    Can we add Rumor to the title please.

    Really doubt this is true. The Vita has so much more potential and most likely won't be dropped.


    EDIT: Besides, it's only been FULLY RELEASE IN JAPAN. OH HOLY SHIT THIS WON'T EVER SELL EVER!! If it doesn't sell well in 2-4 years then, and only then, will I admit the Vita is dead.

    Wait whoa what. You'd expect the Vita to be doing well, it is Sony after all. But if devs are changing from a powerful Vita system to a less-powerful 3DS? I hate to say it, but I think the Vita is doomed. idk if it'll be as bad as other systems (Virtual Boy anyone?), but I honestly don't think many people are wanting it except for the most tech-oriented. *mind=blown*

    I can't remember the last time I trusted an unnamed source... and I'm doing quite well!

    I wouldn't be surprised. Back in the early release for the 3DS a lot of games were being cancelled because of the hardware's sales. So I would expect the Vita's sales to plummet in the beginning just like what happened with the 3DS.

    Doubtful. I don't see devs wanting to limit themselves severely by moving to the 3DS. It's not even half as capable. Plus the design has to be pretty different to fit the 3DS style.

    Seriously now. Don't have a ''fanboy war'' you guys. The 3DS and Vita are both great systems and there doesn't have to be this big argument of which one is better.

    Anyways, as far as devs moving from the Vita to 3DS is very likely. Mostly because Sony has to build up a userbase and they obviously aren't even trying. Have any of you seen a Vita commercial? If you weren't on the internet as much, would you know it was coming out *next week*? Of course not. Nintendo manages to create a fanbase filled with people who know Nintendo will put out a good products, has a large amount of users who are kids with parents who will buy whichever game they want, and has already put their mark on the industry letting people know they exist. The Vita can easily come in and manage the same things, but at a different crowd, it's seemingly not happening.

    Is it bad that I prefer Nintendo to Sony?
    >_>
    I'm just thinking that Sony has been taking a lot of damage recently..

    Heh, I still have no idea when the actual date for the Vita release is. So you do have a valid point there.

    It's not bad at all. It's just personal preference.

    The First Edition bundle did, but not the actual system itself...I don't think...that gets released *google* the 22 apparently.

    Valwin should have included the link to the gamasutra article in the first place. And just to back up this did get reported in the japanese press, here's the link to the original japanese article from the Nikkei Shimbun:

    http://www.nikkei.com/tech/personal/article/g=96958A9C93819499E3E6E2E0878DE3E6E2E0E0E2E3E0E2E2E2E2E2E2;df=2;p=9694E3EAE3E0E0E2E2EBE0E4E2E7

    And here's the pertinent text:

    Translated by yahoo, it reads:

    The story's real. But too much is being made of it. What else is new?

    Really, rage every single time? *sigh*
    Anyway, I just going take it with a grain of salt.

    Good point. I didn't know when it launches. At times I thought it had released already.
    This too.

    the 3DS has been around for a awhile. now that the vita is a week away from release (some have it now) now the wanna go back to the 3DS? i would like it if they worked on both, but i dont really care because all i want is to be able to play more powerful updated emulators on these consoles, and for the 3DS a way to disable the regional lock so i can get Kingdom hearts dream drop distance next month! XD if that happens, i will be completely satisfied! But hey, whatever they wanna do.
