Why do you guys think PSP sales increased when new pokemon games released?

And do you think it'll be the same with the Vita?

I mean pokemon could really help the Vita. When pokemon was released for the DS, the PSP saw an increase in sales so wouldn't the same thing happen with the Vita?

It seems people do not understand my logic, look at PSP sales during pokemon releases. Why did it happen? Its best quarters were when pokemon games were released. So why did that happen? RPGs. That is why.

Pokemon gathered more interest in RPGs, like a small bump or something IDK the word for it, but it means short rise in interest.

The psp had a ton of them. Do you guys get what I am saying now?

I mean the psv has a ton of RPGs, so if the psp gained sales because of it having more rpgs and pokemon bring more interest in rpg gaming on the go, shouldn't it have the same effect?

Or do you guys think that the RPG is bologna and won't happen again

I really don't understand your logic. Why would a popular game on another system be good for a different system?

So correlation means causation now?

Am I the only one who can't understand Giga's logic? If when Nintendo released the Pokémon games the sales for the PSP increased it was probably due to the games released FOR THE PSP!

But it wasn't just once or twice. And it happened in multiple regions. At different times.

if it was once in one region I would not say something this stupid.

i understand what your saying. i would expect it increase sales of other rpg's already on nintendo platform. not sell another system. the question is what games came out on psp at the same time as pokemon games to compete with it? thats a more likely reason
