    1. Yeah, sounds like a japanese title. Probably a date sim with lots of Japanese comedy pertaining to A guy attracted to a cute sister he just met with Hilarious results. Weird…. yeah its pretty weird, but its not new. Games/Anime like that come out all the time. Check out Sakura Diaries for one….

    2. The Guy Who was Sealed in a Room with a Girl

      At least it’s not as bad as “If I were in a Sealed Room With a Girl I’d Probably XXX” for the 3DS.

  1. Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai Portable ga Tsuzuku Wake ga Nai (俺の妹がこんなに可愛いわけがない ポータブルが続くわけがない lit. There’s No Way “My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute Portable” Could Continue)

  2. Way to go Nintendo! If Sony doesn’t do something about the Vita(and fast), you can kiss it as good as gone.

    1. It’s from an anime called Ore No Imouto Ga Konna Ni Kawaii Wake Ga Nai (My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute). Despite of what it sounds from the title, the anime is pretty good and funny. No incest.

      1. Oh ok. Never heard of the anime but when I read the title, not gonna lie, knowing some of the anime they have over there, incest was the first thing that came to mind.

      2. The Guy Who was Sealed in a Room with a Girl

        More like a light novel; then, a manga; then, an anime.

        /end otaku mode

  3. what the heck? No.1 “My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute Portable Can’t Be Continuing”
    What kind of things are they into over there O_o

    1. The Guy Who was Sealed in a Room with a Girl

      A line from the show that best summarizes it; “anyone who fantasizes about a relationship with a sister has obviously never had one.” The franchise is just about a brother trying to be a… good brother. In case you’re messed up; no, there is no incest here at all.

  5. 1. My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute Portable Can’t Be Continuing…

    This is why i can’t take Japan gamers seriously

    1. The Guy Who was Sealed in a Room with a Girl

      You people are so messed up considering the games are so innocent. It’s just a brother trying to fix his relationship with his sister and being a good brother to her due to their decaying family relationship. Nothing more.

  6. of course nintendo is number 1 in japan. just like 360 is number 1 in the u.s. in terms of popularity that is.

  7. “[PSP] My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute Portable Can’t Be Continuing”
    damn japan U scary.

    1. That game is “Ore no Imouto”.. A famous anime in Japan.. It’s really famous out there and also here at PH. Of course a lot of Japanese people like anime and wouldn’t miss buying that game.

  8. I’m worry about Vita, even if come from the Yamauichi School of Thinking, the vita performance is… Simple Awful, the 3ds with the double of those number was under threat of not reciving Third Party Support, even if originally were basic to port(PS2 games) games, unless Sony do a ‘radical move'( a Price cut will not be seeing as desesperated but necessary) or a Bomb is dropped in the E3… i think the vita will not endure the next fiscal year(heck that would be a repeat of the Nomad Scenario with Sega.. the Irony…)

  9. I don’t really care about how well 3ds is doing in Japan because all where getting is boring add nephew and no real god or third person shooters in america so screw Japan

    1. Lol I did this message on my phone sorry all I was saying is 3ds in America needs some shooters like call of duty or metroid something other than jrpg never mind that last comment

  10. So glad to see that Fire Emblem is doing well and also that the 3DS is dominating. If Sony doesn’t launch a plan to save the Vita at E3 this year I predict that the Vita line will ultimately fail and be a huge blunder for Sony. If Sony talks more about the PS4 than the Vita then I also think that the Vita will be overlooked and thus fail.
