Indeed. We can argue on the same level of the posts on the WiiU topic too, it seems.
So if we copy-paste the posts from there, this topic is not in danger of being closed!

I think the Vita is on a minor upswing. It should gather some momentum over the next few weeks and keep fairly steady sales numbers.

I dunno what Nintendo is going to do about the Wii U. Ideally Mario Kart would have launched closer to 3D World to try to reproduce a 3DS-style comeback.

I hope a new 3DS revision comes out this year. I have grown to mildly dislike my XL in spite of its comfort.

My XL broke (unfortunately, the issue is not covered by the warranty), and I've been waiting for a new revision to buy one, rather than pay the $110 to get it fixed.

It's been seven months, now...

And I think the Vita's pretty much going to remain where it is - somewhere between 20k and 25k each week. That's not really an issue - after all, the 3DS is between 30k and 40k, and selling even half as well as the 3DS can't be considered a failure. The biggest problem the Vita's facing is that its jumps aren't nearly as big as they should be. When an anticipated 3DS game comes out, its sales jump 200%. When an anticipated Vita title comes out, Sony's lucky to get a 50% jump. That's what needs to change.

I think it will slowly come down around the next weeks. No major games coming up, right?
So it will probably trickle down to 20,000. A new game would temporarily give it a lift like this week though.
Recently, the stop-line has become 20,000 instead of the usual 10,000, it feels. Hmm... Not to sure.

I thought I saw a few releases over the next few weeks that looked appealing to Japanese gamers. But I can't remember where I saw the list.

I guess it was that J-Stars game and Samurai Warriors 4. There are a few other RPGs coming out but I don't know if they are popular enough to affect hardware sales at all.

J-Stars Victory Vs <--

This? I guess.
I can see it attracting customers, after all being a Jump collection game.
I personally would not buy it even if it was on the 3DS though. After all, BanNam + Character-focused game rarely ends in a pretty manner.

Is samurai warriors 4 on Vita? I know there is that PS4 game that looks similar - or is it SW4? - but never knew there was a handheld version. We'll never see it, more than likely, which is no great loss as they seem so wooden to me.
