PS Vita is now crushing Nintendo’s Wii U

A fascinating drama is playing out in Sony and Nintendo’s home market — the PS Vita has found a new lease on life, while the Wii U continues flatlining. (3DS, Microsoft, Nintendo, PS Vita, PS4, Sony, Wii U, Xbox One)

Sony's last handheld vs. Nintendo's last console.

@ disagrees
If Sony cared about the Vita as much as they do about the PS4, it wouldn't have been completely ignored for 2 E3s straight.

The Wii U should have been released 4 years ago.

Nintendo should go handheld-only because the Wii U won't get the support from old ladies, like the Wii got.

I love when people say Sony ignored the Vita at two E3's. I wonder what those 30 some-odd games I played at this years E3 were all about...apparently my imagination.

@ sarshelyam
Maybe if Sony advertised those games, I wouldn't have to find out that they existed a month after E3, in the comments on N4G.

To the guy complaining about advertising, how many 3DS adverts do you see? How many Android game adverts do you see?

There is a lot of math that goes into determining the value of add campaigns and companies tend to follow the numbers. If it's a big time game they get it out there everywhere, if it's not then it's more subtle, lower cost advertising.

Do most gamers not read gaming sites... Like this one? What, do you deem yourself and the rest of us a minority of savvy gamers? Get real.

rpd123  +   411d ago
Would've been great if they, I don't know, showed them during their stage time. Games on the floor equates to an incredibly small amount of people knowing about those games. Also, the upcoming list is pretty weak. Mostly ports and indie games, with little to no big name support. And yes AAA support is necessary. If I wanted to play indie games I'd take out my phone and play some. Nobody buys a Vita for the indie support it gets. I love the Vita, but Sony is incredibly bad when it comes to promoting it and making sure it gets quality titles.

Yep, you nailed it. @GreenRanger so you only learn of games through advertisements? Funny I've never seen a commercial or posters/billboards for games like Journey, dark/demon souls I can go on. The point is the last I checked Sony isn't a marketing firm. It's up to the publishers to decide based on development budget if "advertising" the hell out of a game is worth it. They know that true gamers will know that the games are out there.

You always have the fanboys clamoring on different levels. The Nintendon't crowd will always there. Older gamers are fixated on blood and guts and graphics. It doesn't matter what Nintendo does, WiiUselessness is a must to help make things better for Sony and MS.

These guys think that Nintendo needs to conform and make games on their consoles, with the same controllers, for decades on end. They've made up their mind and now it's crunch time.

I fail to see what Sony and MS has done that PC doesn't do better.
XisThatKid  +   410d ago
@Benjaminkno
Sell games. It's been a long time that PC game market has been getting alot better as the same goes by but console sales in game software trump pc for decades. Also compatibility every PS3/Xbox game I buy will work on my system this is not the same with every PC owner without upgrade or OS differences. This is why console is a viable market although slumping due to increase in tablet and phone stuffs

MysticStrummer  +   411d ago
I want to see more than cross and remote play with Vita and PS4, but it's a good start and if devs make them interact in interesting ways I'd certainly pick up a Vita.

PS4 first though.
PsychOff  +   410d ago
They have said several times now that TGS and Gamescon is all about PS Vita and PS4. Just maybe before everyone jumps to conclusions they should wait to see those first.

Then if nothing is shown there you can go back to saying everything you have been. No doubt the PS Vita will sell a little more with PS4 but I highly doubt Sony is completely banking on the PS4 to sell them.

That would just be a really stupid business move to rely on the PS4 to sell it alone, clearly that isn't the case.

Good games exist and are coming for the Vita, why people constantly ignore them and say stuff like this is beyond me but that is the world I suppose. Not meant to ever fully understand.
Mariner1  +   410d ago
They didn't IGNORE the Vita, they only have a allotted amount of time and they didn't have an extra hour to talk about the Vita which would not have been hard to do.
sarshelyam  +   411d ago
There were simply too many games across all three platforms to mention in one pre-E3 show. They said there'd be over 30 Vita games on the floor...you didn't hear that part, or did you choose to ignore it.

Yes, I understand you have to do some of the legwork here, some research, but missing the mention or simply not taking the time to look up what they spoke to doesn't bolster your argument.
GreenRanger  +   411d ago
@ sarshelyam
I'm talking about post-E3 advertising.

