What Japanese Gamers Have to Say About The Cheaper PS Vita

The PS Vita is doing much better these days. The game library is still not as robust as I'd like, but I don't get depressed so much when I check the Vita section of my regular game store these days.

The story is too old to be commented.

In Japan, the PS Vita is by far the more popular portable

I love the Vita but no it isn't, not even close.

Except for the fact that it's not.

Dan_scruggs1842d ago

LOL wut? You apparently live in a bubble. The 3DS is far more popular.

I haven't said anything what the heck?

If only people knew how awesome the Vita really is compared to the 3DS. The 3ds does cater to the young at heart. Since i'm 27 Vita is my all time favorite handheld i've ever held.

The fun level for me..

3DS fun level about a 2, while Vita is a whopping 4 out of 5 on fun level. Plus it's futureproofed.

Once people know, the numbers will show. The 3DS has nintendo games, while Vita has crossplay, PS1 and PSP games, mobile games, and tons of great games out or soon tba.

Sales will pick up, no doubt.

uhh...go check the 30 million 3DS's sold compared to the 4 million Vita's.

Have you ever done math before ?

Vita will sell more once it gets more quality games.

Fergusonxplainsall1842d ago

I got a Vita and 3DS. I have bought more games on the vita then i could ever want on 3DS.
There's the cross-play games,PS classics, mobile games and great PSP games like all the GTA's.

Think about this, i bought Sly Cooper(great game),EDF, DOA,MLB 13, NFS most wanted and Soul Sacrifice all for the Vita. For my 3DS this year i only bought Luigi Mansion.

Then i got PS plus which gave me Gravity Rush, Uncharted GA, Jet Set Radio, Wipeout and a ton of fighting games:D to play.

Yeah and I only expect even more awesome for Vita at E3.

PS Vita + PS4 = A future proof handheld setup.

So how many price cuts did the 3DS get until it started picking up steam? How quickly gamers forget that 3DS was sucking big inflatable balls not too long ago and checkout the comments section, man people were pissed back then. xD

Once Sony drops the price and lowers the cost of memory cards you'll see a quick turnaround.

"Nintendo posts earnings, drops 3DS from $249 to $169 August 12th, current owners get 20 free games."

Erimgard1842d ago

Sony DID drop the price of the Vita in Japan. It sold great for two weeks afterwards (around 60K units two weeks in a row) and since then it has been selling around 20K a week.

The 3DS is selling at a pace of around 70K a week in Japan.

But the Vita is still young. It has time to establish itself if Sony brings quality titles to it.

I'm pretty sure he's just trolling you guys lol

kamakaz3md1842d ago

haha, i like all the disagree's you got as if everyone on this site lives in japan and knows how well the vita is doing in that country... people need to get a life, and stop crying, just read the persons opinion, and dont give a negative reply, smh.

Erimgard1842d ago

It's not an "opinion" if it can be factually proven wrong. Japan's sales are released weekly, and as I stated above, the 3DS is selling around 70K a week and the Vita (since its price cut) is selling around 20K a week.

And some people still say that the Vita has no games.


P.S : I personally dont believe that but i can understand why some people say it. And thats because it doesnt have Monster Hunter or Nintendo games.

3-4-51842d ago

The games that are available though...aren't for everyone and don't appeal to everyone, hence why thery aren't being bought like you and other's think they should.

End of 2013 you will start to get exciting news about Vita's future in terms of games.

Hicken1842d ago

No console's entire library is for everyone and appeals to everyone. The Wii has been the number 1 seller for most of this current generation, but had precious few games that appealed to me.

Comparatively, what IS available on the Vita is pretty wide-reaching, in terms of variety.

It's not that we believe the games should be bought up in any particular quantities. It's that perpetuated falsity that there are no games to buy. There is, arguably, something for everyone, if only one game. Puzzlers, racers, platformers, fighters, rpgs. It's all there. Whether an individual personally likes them is a different story, as is whether a person even gives them a chance, like CommonSenseGamer doesn't.

I agree that the system is just getting warmed up. Still, it should be rather evident that some people just don't WANT to admit there are any games worth playing; those are the most vocal around here.

DEATHxTHExKIDx1842d ago

Sounds like ppl want more games.

imXify1842d ago

PSP's best selling games series aren't on Vita yet...that's why.

Tultras1842d ago

The ONE thing that stops me from utilising my vita are the memory cards.

I got a vita as a gift, but I haven't used it because the memory cards are too damn expensive.
