe that Sony are not going to abandon the Vita any time soon.

It gets a little boring seeing the same people (xfactor) posting the same messages every day.

you seriously need to get a life xfactor. Don't you have anything else to do?


Actually, I have. That's when I am not posting here.

And no, I don't think its redundant at all. You can never be sure,

Stop the presses people. The Vita needs to be sOLD.


You say that as if it's not one of the biggest, and dumbest ways people defend the Vita here.
"It don't need to sell, it have strongar tech, and I like sum game already. I be happy if it dies now, stoopid."



a person being satisfied with what they got out of their purchase doesn't mean they think it doesn't need to sell.

for example, i've already gotten $250 worth of entertainment outta this thing quite a while ago. SS, Ys, PSO2 and streaming ps4 games anywhere i find wifi, (too cheap to pay for cell tethering >_>), will just be icing on the cake. but being satisfied with my purchase, doesn't mean i don't think it should sell more.


I'm not talking about the people who are satisfied already.
I'm talking about the ones who do specifically use this as a defense to justify poor sales.
Just like in the Title, "Sales don't matter" is always in there somewhere. Usually followed by insults towards people who want more sales to push 3rd party development.

In this case, you said it needs to sell more, so they'd target you too by claiming it doesn't need to sell at all to be enjoyable.
They're all blinded by self centeredness and can't see the big picture at all.


if, "it doesn't need to sell at all to be enjoyable", is their main point, then they're right. how much i enjoy a system isn't dependant on how much it's selling. once it's to the point where it's worth it's price to me, selling any more is just icing on the cake.

now if they were to say, "it doesn't need to sell any more to survive, or get new releases.", then yeah, i agree that that's false.

The second half of your post is what they're saying. I know enjoyment can be gotten from it as it is.
They're saying that even if development is cut off, with no new games ever coming out, it'll continue to sell because of how good of a device it is(To them).
They only use the fact that they're currently happy as it is, as a basis to say it'll be fine no matter the situation.
Then label anyone concerned over the sales, and future development as an idiot who has no taste in games(Assuming we haven't enjoyed anything released so far and judging us for it).

I say it because it is a blatant and obvious conclusion that has been made long before this post, and so I'm just illustrating that this news is nothing new or of any merit. I'm sure you know that no one actually talks like that, so your attempt at derision baffles me because I don't see any way I could have offended you directly. So if it isn't me, it must be the people who ignorantly dismiss the lack of sales and blindly praise something, who are the vocal minority, mind you. If it makes you feel better to let that crowd incite your aggressive tendencies, then more power to you.

I wasn't directing it at you, at all.
I was pointing out that it is a very common issue on these boards, and that your post was seemingly sweeping it aside just so you could chastise TC for no reason.
The very thing you're accusing me of now.
What did TC do to you to deserve such a sacastic response from you?
Oh wait... nothing.

Maybe it makes you feel better to play the victim?
I just used your post as a jumping off point to discuss the TC's topic further.
I apologize for any offense my original post caused you, even if was imaginary.

dude, the people who actually believe that are so few and far between that i'm surprised you bothered to even mention it. that's not, "one of the biggest, and dumbest ways people defend the Vita here". that's something a select few fanboys say that's given about the same amount of credibility as any other troll.

It's xfactor lol, need I say more? Trying to put a fire out before it starts but you just want to fuel it.

Your post in response to mine is completely void of any attempt to discuss. It's pure whining for the sake of whining. See at how condescending you are? That's not an attempt at discussion lmao. We know there are people like that. We also know that most people aren't like that. If you actually stopped and thought for a moment, before running me around in blame games, this board has for the most part agreed on a regular basis that the Vita is not selling well. Think about Kitt's weekly topic before you unnecessarily take this any further.

So once again... I'm doing to those people, what you did to TC.
If he deserves no respect from you, why do they deserve it from me?

Also, I see that sentiment(That sales don't matter) all the time. If they're the minority, then the majority needs to speak up a bit.
It's literally almost daily that I see, or hear, or read that exact sentiment. It's old, and it's pointlessly stupid.

Also, something you may want to remember about me. I don't pay attention to usernames, like ever. I just now had to check what your username was.
If I see something I feel is worth responding to, I'll respond, regardless of who posted it.

oh c'mon man. i read this board while i'm at work, so i know that isn't true. the only people who say "sales don't matter" daily are the trolls. even the rabid fanboys don't go that far.
