Well, DS and 3DS stomped PSP and Vita, so probably flashy gimmicks.

Touching is good.

Games and prices sell better.

Casual gamers are attracted to the flashy gimmicks. Hardcore gamers are attracted to the hardware specs. Since there are more casuals than hardcores, the system with the flashy gimmick is going to sell better.

This topic isn't your oppinion on what "sells best out of anything."

It's asking WHICH ONE sells better Flashy Gimicks or Hardware Specs, and how or why it's good or bad for the industry.

Please don't derail my topic with irrevelant answers ^_^.

See the post directly above this one? I'm not ASKING your oppinion out of EVERY POSSIBLE thing under the sun that could sell a system. I'm asking simply.

Out of Flashy Gimicks and Hardware Specs which one sells better.

Your topic seems to be a subtly biased topic, so I see no reason to take it seriously. "Flashy" isn't exactly necessary; just plain "gimmicks" would have worked just fine. It really seems like your hinting towards a 3DS vs. Vita topic, and even if you're not, you've phrased your topic in such a way to incite that. You've also phrased it to favor one answer more than the other.

If you wanted to try for a serious discussion, you could have made it a lot clearer and phrased it better.

This topic has zero bias and was set up exact same time on other hand helds board. It's just asking a basic question regarding sells and how they effect systems and how it effects the industry as a whole.

Your topic sucks lol, deal with it. Games sell systems, not specs, not gimmicks.
