Wii outsold both 360 and PS3 too, yet the Wii is rubbish PS360 gave the best gaming experience and online.

3DS is your choice if you just want to play 1st party decades old rehashed IP's. If you want adult games and more new surprising IP's then PSVita is the way to go.

A gamer plays games, not sales.

What? You're right, it did outsell the 360 but by a pitiful margin: 360 (2,817) Wii (2,963) but the PS3? (19,101). Where did you just pull that idea from?

I'll agree with you for now but i'm convinced the vita games will get better. i have only picked up 2 games for my vita uncharted and AC. I started to get cod buts a friend let my mess around with his and it's not for me.

"better"
is a subjective term. had you gone on to express why you feel its better would make more sense. Generalizing like that is somewhat pointless.

Appeal is different to everyone and as such there is no better or worse when it comes to personal preference.
Snookies12  +   763d ago
Game wise at the moment? Yes. Hardware? No.

Besides, it's all just preference anyway, what does it matter? I have a Vita, but would love to grab up a 3DS at some point. :]

Actually, no. If you're talking about the hardware, then Vita is better. More powerful and better online capabilities. As for games, that's subjective. It depends on one's preference.

I still cannot get my head round how nintendo just keeps dominating even tho it is very clear there hardware is the weakest. How someone will see a PSP2 with all the high-end features and games and still go for the DS.
NYC_Gamer  +   763d ago
Its because Nintendo has first party software that appeals to every type of gamer....
SuperShyGuy  +   763d ago
It's always been like that in the handheld market.

GameBoy with a green screen put down all challengers Lynx, TurboExpress and GameGear

GBA put down NeoGeo pocket and NGage

DS put down PSP

3DS is putting down Vita

You would have thought Sony would have learned from everyone else's mistake and realized superior tech doesn't matter
Mainsqueeze  +   763d ago
Because fun to most people isn't what type of graphics hardware can pull off. When compared to the 3DS the vita gets crushed in fun handheld experiences, IMO.
SegaKnuckles86  +   763d ago
Except superior tech and better graphics don't change the fact Nintendo games have much larger audience and more fans than Sony games. Something you are not comprehending for some reason. You cannot play Mario or Zelda on a Vita. People buy Nintendo hardware for MARIO AND ZELDA, not silicon chips on a PCB.
--Onilink--  +   763d ago
you know what, I cant even recall if there as ever been a generation where the most powerful won. The most that i could think of is the NES era, and there were probably some consoles more powerful.

Its stupid to think that the power of a console will determine how good it will be
The_Infected  +   763d ago
I guess Nintendo proves graphics isn't the selling point. It's only a small fraction of what a game needs and innovation also plays a key role.

"A gamer plays games, not sales."

Indeed. And currently, the 3DS has a much greater, bigger and more extensive game library, which makes it the choice of many.

The Vita's good, yes, but it really needs moar gaemz.

Yeah a library full of shovel ware and casual games. That is why the Wii sold so well and being much cheaper than the competition helped a lot as well.

IMO the Wiis library is pretty poor compared to the 360 and PS3 due to the lack of many great multi platform games.Like dishonored for example.

Is that a good library? 3DS is full of remakes from N64 games and sequels from DS games and thats it.

Too bad sales numbers directly related to how many games a system gets per year and are obviously related to the developer interest.

It's funny that a lot of people think games are for kids and hears you making comments about adult games.

Gamers play games so why would you make such dumb comments about rubbish, adult games etc? surely a true gamer who plays games can see the positive and flaws in any system and not limit themselves to one system, and if they did they would not make such immature, angry comments.

Gamers do play games which is why it is outselling the Vita which is a good system but clearly it's not offering them the experience or games people are looking for just as the psp was games from your ps2. why buy two of the same game?

Additionally, dont make a handheld and price it higher than your console.

Um the Wii didnt outsell both the PS3, and 360 combined.

Wii 97.18 million

Also the 360, and PS3 continue to gain on the Wii. When it is all said, and done they will finish much closer to the Wii then people expect; especially the PS3 which WILL pass the 360.

dboyman  +   763d ago
Sony alone is not to blame. Lets not forget some of those games are from 3rd party developers ( Crapcom, er Capcom for Monster Hunter, Square Enid for Final Fantasy). There doesn't. Seem to be enough. 3rd party support for the Vita. That and Nintendo first party support is what making 3ds sell.well. Sony is trying but what also Vita is more 3rd party support and GOOD 3rs party games.

The problem is 3rd party developers are not getting games for Vita until it sells more, but Vita cannot sell without the games. And cut the price on the Vita as well ( especially.those overpriced memory cards) . Sony is trying despite financial troubles, but they cannot do it alone. More developers need to get behind the PS Vita...
tiffac008  +   762d ago
But don't forget Sony is still supporting the PSP in the Land of the Rising Sun. That is why a lot of the 3rd party developers have no incentive to move the games they are developing for the PSP onto the Vita and not all of those games are Vita compatible and if they are (available by PSN) no one knows about it because they are not advertised as such.

