    24/7 Wall St., LLC says, that while its initial sales were promising, the overall sales of the PlayStation Vita are poor, compared to the Nintendo 3DS, smartphones and tablets.

    Meaning compared to the 3DS which has exceptional sales considering the overall history of handheld consoles and smartphones or tablets with which the PSVita doesn't compete as it is neither. Good job.

    Didn't even have to click the thread to know who posted this. ;o;

    But yeah, the Vita flopped. Sales are horrid. Upcoming game library sucks. The end is nigh.

    Only way for Sony to save the Vita is if they somehow get a triple dose exclusive Final Fantasy x Monster Hunter x Dragon Quest. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Edit: And @Foxi4, please don't try to use your asinine reasoning to justify these sales.

    Whatever floats your boat. This isn't "News" by the way, it's just another one of those circlewank threads.

    There's a higher chance of getting Halo 6 on the Vita, than that happening.

    There's a higher chance of Uncharted on the 3DS, than that happening.

    Manipulating quotes to insert your own agenda and promote an argument (where is the "initial sales were promising, the overall sales of the PlayStation Vita are poor, compared to the Nintendo 3DS, smartphones and tablets." statement in the actual Vita paragraph? Nowhere.. you're just trolling.) And then posting it as news (again trolling).

    Stay classy.

    I WANT IN I WANT IN I WANT IN I WANT IN

    AWWWWWW!


    Anyways, yeah, the console hasn't appealed to me at all. I mean it's a powerful handheld and can do some amazing things, but why aren't developers jumping on the chance? I think in this case, this is one of those cases where Sony has to lead the charge to make games for it to show developers how to do it. Also, a price drop would probably help. Yeah Sony will take a blow, but let's be honest, as soon as the PS3 took a price drop, sales skyrocketed. It'll help immensely.

    I still don't understand why they aren't dropping the price of it yet. Why would I spend $280 (tax included on the console) for something that doesn't have much support when I can spend less than that and get a 360. Make some games Sony, show what the system can do. Show to me why I should be interested.

    When asked about the Vita before its launch I said it would outsell the PSP and do much better in the market. It fixed almost everything that was wrong with the PSP. Fast forward to today and I can honestly say there are days I wonder why Sony just doesn't pull the Vita off the shelves or the PSP as it seems to be cannibalizing the Vita's sales....

    Maybe it's just the industries version of the self fulfilling prophesy, the one that says "Nintendo owns the hand held console market." once you have convinced the publishers and the consumers of this it really can make it tough to launch a competitor. It's not like Sony has enough in house development to pull off supporting a console by themselves.

    The upcoming titles and whether they are "good" or "not good" is entirely a matter of taste - Killzone: Mercenary, Soul Sacrifice, Phantasy Star Online 2, Warrior's Lair, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus and God Eater 2 are just about enough to keep me excited so I'm not complaining.

    That is correct, that's not in the article at all...

    ...which means that Valwin asked someone to write it for him, 'cause he sure as hell didn't write it himself. ;O;
