If JRPGs are soooo popular, then why are the Vitas sales still so poor.

To me this just screams that the JRPG genre is garbage that only a select few people actually enjoy. If the Vita had more western games, to cater to a western population then it would sell much better than it is now.

Games like:
GT
GTA
Elder scrolls
Battlefield

Actual console quality that we were promised.

JRPGs aren't that popular outside of Japan.

Sony hasn't put many JRPGs on Vita, 3DS has been covering it too well imo.

Sony is aiming for the rest of the world and some of those games will come after the upcoming push.

I dont see how Sony is aiming for the rest of the world. If they were doing that, then it would be selling.

I would have to say that the Vita has the worst game library of any console released in the last ten years.

The best RPG's are JRPG'S, Demons souls and Dark souls. That is the experience I want on my vita.