Look at what Ninty did with the DS, once the 3DS was released. They stopped supporting the DS. Sony needs to make the same decision. This 10 year life cycle support thing may be showing its drawbacks. The Vita after all is their present and future product and not the PSP.

Capcom is just to greedy. I never noticed it until they made that move. At the time PS3 wasn't too well in sale.

Also the price to develop a game on ps3 and 360 was too high compared to Wii with last gen graphics (Ps2 like).

Less dev time and higher console count = larger profit.

why are these in comparison with one another. of course the 3ds is going to destroy other handhelds in sales. They came out with the 3ds a year ahead of the vita and I'm betting the most of those sales are people upgrading from a regular ds. Nintendo already had a huge customer base in the handheld market and sony is just now trying to break in. honesly comparing a 3ds and a vita is like comparing a ford escort to a lamborgini. They are both cars and can get you places but they arent in the same league really.

Really? Lambo's cost cost 80 dollars more than Fords these days? Fords and Lambos are the only dedicated cars available in the market these days? Please don't make stupid comparisons just so that you try make the Vita seem so much better than the 3DS.
Now that the 3DS is dominating the VITA suddenly they aren't competing handhelds anymore? Suddenly VITA exists on some higher out of reach plain on it's own?? Gimme a break!
violents  +   762d ago
@leroy

I never said those were the only cars in the world. But I bet ford escorts sold a lot more cars than lambos, but which one is the better car? That was my point. Just because one item does better in sales does'nt mean its a better product. Imagine in hard economic times everyone goes to the cheaper solution for on the go gaming, however people like me choose to invest the extra into more powerful and overall better equiptment because I value quality over cheap and easy. And honestly nintendo and sony have never really been pointed to the same demographic. Nintendo aims at children tween and the casual gamer. Sony and microsoft aim for older demographics and adults, who generally require more sophisticated hardware to be impressed. So I feel my comparison is pretty valid.

@jamieL

Sorry about your accident . I ride too thats gotta suck. but nobody asked which one was better. I know which one is better its just not the one that sells the best. I understand they are in competition but it seems rediculous to me to because its like comparing apples to oranges. DS sells better because its cheaper and more well known, thats the bottom line really. That doesnt equate to its the better of the two.

But see what he's saying is no matter how much more powerful the Vita is than the 3DS it doesn't put them in different categories, they are competing, if you can call this a competition. I don't care if the 3DS did come out a year earlier, since Vita dropped, 3DS sold more in the same amount of time. There's no way around it, the people want the 3DS more. What sucks is right before Vita came out I was in a motorcycle accident and lost the use of my right (dominate) arm, so I don't get to play either damn it. So quit bitching about what one is better and be f#%king thankful you're ABLE to even play anything.

One of the major problems with the Vita is that Sony still haven't figured out what they want the Vita to be. The people who buy a 3ds knows exactly what they're buying into and the type of support they're getting.

The Vita is superior to the 3ds in so many ways with a lot of potential, but Sony don't know how to properly support it or convince 3rd party devs to commit.

Ill say this, vita price cut that = 3ds current price would kill the 3ds.

One more thing ... I've noticed that this is the only time people compare the vita and 3ds. When they review or talk about upcoming games they NEVER compare them. Vita gets compared to ps3 or Xbox. 3ds get compared toooooo nothing really just a review of the game or whatever.

Why is that? I need an answer post haste.
ronin4life  +   763d ago
Once again, how would it "Kill" in sales when the lineup on 3ds outnumbers the psv 5-1 NOT INCLUDING. backwards compatibility?

And as to your question: game reviewers review games as they are. Those vita games(the ones that are reviewed poorly) are inferior or smaller packet samples of console games. They are directly modeled after them and not well enough to stand beside them, which is why they receive low scores. The platform has nothing to do with it and shouldn't anyway.
glennco  +   763d ago
maybe 3DS games are better for mobile gaming just like phone games are. pick up and play games appeal to a wider casual audience than cut down console campaigns. the 3ds is more casual/non-gamer-friendly. the vita is very specialised. i think there is still a market for such a device but just not as big a market.

just a thought
Kingthrash360  +   763d ago
Ok maybe kill was an overstatement but it would compete.
Also ss4? Mario? Kingdom hearts? These are console game that couldn't stand side by side with its console. Strangely ss4 gotta 8.9 for 3ds on ign but SFxT gets a 6??? Vitas take on porting sf was far beyond 3ds but the scores are far off. At the end of the day they are competing handhelds (I love them both btw) and while 3ds has a head start the vita is more advanced than the system. If they lower the price it will compete no question.
darthv72  +   763d ago
"Ill say this, vita price cut that = 3ds current price would kill the 3ds."
I would have to disagree. While i understand the thought behind your point you seem to miss out on a very important aspect. 3ds has what the vita does not. direct play for bc titles.

while it may not be the intention for someone to buy into a new system to play old games, you cant deny the benefit it offers. Vita and Bc is purely digital and for someone like myself who has a psp and a slew of UMD games, it offers me nothing in that regard.

