  1. Ugh. Japan get all the good games i swear. Wonder why it’s so hard to get western releases for third party Japanese games?

        1. You do realize that there is a difference between what you think is ”cool”, and what they think is ”cool”. Intolerant asshole.

        2. Rating a person’s maturity by the games they play is a move reserved for the most retarded elitists in the entire gaming community, and is grounds for being dismissed as a gamer entirely.

  2. WOW i knew mario will rise back again and sick down the vita. GO MARIO!!!!! On the hardware side when the wiiu is out we gonna see WII U at the top and 3ds second. WOW it’s a great year for Nintendo.

    Get N or get OUT!!!

          1. Yea but at least NINTENDO got the balls to drop it. WTF is sony doing? I am trying to sell my vita and nobody no want to buy it!!!! It’s just a pretty pussy but no dick want it. ha hahah ahha hah ah ah ah ah.

            1. Use your brain you idiot , they dropped the price and what did they do to thank the people that got ripped off?? Give them OLD games which you can just emulate on ROMS!! FUCKING LOL , atleast Sony isnt cheap as Nintendo and they thank their consumers unlike Nintendo which just give their fans inferior systems and crappy 3rd party support. Don’t say Sony overprices coz your too poor to buy their stuff

              1. I was glad to get the GBA games of the Ambassador Program. Sure I can emulate and use roms, but I want to play handheld games the handheld way, not on my computer.

              2. Oh yeah, they really thanked us with tons of Vita games that pushed sales of the system.
                It’s out-selling the 3DS thanks to all those wonderful games!
                Oh wait…..
                XD Damn, you’re funny. You’re just pissy that your precious overpriced spec monster is losing out to older games on a less technical system that it simply can’t beat.

              3. 1st They can reduce their price anytime they want without having to give us something. So it was them being nice
                2nd WHAT IF THE PEOPLE HERE PAY FOR THEIR STUFF instead of stealing them???
                Ever considered that? I do not download games

              1. Asshole please. The PlayStation Move is truly a Fisher Price product with fucking ball for you to penetrate in your hypocritical ass. Who the fuck want to afford the PS Vitanic at full price with an inferior 3G and highly expensive data plan?

          2. “Sony overprices”

            I believe a certain company said that people will get a 2nd job to own a certain console. My memory is a little blank can you help my out? I remember also some guy saying RIIIIIIIIIIIIDDDGEEEEEEEEEEE RACEEEEEEEEEER to if that helps you out.

            1. lol…………dwl i remember that. lol……. I was like WTF??? Who gonna pay that much? lol……… stupid sonydrones.

          3. sony sucks face it drones playstation died with ps2 and the psp. the ps3 is by far the worst system ever i brought 2 ps3 phat and slim and they both burned out ylod and i refuse to buy another one the ps vita is a piece of shit with freezes lags and overheating issues i’m glad i sold that shit and brought my self a 3dsxl. my days with sony is over r.i.p playstation your day is near. lmfao

          1. only not nearly as well as nintendo. the PS3 is a very noticeable 30 million behind the Wii in lifetime sales, and the vita… well it speaks for itself on a weekly basis. when the 3DS hit 7 million in japan, some people legitimately started to wonder what would happen first: the 3DS hitting 8 million or the vita hitting 1 million. something to think about

  3. fuck the ps shita , it will never be successfull in the japanese charts , i mean if you do some research the japanese games coming for the 3ds are huge and overwhelming .

    the only chance at number 1 spot ps vita has is PSO2 . that is all . and it comes out near monster hunter 4 so it will get crushed by that …..

