Maybe ur game Call Of Duty Declassified can help the Vita....Oh that's right....it SUCKED!

Darn right. But you know what? It is their loss. CoD will have a bad reputation on Playstation as a whole this year anyway since the PS3 version was poor.

HAHAHA... if only you could tell him that. It'd be even better. If only they made it like normal COD, it'd be acceptable.

Except they didn't make it; nihilistic did. Because Activision never had any real faith in the Vita and opted development to someone else(or sold the rights to Sony, who handed the project to Nihilistic)

It was crap because they don't believe in the system enough to actually support it. This could also be why there was no 3ds CoD this year despite yearly ds installments up to this point.

(I disagree with his assessments personally, though I do believe western consumers and devs historical negative opinion of Handhelds is reaching an all time high and that will undoubtedly affect how they perform here. Just commenting on the potential mindset at Activision)

Congrats on your opinion idiot that's more or less a carbon copy of the other crap I've read on the subject.Can't wait to read your opinion after the Wii U and 3DS outsells everything like mad...i doubt you'll be herping and derping about devices killing Nintendo then.

Don't you mean Vita and 3DS. Because he mentions nothing about the Wii U. The Wii U is fine, its a home console capable of things that Tablets and phones can't do, but with the WiiU gamepad it can do what a tablet and phone can.

So, why did you mention the Wii U again? You can also tell that he is wrong, the 3DS is selling well and both the Vita and 3DS have longer legs than a phone or tablet. A new phone and Tablet comes out every year, while handheld consoles come out every 5 or so years.

Mobile gaming and Gaming are two separate things. Neither one will destroy each other.

Mobile gaming is closing the distance really fast. For heavens sake 10 years ago we were playing soduko on our phones...look were they are now

In 15 years who know what this will look like....im guessing the two will melt into a single entity
