    In an Industry wide shock, initial sales of the PS Vita have been lower than the (approx) 50% cheaper 3DS and it's larger range of available games and avid Nintendo fanbase. Despite it's immense popularity there has been intense speculation about how much the Vita will fail due to this difference, surprisingly similar to buyers remorse in the worst cases.

    Determined to uncover the real reason for sales differences between the Vita and the 3DS (after all one of the most expensive consoles with the smallest software library always sells great in a global economic downturn) our intrepid reporter Spedder got the inside scoop...and that's literally the reason! (see inset picture)


    It seems that it has indeed been a White Christmas for 3DS owners as, following the price drop and the pre-Vita launch warm up, the console now ships with 2lbs of pure Heroin and vouchers for 3 free 3DS's (somewhat confusing hardware sales figures...) In comparison, the Vita numbers amongst it's peripherals a pair of old dirty socks, soaked in the tears of sweat shop children as they struggle to assemble slightly dubious console hinges...additionally Vita instructions state that in order for the console to boot properly owners must "Forcibly dissuade any friends, relatives or colleagues from ever buying any Sony products, and most definitely not the Vita itself".

    Could these startling truths reveal the true meaning behind the handheld war currently being fought in Japan? Only overdose figures will tell....
