Why is the Vita outselling the Wii U?

There is no logical reason that a competing handheld console should be outselling a home console like the Wii U. The only handheld console that should be outselling the Wii U is another Nintendo console like the 3DS. It just doesn't make any sense.

...Because the Vita is actually an awesome little hand-held now?

Considering you're likely trolling, nothing we say to give a logical reason will be taken into account and listened to.

According to my workplace, you can threaten managers with a box cutter and keep your job. WTH is wrong with this company?!

Remote play. I have a Vita for remote play and have bought 0 games for it, although the free PS plus games are nice.

If you haven't played Ys yet, you're doing yourself a great disservice.

Because the Japanese hate Nintendo and love handhelds. In April NPD Wii U outsold Vita 49k to <3.3k. Doesn't look like outselling in America to me.

Two Things:

1. The Vita has been out for 2+ Years already

2. In their respective Markets the Wii U is actually doing better then the Vita.

Vita is better in every way and actually has a future.

The Vita was released in December of 2011, the Wii U in November of 2012.

...The Vita has been out for eleven months longer than the WiiU has...I don't really think you can use that as a valid as to why the Vita is doing better in some areas than the WiiU.

It's only barely outselling it in Japan, the goddamn HANDHELD country, and even then the Wii U is still overall doing better. The Vita's getting an increase in sales as its actually getting SOME games.