As someone like me who also has a ds the 3ds can play my library of games just fine. a price cut would certainly spark interest but the overall problem sony is facing is managing multiple platforms at the same time.

If anything, nintendo has the ds and 3ds which the 3ds would likely outpace the ds. We are seeing the 3ds sales increase because it can do what the ds does AND more. We could see a similar trend with the wii-u but that is still to be determined.

So in my view, sony is like sega. Sega had at one time 6 platforms on the market AT THE SAME TIME. That was increasingly difficult to support. Sony right now has 4 which they really should change their focus to the only top 2 that are the ones they want to move forward (PS3 and vita).

They just dont know when enough is enough or more importantly, how to price things like digital psp games to be more disposable to people as an incentive to get the vita. The new ps+ will have some effect on the sales but we still will have the issue of them competing with themselves by continuing to support platforms that are past their prime.
tiffac008  +   762d ago
A price cut (and free memory card) would definitely help the Vita sell more but I believe at this point in time that no one can outdo the king of handheld gaming.

Ninty has been entrenched in the market for decades, that its automatic for people to buy their handheld gaming devices by just brand knowledge alone.

@darthv72

I agree with your statement about Sony supporting a product that is well past its prime. Continuing to support the PSP is hurting the Vita, especially in Japan. I think Sony believes they can do a PS2-PS3 scenario were the PS2 sold for years after the PS3 was released before dropping off. They should realize that the situation of the PSP-PSV is different. Very different.

These are Japanese numbers. The library in Japan is incredible with several big name titles. Here? Better than vita, but not that by that much and with few big hits. Those Japanese games are coming however, with even more yet to even be released in Japan.

And while the vita has minis and psp/ps1 games, the 3ds has several vc and eshop exclusives as well. Along with FULL backwards compatibility with all we games.

So yes, the Vita has far fewer games. Wether you like them is a matter of opinion, but that is the truth; the 3Ds has a much larger library

yea you are right the 3ds is backwards compatible wit ds but then i didn't buy a 3ds to play ds games on it i want to play 3ds games on my 3ds. re.revelations is a gorgeous game just wish other devs would push the hardware like capcom did sadly they dont so u get ds ports with the 3d gimmick on your 3ds . thats the type of crap there is . i do have a few eshop games too those are cool but thats it . and you forgot the vita has the whole psp library not just ps1 and minis just one question do you own a vita?

Great sales, Nintendo. I'd like some better games though. This Paper Mario sucks and Adventure Time is the only game I want.

People keep saying the Vita needs more games, but I bought four Vita games in the past two weeks. Also, PS Plus comes to Vita next week. Again, give me more reasons to keep my 3DS Nintendo. You're doing a great job of selling your system, but as a gamer, I'm more interested in playing video games.

There are loads of great games on the 3ds. Try again.
WeAreLegion  +   762d ago

Just play on the system you love the most without bashing the other out of pure hatred and/or jealousy...

Is that so hard to do?

Judging by the comments here, it's seems to be pretty damn hard.

The Vita just launched earlier this year in the states and in Europe. The media just needs to give it some time and quit always saying the Vita is dying. Not to hate on the 3DS, but so far what I see is more of the same as last generation and the generation before that.

Has anyone seen that 3DS commercial that featured that fashion designer and at the end of the commercial, she says her name and that "She's not a gamer, but with her 3DS, she can style all she want". What I'm saying is, so far I'm seeing some shovelware being released on the 3DS as of now and that Nintendo is doing the same tactics as they did for the DS. Sony on the other hand is trying to cater towards the hardcore still, but there are some titles that cater towards the casual gamer, but mostly the "real gamers" are getting in on a treat with the Vita.

So when is it a good time for the media to start reporting on the status of the Vita?

And you're seeing shovelware? Yet I'm seeing a ton of variety that made the DS very popular. 3DS has a large share of hardcore titles also. So the "real" gamers are also getting treated on the 3DS.

I find your statement funny, you're seeing some shovelware on the 3ds but on the Vita you only see some titles that cater to the casual gamer. Interesting how that works.

Then again I guess you only see what you want to see.
ShadowGhost  +   762d ago
Of course the Vita has casual games on it, but what I was saying was that the 3DS was showing those shovelware titles here in the states. Now in Japan, the real reason why the 3DS is outselling the Vita is because of Monster Hunter, Maro, and Pokemon. Once the Vita gets a killer game in Japan like Final Fantasy X remastered in HD and hopefully a Dragon's Quest or Monster Hunter on their own, then maybe there will be a different tide in sales, but until then, the 3DS has what Japan wants to play.
