WOW! didn't realize how bad theh Vita was doing sales wise! PSP gamers where?

Where are the PSP gamers? that thing sold like 80 million units worldwide.

Yet the Vita is almost at its 2 year anniversary in 2 months and nowhere near 6-8 million units sold.
It really makes me sad because I had high hopes for this system :(

PSP got some great games but we've just been getting some ports and indie games on the Vita with only a handful of worthwhile exclusives.

A large majority of the psp sales were in japan.....where they are still making psp games for it, if that tells you anything

The PSP didn't have much in the way of worthwhile exclusives in its first two years. It had tons of ports and remakes.

A portion of PSP owners have migrated over to the 3DS due to the lack of Monster Hunter on the Vita.

Good ports and remakes like Burnout, Midnight Club, Grand Theft Auto, FFVII Crisis Core, etc., not the tepid stuff that the Vita is getting.

I'm waiting for Bandai to release the WonderSwan/SwanCrystal II and blow both the Vita and the 3DS away.

This. Plus the steady stream of must-have games for the 3DS in general just made most people jump ships, I suppose, especially in Japan.

Rule #1: Sony lies. The PSP was a failure, it did not sell as many as Sony said it did.
