we are all on our way to a future full of angry birds.
Noooooooooo...... the horror! Could be a new Steven king book.
If the smartphone sheep get their way, all games for handheld systems will become $2 F***en shovelware.
Then why do Vita fans get so butthurt when ios gets games that they don't? Oh wait cause you are ignorant and think that just because a system has a lot of shovelware that is also has no games.
Let me educate you. Smartphones can not only play shovelware games, most of which are free and some of which are actually good, it also has a lot of exclusives, some of which suck like every other system out there but there are some great ones as well. Oh and it has ports from TWEWY to Final Fantasies to even ps1 and some psp games. However the biggest reason that smartphones will kill the Vita is because the Vita is killing itself without the exclusives to pull gamers to it and overcome its handicap of not making real calls.
Smartphones + Shovelware, yes they are 'free'(ads included), yes Epic releases decent ios games, yes SquareEnix are porting games to ios, but who really cares about Smartphone games when it does so much more than games!
The Vita has a 3g version that CAN'T make calls.
How stupid can Sony get???

Its way too soon to tell. But gamers WANT it to fail for basically selfish or jealous reasons. Its sad too, since Vita is basically the perfect portable core gaming machine. If it fails, that means core gaming failed, and we are all on our way to a future full of angry birds.
Gamers shouldn't want ANY system to fail. That is just stupid. I can go back through this thread and pick out many of the stupid people here by isolating the ones who claim it has ALREADY failed and/or the others who want it to fail. Why would any "gamer" want a superior piece of hardware to fail for third-party devs? Stupiditiy is why. There is no intelligent argument against that. For any of the systems to fail is a partial "win" for Apple.

I decided to buy a new handheld last week and went with the psp over the vita simply because vita didn't have any games I was interested in (while the psp has a list a mile long). Maybe when they release more games for the vita it will rebound, but considering I just bought a new handheld I know I won't be buying a vita now. That's where the failure comes in.
What's with all of the deflection? I swear, the moment anyone says anything anti-Vita, Sony fans have to bring the 3DS into the pictures. "What do you mean the Vita is failing?! The 3DS didn't sell well at first either!!1"
Yeah, no kidding, and that's why they dropped the price by $80. They also managed to release some AAA titles within just a few months of the price drop. And right before the 2011 holiday season. It was perfect marketing execution. So why would you compare the Vita to that when Sony is blatantly refusing to adjust the price or produce quality titles within the same time frame?
So like, two years from now, when the Vita has sold 6 million worldwide, are people still going to be referencing the 3DS and it's lousy first six months of sales? Seriously, this makes no sense to me. And yet Vita fans constantly complain about people talking about the 3DS on here...you do it to yourselves.