      1. sad but true ….. there is a ps vita , pre owned in the trade in post near me for £140 (absolout steal) and i have MORE than enough money to buy it .
        i fucking loved my psp so it makes sense i should buy it right ???
        Wrong , the games are shit as of yet . i don’t really want to play uncharted GA that much and everything else is either A i own on the ps3 or is B = shit.

        my 3dsxl gets a new game bought for it almost every week ….. i have 24 3ds games and counting and they are 95% awesome :)

    1. Hypocrite much? First you said you had a vita and you loved it but it didnt have much games , now your saying it’s shit? Pure fanboyism at its finest , I bet you don’t even have a vita because your too poor to buy one , instead you mommy got you a 3DS HAHAHA

      1. I never said I had a vita , tard . nowhere have i said this . My big beother on the other hand had a vita . And i played Uncharted and Wipeout and stardust delta . and it wasn’t great . I hate the analogue sticks , they barely function at all ……

  4. the only thing that would have saved vita in japan is monster hunter but once again nintendo beat sony to the punch r.i.p vita you will see the same fate as the pspgo

          1. Whilst they are great company, there’s really no need to shout it like the gospel truth that they’re the best around…only makes you look just as bad as the others.

            All platforms are valid – it’s okay to like one more, but to claim that they’re all outright ‘shit’ because you don’t like them simply demonstrates a complete inability to think beyond yourself.

        1. Thank you so much. Whats with all the sony hate? If anything hate on Microsoft. Hell Xbox Japan aint even gettin Metal Gear Rising because Xbox hardly exists in Japan

            1. Well not sayin Xbox sucks, they actually have some really good games. I just dont believe in their outlook on business. And I’m glad Japan doesnt either. Just personal bias I suppose

      1. and the last game each of them worked on came from the vita. at this point i’m just wondering:

        is sony digging the vita’s grave or is the vita digging sony’s grave?

      1. Why talk about ps3 on Nintendo site? GET OUT SONYDRONE !!! SONY IS SHIT !! NINTENDO IS THE BEST !! Wii IS BETTER THAN PS3 :.GET N OR GET OUT !

          1. Then why are u talking about gay Sony ? Typical Sonydrone , Nintendo is better than shit CLONY !! Sony sucks nintendo rocks ;) Wii is better than Ps3 GET IT THROUGH UR HEAD YOU SONYDRONE !!

          1. You mean when those explosives are going off?
            Yeah, i did a new york minute run on that level, and the guy never showed up. The last fucking guy. I actually gave up on the game after that xD

      1. Please tell me you’re just trollin. Every system has their weak points and strong points. How you utilize them determines your experience with them

            1. First of all, please stop using caps. Second, ” You PS Shita”, you mean that I am a PS Vita? What? And last. I don’t even own a Vita. U mad, bro? :)

              1. The funny thing is your usernameis nintendogamer xD the guys an idiot.

                Also, sweet borderlands 2 gravatar, ive got mine waiting to downloadon release date, gona be the Mechromancer :3

        1. But the wii is the besT you sonydrone, everything else sucks , PLUS MARIO IS BETTER THAN ALL OF SHIT SONY EXCLUSIVES !!FUCK GAY SONY !

    1. Fanboys love hating the Vitanic.
      Competition is good for the business it forces you to try to get your hardcore fans back.$ony overpriced that device&mc it really would get more sells if they lowered the price. BTW the 3DS had 2 names on that list!

    1. Sadly, no. Seems like some people just dont have lives. That or they either not banged a chick in some decent time or they have never seen pussy besides the one they popped out of

  5. FUCK SONYDRONES , Nintendo is better!!! Wii is better !! And vita is shit !! And ps3 is for kids !! NINTENDO IS GOD !! SONY SUCKS !!

    1. He’s purposely makin Nintendo fans seem bad. Dont fall for it, he’s obviously some troll in disguise tryin to give us a bad name

      1. I find it sad that someone would type up an alternate name just to do something like this.
        How uneventful and meaningless must his life be, to go to the trouble of doing that just to post idiotic messages like that?XD

      2. Alas, one did reply to this charlaton above…but at least we pointed out the idea that all platforms are valid instead of simply one whilst we did – still, we blame having distractions preventing us from thinking clearly!,
