  1. HAHAHAHAHA , the japanese KNOW!!!!! THE JAPANESE KNOW !!!!!!.
    the UK and USA charts are disgusting .
    spors games , shooters , lego trash and other horrible games .
    Nintendo are just the world’s greatest Developer , publisher and Hardware makers .
    yes the 3ds is better than the vita .
    but it doesnt have as good graphics you say ????
    well this means developers can make TONS of awesome games for 3ds , whilst nobody can be bothered making psvita games because they dont want to put effort into an unpopular console .
    the vita is dead . with no big games coming in japan it will never catch up .
    and from what i have seen , COD vita and AC3 look like little watered down spinn offs.
    R.I.P vita , you have almost replaced the dreamcast .
    and thedreamcast was actualy awesome .

      1. That was hilarious, also the graph in the first post has made me give up hope for the Vita. I’m sorry, but the Vita is simply a portable Dreamcast in terms of sales. It is a good console, but it is just ahead of it’s time. Anyone who tries to defend its horrid sales is simply insane in my books.

          1. So ur not a fanboy right? Vita isn’t looking good fanboy or not facts are facts. Seems to me u can’t handle the fact that the Vita is failing or any negative news on Sony/Micro, but live to see negative news about Nintendo systems. If that isn’t “double fail” I don’t know what is. Why cause u son are a fanboy. Number don’t lie and to be doing worse then the Dreamcast…WOW..just Wow…I like Sony, but the Vita was just stupid and foolish on their part, they should have learned from PSP vs DS sells and the 3DS launch

    2. Hm… all the gamers play PS3 and Xbox games? I don’t see why not. There are plenty of good games out there. But to say Japanese devs suck, Japanese gamers have a bad taste in games… Maybe you don’t know, but Sony is Japanese as well, and it’s devs are Japanese devs! And to say they suck, well, I have to disagree on that. Let’s compare something that I’ve seen over and over on the internet: Zelda x Call of Duty discussions!
      The first is one of the most classical games, being a reference to the gamer culture. While it is based on the simple, yet charismatic story of the knight saving the princess, every game has it’s own personality, and they’re all full of puzzles and plot twists that make a real good story even better; no matter how old you are, you will always appreciate the plot! And the gameplay differs from console to console, making every platform have it’s own personal touch over the franchise.
      Now, Call of Duty consists of wars, where the plot is basically an excuse to shoot everything that moves on the screen. The gameplay is the same for every game, with difference over the weapons available. The multilayer consists on 10-13 years old boys yelling about sleeping with your mother every minute of the game.
      The first one is made by Japanese developers, and the second one is made by western developers.
      Well, I know you’re nothing more than a troll, but I just had to say it.

          1. By your standards alone.
            But then again, your standards, and logic, are that everything Mario sucks and that Nintendo as a whole is basically the same simply for owning the franchise.
            You don’t own the game and you hate the franchise and the company, so your opinion is too biased and hater-based to give the game a fair chance.

            TLDR: The opinion of a hater such as yourself, who has never played the game, doesn’t mean jack shit.

                ENJOYING A GAME DOES NOT MAKE YOU A BRAND LOYALIST, YOU MIND-NUMBINGLY RETARDED FUCK WAD.
                You’re a vocal minority from a user base built by haters, for haters, and therefore shouldn’t be opening your mouth regarding quality of this game.
                Again; your opinion doesn’t fucking matter on this issue, to anyone but yourself, so KEEP it to yourself.
                Also, since you’re obviously too moronic to see the differences between a game in 2006 and a game in 2012 simply because they are from the same series, you would be better off refraining.
                You’re so sickeningly stupid that you’re not even worth a further reply than this, so have fun responding to thin air. I’m not spending time better spent on gaming on your worthless, elitist, noobish, zit-covered troll ass.

Even the power ups are.

      1. The PS3 was never doing so badly as to rival the Dreamcast in such a low amount of sales. Plus, the PS2 was the most popular console in the world, and there were still plenty of games being made for it. The PSP, even though it has done well, was never as popular and there are less and less games being made for it now. The Vita is completely on course to be a second Dreamcast. Statistics prove it.

              1. Statistics will be proven if the course is followed, in it’s current state Sony has not announced a single title that has fans or new comers in a buzz, even the titles that have been shown that have gathered interest have not shown enough potential for growth.

                Statistics change with every move, but they are always proven when current figures play out, that is Sony’s warning to find a winning project to alter their handhelds “fate”.

                This by no stretch of the imagination means Sony will shut down support for the Vita, the Vita has followed a path traveled by the PSP before and all turned out just fine, not good, but just fine.

                1. Sony has announced PLENTY of support for the Vita, I’m not sure where the hell you’ve been the other week. How the fuck do you know what titles haven’t generated buzz?

                  1. Plenty and quality are two completely different things. Sony’s offerings so far have been lackluster and aren’t selling the handheld, it shows. Announcing watered down console ports and spin offs won’t save the Vita.

                    Killzone and ACIII:L are popular series that much is true, but the two alone are hardly going to drive sales for the handheld. Ratchet and Clank and Sly 4 on the other hand aren’t worth mentioning, the market for these titles have already made up their minds on the Vita and a game they can get on a console which will deliver a far superior experience isn’t a system seller.

                    Now with that said there is no doubt these games will boost Vita sales, but they don’t have a chance of reversing the overall downward spiral of the handheld. The Market is still on the fence for the Vita, $250 is a lot to pay for a handheld system that has expensive accessories and a lack luster library, there are great games on the Vita but hardly anything to bring in new customers.

  8. Vita sold less than 2.3M units worldwide after 9 months of being released is very pathetic. It is a disaster and a distraction for Sony which will haunt them this coming console war. The X720/Durango is gonna murder the PS4 this upcoming generation. Nintendo was smart to release it’s system first thus avoiding being a launch competitor to the other two. They also have the dedicated handheld gaming market in the bag outselling the competition this generation by an average 7:1 monthly, and lifetime sold 10:1; despite only an 8 month gap between the 3DS and Vita release.