There are a lot of Vita games that I didn't even know existed until I browsed PSN.

It's Sony's job to make people aware of these games, and they're not putting any effort into it.
abc1233  +   411d ago
Why would Sony put money into advertising games which will inevitably sell relatively little? Go do some research, Sony shouldn't have to put billboards up of every Vita game in development for you to realise that they exist.
SilentNegotiator  +   411d ago
I've seen cock fights with headless chickens more interesting and competitive than "Vita vs Wii U"

They both have absolutely foolish directions (expensive handheld in time of many people owning a handheld and successor to one of the most successful consoles of all time, with nothing learned from what made it so popular) and they both seem to think that throwing the same old IPs at gamers will save it.

Lol all of the 3ds' best selling games are the same old and extremely tried IPs. All vita and Wii U need are price cuts and more exclusives. Like Nintendo shot the Wii U in the face by announcing Smash bros an the 3DS. And Sonic lost Worlds will only have mp for the 3ds. Two less reasons to own a Wii U if you got a 3DS.
Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II  +   410d ago
@silent

The wii was fraudulentley successful and that wont happen again its a disgrace that console almost sold ps1 numbers.
SilentNegotiator  +   410d ago
@Pope

They only sold so many copies of games like Mario Kart Wii (~35M) because they had a massive install base from getting the system into so many homes.

IF they had learned from that technique of appealing to such a broad audience, Nintendo could have sold similar numbers on their own software. But now they will likely not even sell half as many copies. And third parties will mostly get mediocre sales on it (but that's expected for a Nintendo console these days, unfortunately).
chrismichaels04  +   410d ago
Certain people can continue criticizing the Vita but the reality is the PS Vita continues to slowly but steadily increase in sales. The Vita may not drop as many games as the 3DS, but Vita games continue to impress with quality must have award winning titles like Tearaway which won this years "GCA E3 Best Portable/Handheld Game" award.

Sales is the only thing I'm misssing : ? i don't understand, are these sales DLC for a game ?
PopRocks359  +   411d ago
I don't think dedicatedtogamers was trying to say the Vita was useless...

More like, it's doing less badly in sales than it was previously and he's happy it's improved somewhat. I don't see what in his comment made you feel the need to justify your purchase of a Vita.

TongkatAli  +   411d ago
Pops it may appear I'm trying to justify it, but I got it really good. This isn't a opinion that i have it good. I'm speaking for myself so disagrees can kiss the whitest part of my ass.

Vita has a Xbox live type of communication on a HANDHELD, with good fighting games, good shooting games, good rpg games, good monster hunting games, good indie games, good racing games, good sandbox games, PSP games, Ps one classics good smartphone games, good exclusives and an above par OLED screen.

The bubble OS is soooo underrated too. It's a handheld that can have a shitload of backgrounds each swipe up . The gaming community need to justify not buying one not me who owns one, for real.

Forget to mention Dual analog sticks FTW! See how many pros i listed what is the other sidse argument " I'm broke", riiiigggggghttttttt.

The 3DS is competing with the Vita. The Wii U will be competing with the next gen consoles (and will fail).

And again, this was just Japan that the Wii U was outsold. It's a different story worldwide.

What released on Wii U this week compared to Vita? Oh. Nothing. Oh. It's like some of you are living in your own fantasy worlds, where the Wii U with no new releases is supposed to outsell a system with a new release.

I'm glad to see the Vita doing better (Toukiden is apparently selling really well in Japan). Of course Wii U sales in Japan are not going to be great, they haven't released anything for it and they will continue that way until they release some games for it. I'm curious to see if Pikmin 3's release next week will have any impact on sales. As someone who loves the Pikmin franchise I'll be the first to admit, they aren't exactly system selling games, but we'll see if it can give the Wii U a boost next week.

Also this article is from BGR, the same folks who claimed that healthy sales of the 3DS was a bad sign for Nintendo because it will delay their move into mobile sales for iOS. I felt stupid just typing that out.

