The Vita didn't do too bad! Just over 3,000,000 in 10 months. Give it time and it'll thrive in sales, all of the negative articles are hyperbolic tripe.

Are you kidding ,right?
Vita is already more than 1 year in Japan...Anyway,The Vita is selling worse than the Dreamcast sold in its first year, and combined sales of the PSP and Vita this year are less than the PSP alone last year. For reference, the PSP sold at more than double the rate of the Vita in its first year. Awn..

I'll never understand how stating facts will earn a person more disagrees than agrees.

The Vita is not selling well, worse than the Dreamcast at present. I'm not attacking it, I actually want a Vita, but it's a factual statement.

"PSP sold at more than double the rate of the Vita in its first year"

PS3 with 43% market share in 2012 is pretty good.

gonna get myself a new ps3 in a week or two(i sort of screwed up my 80gb fat while tampering with it).i just hope support for the ps3 doesnt dwindle to a trickle once the ps4 is announced .....been a great couple of years being a ps3 owner.
p.s just added a vita to the family.
happy gaming,merry x'mas and a happy new year to everyone :-)

I doubt support wil stop taking Sony's track record into account.

LOL tampering...I wonder...

I recently bought a Vita too. Great handheld. We bought a 3DS for our kids this Xmas and it doesn't compare to a Vita. The progress is pretty much nonexistant. They took a DSLite and added Miis and Wii online there....I mean you can play 3DS games on lite too....pretty much says it all.

Oh and VGC yawn! Never trust this BS site.

This shows you don't know jack... 3DS can play DS games... Not the other way round... -.-

Every console and handheld down.

Both handhelds up

Not really. It's the end of the generation, people don't want to buy a new console now when theres rumours of new releases next year. Handheld should've increased with vita tho, but for some reason the best handheld ever made is also the least popular :(

Sony fanboys everywhere... Cant even see in black and white that vita is doing very badly.

Time to ditch this idiotic site

So your upset that everyone isn't as incessantly negative as you? Or are you upset that the "Sony fanboys" aren't in fact aligned to Nintendo/MS?

I'm betting on the latter.

Either way, you really need to get your priorities in order, sunshine.
