In the Wii U topic the TC said "I'm going to slap my sister".

I think this confirms that TC is twitterfriends!

The main reason it will flop and so will future dedicated handheld gaming systems, is because of the rise of mobile/tablet gaming. Wile they don't have buttons games are infinitely cheaper. $0.69 - $10 compared to $40 for VITA and 3DS. Nobody can be bothered carrying around a phone and a VITA/3DS.


I carry my 3DS with me wherever I go, and now that I got myself a Vita I'm doing the same with that as well.

I always smile when I see this stupid argument. I have an android phone and I play 2 games regularly on it which happen to be Words with Friends and SongPop. The games are cheap on phones because they cost next to nothing to make as the average phone game has as much depth as Kim Kardashian. Your simple mind might be pleased with games where the gameplay consists of swiping and tapping a touchscreen but I like my games a little more challenging which is why I take my Vita with me everywhere along with my phone.

why are people calling TC a troll? he is simply stating facts, the vita is selling very poorly and people don't want it even after a price drop.

stop being so defensive just because somebody is stating facts you don't like

trolls and fanboys are the same just working on different ends of the spectrum.

The Vita has had some strong sales in Japan as of recent; sales had exceeded that of the 3DS one week. There has also been a steady release of games for the console so, no. The Vita is not a failure; its presence in the market is only goinig to get stronger.

I like the post where the guy compared Vita & WiiU to World War 2.


LOL so many insensitive and sure-to-be-modded jokes that I will have to keep to myself


6 million Vitas were lost in the war

Do flopped, failed, and dead mean the same thing?

If not, what does flopped mean?