If VGChartz is any source to believe, The Vita has been very slowing gaining momentum in weekly sales, whereas the Wii-U isn't even outselling the Wii atm, which is also doing horribly. This past week, Vita outsold Wii-U by 10K + units, and that's about the average it's been for a while now. Wii-U is doing really bad right now.

@Kos-Mos They probably are, but even so, if the Wii-U numbers are undertacked, it's highly likely that the Vita numbers are too, meaning Vita is most likely still selling better than Wii-U. No need for a drawing board here.

3.5 millions to be exact not 4. The PS3 at $600 sold that in just 2 months and 12.6 millions total in 12 months. That the PS4 will outsell the Wii U in pre-orders alone is pretty much a given based on the fact that PS3 at a higher price and weak launch did it.

Thing is everything they do make is really cheap compared to everything else hardware wise. It has always been like this.

It really can't be an insult to a company when that is simply what they themselves decide to do every time. Why blame people for having eyes or knowing about technology?

It really isn't that hard to figure out their devices are cheap. They are durable though, I will give them that.

The 3DS is a perfect example having no second analog stick and its price being cut so heavily so early on. Clearly that shows they do in fact make them pretty cheaply, to be able to cut the price like that without much thought.

I guess reality is just too hard for some to face. I own a Wii U, I own a 3DS XL but I am not going to sit their and lie to myself about them either. They have their down sides just like anything else in the world.

What upsets me is Nintendo has done very well for a long time, making the most money. Oddly their devices are always so cheaply made which I don't understand.

Here come all the disagrees just for being reasonable or like I said having eyes and a brain.

"Sony manages to nearly close the gap with 3DS — the most recent tally showed the 3DS at 45,000 units and the PS Vita at 34,000 units"

The most recent tally of JAPAN only (which is what they're talking about) is actually 39,000 3DS to 13,000 PS Vita. Worldwide it's 200,000 3DS to 33,000 PS Vita. That's no where near "closing the gap".

It's fine to talk about the WiiU's faltering sales, but to then try to convince people (with lies) that the PS Vita is not completely failing as well, makes this article nothing more than biased BS. This was either written by a fanboy or someone that was paid off.

Its very Sony-like: All fighting and FPS' and racing/sports. Very 17 year-old school boy. I'm a 36 year old man. I'm not defending the Wii U. I'm pointing out why I still won't buy a system that is great hardware that I want, but can't justify buying. NOT...ENOUGH...GAMES.

And So on etc.
If You would sum up all the games of Vita, There is an average of 2 to 3 games per month for its Library which is not bad as people would want it to be. Developing Games for Vita is Much harder and longer than the 3ds.

Demonsoul, nobody is arguing with what YOU consider good games... He was just saying that, when you go into a store, there's very little on display for vita. Maybe not where you live, because some areas will have different levels of product on display... But, apparently, where he and I live, the stores just have nothing in the way of games, on display for the vita. Around here, near Sacramento, the vita displays make it look like its on its last leg. Don't hate the people who see this type of stuff, it's not our fault the vita isn't selling well enough to stock more games. Fact is, the vita is selling poorly worldwide. One good week in Japan won't change that. And yes the wiiu is selling as bad as it deserves. No games either. So far the vita and wiiu are equall flops. No need to be defensive about that. Sorry, but defend it all you want, with long lists of awesome games. It's still not selling. No matter how hard you try. And your long list of games isn't adding any to store shelves either. Sorry. The shelves are still empty.

The author of this article states this like handhelds don't routinely outsell consoles in Japan.

Gotta push his/her agenda somehow I guess.

This news doesn't help PS Vita at all... does PS Vita crushing the Wii U make it suddenly boost up and crush everything else? We still need more good games here, Killzone and Tearaway are 2 but that won't be enough, but we're surely gonna see some good stuff at Gamescom, so just stop saying the Wii U did better or will get better AND stop saying the Vita has no games this has been around since launch and it won't work anymore Vita is getting tons of games now.
So can we go and enjoy and support the system we love without having to hate on each other?
Subzero200  +   411d ago
lol crushing? a system that hasn't even been out a year? wow some people on the net have no life.

Even if the Vita was crushing the Wii U (which is inaccurate given neither platform is exactly selling very quickly and the Vita has been out longer to boot) would it even matter? This headline makes it sound as if Vita outselling Wii U is that big a deal. Shouldn't it be comparing sales to the 3DS? You know, its direct competition?

