  1. PUT YOUR EYES ON THIS COMMENT AS THIS WILL EFFECT YOUR FUTURE! reply to this comment type in ‘SCREW SOPA!’ and remember to put the link at the very bottom of my comment to confirm your against it or just write a little comment. remember the few second sign makes a massive difference to you, me and internet and everyone using it even non Americans. DONT FORGET TO CLICK THE LINK AND SIGN IT!TO FIND OUT WHAT THIS STUPID SOPA THING IS ABOUT LOOK AT THIS LINK!!

      1. Everyone When i comeback in 30 Minuites i expect the replys to the sign to be at least 10. Do It for internet and Sickr!


        1. Wow… Porno websites will be hard hit and banned.

          Thing i hate most is Wikipedia maybe gone, I got stuck on that darn thing on wikipedia 4+ times today now for searching things like…. MW3, MW2, Wii U, Wikipedia,

          And wikia for trying to get to…. Metroid wikia, COD wikia,

          Screw you SOPA.

    1. It’s weird, apparently the Vita was not successful so it did not sell well.

      But your looking at PS3!!!! PSP is 22,000 while Vita is 18,000

      1. you’re saying “was” like the vita is dead and is done. It hasn’t even reached the U.S yet, and what I hate the most is when Nintendofanboys say it has failed. you hated when people said the 3DS was going to fail, but because it’s a sony product it’s ok -_-

        1. I don’t think at all that’s it’s a failure. In my opinion, it could have had a stronger launch if it came to western markets first. Just look at the launch games, they look like they were MADE with the western market in mind.

        2. Dude, the 3DS NEVER hurt that bad, and you better hope to hell the US release increases sales… Because if it doesn’t do 10x better, Vita is Fucked.

      1. since you post on playstationvitalife, I’ve been wondering, have you imported a PS Vita or are you waiting for U.S launch?

          1. At least you’re not one of those fanboys who downright hates it for no good reason. I can respect different opinions, but fanboys are just annoying. Can’t wait for Feb. 22, my 3DS will have a new buddy :)

  2. Poor PHony. Thinking a handheld with only upgraded graphic, no games, high priced with no membory card included will cell. Poor PHony has allot to learn from the KIng!!

      1. lol i’m just kidding, why do you people feed troll comments. Don’t feed trolls.
        I’m a nintendo fan, yes, but even i can see the wii is a dust collector. I’ve played wonderfull games on it, but ps3 is an overall way better system.
        I’ve bought a 3ds yesterday and i love it. i don’t see myself buying a vita now, maybe when it gets better games. I’ve become dissapoint in ps3/xbox mainly because they have 2 many shooters.
        Would like to see more stuff like rayman origins on it

    1. Oh **** this is a joke however this is what the internet will be like soon.

      If SOPA passes…. Bye bye wikipedia and i may remove all my infomation from the internet as security will be a lot lower.

      No wonder people don’t like the US laws.

        1. See the Urgent SOPA thing towards the top of the comments page.

          PIPA also is to blame meaning that people will be tracked more on the internet. The DNS also is a key thing.

          SCREW THAT!

  4. Yay for the declining sales of generic shooters! :D

    [PS3] Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – Dubbed Edition (Square Enix)

    what is Square Enix doing wit CoD anyways?

      1. Sigh……..Treyarch and IW are American companies. In order to localize a game in japan, They need a japanese company to subtitle, and later dub it, and I guess Square Enix Took the job.

  5. Etecoons and Dachoras

    I mean I’m not a Sony fan at all, but wow I never thought I’d see the day where the Vita is stumbling HARD in Japan! How long before third parties start moving resources and games from the Vita over to the 3DS?

    Good for you, Nintendo! I can’t begin to imagine how crazy the sales of the 3DS will be once the new generation of Pokemon games are released! The 3DS is on FIRE! (in Japan, anyway)

  6. Wow… NO vita games……… The vita’s really taking it hard in japan isn’t it? I do hope they make a recovery… And I don’t see it getting any better over here.

  7. Sadly, I never really cared for the Vita. I kind of see it as just an updated PSP.
    Correct me if I’m wrong (I don’t know much of its details) but the all trailers I see of games for it only see to use fingers on the touchscreen.. which I do with DS/3DS anyway when I don’t have a stylus. What’s so special about it? (No seriously, I know there has to be something special about it)

    I’d love to see the Vita do well though, because I always quite liked the PSP, and…
    More competion = More games/good stuff for the 3DS. :)

  8. Who the fuck are the morals police to tell me what I could and can’t watch on the internet? Fuck them! The internet is perfect the way it is.

      1. It means lot’s of stuff would be censored including wikipedia part’s of youtube and all prono sites.

        My Nintendo news could go.

        They don’t do what they say, they are going to do much worse. they do more bad then good.

  9. Now only if it did well outside of Japan. Everywhere else in the world the 3DS is just “meh”

    I’m really surprised that you didn’t report that game informer rated the wii and 3ds worst of 2011 game wise. In their top 50 games the only ones that made it were SM3DL and skyward sword. They also rated the 3DS the worst launch of all time. A lot of stuff nintendo people would find “controversial”

    1. 3DS is not “meh” everywhere else in the world you are really wrong, then again you are most likely a Sony fanboy. As for the worst launch ever they should have seen the launch of the Vita now that’s a “meh” and keep this in mind if its doing that bad in japan it will do worse in other parts of the world.

  10. Well what can I say? The 3DS in Japan at least has some sweet games. There is little reason not to have one over there.

  11. the first month of nintendo 3ds were bad, but psvita have had horrible sale performance since its second week. I think psvita could fail.
