    Japan already pick its portable system of choice, it will be really hard that Vita sales goes up in the mean time.
    And yeah, this is terrorism on Nintendo's part lol

    Nice to see that a new game on 3DS helped boost the hardware sales last week. Thanks for the heads up.

    Did they release a Love Plus bundle in Japan?

    Edit: LMAO@ your signature Valwin. xD

    Just because you don't like it, or most westerners at that, doesn't mean it's a bad game.

    I still think it's funny how the PSP sells more than the Vita.

    You don't like it, that doesn't make it bad.
    If it isnt a good game, why would it sell so much?

    So it's become crystal clear that Japan is infatuated with the 3DS and disinterested in the PS Vita

    And so naturally people have decided to come to the conclusion that if Japan buys things they don't like, Japan must have bad taste.

    Because your opinion is fact, of course.

    People in general have bad tastes.
    It's the reason why games like Love Plus, Call of Duty, Just Dance and all them other ShovelWare games sell so much.
    That's all I feel like saying on the subject.
