Screw that weirdo JRPG crap. Get more AAA stuff like KZM out there to go with the indies and this will have a great library.

That number of PS2s is amount shipped, not sold.


So is the DS amount. What's your point?

Nintendo has been using shipment figures for years, just like Sony and Nintendo:

So yeah. :p

Shipped = Sold as far as Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony are concerned

Also if you want to further argue the point the PS2 topped 1.5 billion in software sales compared to 935 million in software sales for the DS. So even though the both sold about the same amount of hardware the PS2 sold considerably more software.

You guys went way off topic :P

My point is, The DS sold 30x what the Vita did and they never localized the games then. Why would they localize them now?

They both had advantages though. A lot of parents bought multiple DS units for their kids (like if they had two children they bought a DS for each of them), plus the upgraded versions (DS Lite, DSi, and DSi XL) were reason to upgrade than the PS2's redesigns.

For PS2 it was obviously on the market for a lot longer but I doubt many houses had multiple PS2s


Well I wouldn't go that far. People certainly bought multiple PS2s...because the hardware was pretty ****ty. It had a very high failure rate due to the disk drives failing on them quite frequently, which people would replace. It's the same kind of padding the 360 received due to people buying multiples of that system over the course of the generation.
