Wow, for a second there I thought I was still on the Wii U board, lol.

Explain to me again why people are trolling Nintendo fans on the Vita board again?


The fight to not be in last place is a fierce one.

It's easy. Console wars are basically the training wheels equivalent of trolling.

Vita is selling a fraction of what PSP sold. Even if it improves it's highly unlikely it'll ever match PSP hardware sales.


I'm never going to dispute this.

People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

ya, there's so many Nintendo fans here. /sarcasm. Why are Sony fans so paranoid that people that don't like the Vita must be Nintendo fans? Is it part of the reassurance?

Great for the Vita, terrible news for the Wii-U. The messed up part is those Nintendodrones in the Wii-U forums used to use the Vita as their whipping boy for a worse example of failing, but now that the Vita has bounced back when their beloved Wii-U is still setting itself up for the worst Nintendo fail since the Virtual boy, they've been remarkably silent.


Aiming high, are we.

......But it's true.


No

The worldwide console market is bigger than the worldwide handheld market currently.


Last generation:

Total "current" handheld sales: ~260 million

Total "current" console sales: ~250 million

By "current" I mean consoles that are out already and receiving games.


The problem with this is that in encompasses a time when the existence of portables weren't threatened by smartphones. DS and PSP came out in 2004. That's a completely different time. 3DS and Vita will never reach what DS and PSP did. Never.

Also, regardless of how well the hardware sales did, software sales (and thus overall revenue) is tremendously skewed in the direction of consoles worldwide. Hardly any handheld games chart outside of Japan. It's all console games the vast majority of the time. Consoles simply generate more revenue.

The question was which between WiiU and Vita's poor sales means more to their respective companies. Despite PSP being profitable for Sony, it didn't generate NEARLY as much revenue as PS2 or PS3. They aren't relying on Vita like they will on PS4. Their bottom line for Vita is whether or not it's profitable.

3DS will not fill the DS's shoes (which is fine, as the DS was an absolute beast) but will likely be a great revenue generator for the company. WiiU not coming anywhere near Wii numbers has to be concerning. Nintendo never put Wii on the backburner as much as Sony did with the PSP. They need it to do well. WiiU failing isn't a small deal to Nintendo.


Umm 3DS has already outsold DS at the same period of time after launch.

Nintendo DS sales from 2004-12-31 until 2006-09-30 : 26.82 mil
Nintendo 3DS sales from 2011-03-31 until 2012-12-31 : 29.84 mil

So your speculation is wrong.

Not to stir the pot, but your links quite clearly state units shipped, not sold