Either way, it doesn't make much difference. No matter how you shake it, right now neither the Wii U nor the Vita are selling well. Both need to improve; whichever one sells more is completely irrelevant to both of their futures.

Console vs handheld
This just in, Food is selling more than Video Games. The Video game industry is over.

You really can't compare the two. They are two different items. It should be 3DS vs Vita or Wiiu vs PS3.

The Wiiu is still off to a slow start. I think by the holiday season, it will pick up.
sincitysir1  +   411d ago
Yeah that's what we all said about the vita "slow start". The wii u is a decent machine as is the vita but both fail to capture people with games. The few exclusives coming out will not increase the sales of the wii u or the vita. The wii u is a bigger 3ds minus the 3d and all the games are going to the 3ds. Both will have a strong fan base but it's a fan base that slowly grows.
Protagonist  +   411d ago
Well if you want to compare the Wii U to the PS3.

Here is this weeks Worldwide Hardware numbers.

PS3 - 133,230

Wii U - 22,135

and the PS3 still is gonna sell for years to come eating out potential Wii U buyers. Start eating that humble pie haters the Sony fanbase have eaten their share last gen and this gen.

Humble pie for all you b******

I love the PS3 as much as the next guy but why would you compare a console which has been out for quite some time, is considerably cheaper and has amassed a massive games library to a just released one?
MegaLagann  +   411d ago
Saying one is "dominating" the other when both are selling poorly is not a good argument.

(And before both Sony and Nintendo fanboys disagree this post to hell, remember that sales =/= quality. I'm not saying either system is bad, but if you think one or the other is doing fine then you're delusional)

sigh, in neogaf there is also a thread for this, and also here eh....

just give these systems the time it need to establish its library...
like a man it will grow from infant-child-teen-adult-old
its not like in just a few months all the great games will come out of it suddenly, let it grow one step at a time

have a nice day ^_^

Vita isn't crushing the 3ds though.
hazardman  +   410d ago
I dont know why you got disagrees. The Vita will never do 3DS numbers.

On topic tho if the strategy is gonna be to obviously support the selling systems, Nintendo is
gonna have to start pumping out some games asap. I cant believe Nintendo(one of all time favorite game company)is the position its in with WiiU. Is a move like Sega best for Nintendo? Its not what i want, but if it saves Nintendo in the long run...Do it!!!!
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   411d ago
I sold my vita a few months ago and haven't regretted it since. It's a good system but just not my thing. Maybe in a few years...nah who am I kiddin ill never buy a vita again.
TwilightSparkle  +   411d ago
You and me both I sold my vita to but got a ps3, and not getting it back unless they announce kingdom hearts for the vita.
Loki86  +   411d ago
I just got my Vita 3 days ago, I literally can't put it down. Amazing handheld, with PS4 remote play it will be so much sweeter. That I picked up the Vita, Persona 4, and an 8 GB memory card for $150.

This article is stupid. Why the heck would you compare the Vita to the Wii U? It's apple and oranges.

I own a Vita by the way. I don't own a Wii U.

The Vita is dead, and the Wii U is on life support. Wii U still has a chance before it flatline. Keywords: still has a chance.
demonsoul  +   411d ago
I think You Mean If The Vita is Dead, Then The Wii U's Already descended to the Heaven after it's Death :D. Vita Means Life and It was Revived ;)
PigPen  +   411d ago
A year and a half on the market and only sold 5 million handheld hardware worldwide, the Vita is very much dead. 8 months for the Wii U and the lights are dem. If you're thinking the Sony Vita still has a shot to success, then you're the failure.
AdvanceWarsSgt  +   411d ago
Stop being a damn fanboy. If the Wii U is dead, then so is the Vita, because it hasn't sold well at all despite what you want to believe.

The Wii U is only 7 months old and Nintendo hasn't released one major title on the system yet and you think it's dead? Well you're in for a treat come this holiday lol
demonsoul  +   411d ago
Sorry, Wii U ain't gonna do better than the Vita In the coming Years.just 3 million for 8 months as a next gen console is already a failure. sad to say but Wii u Ain't gonna do better when the PS4 and x box 1 already make their debut :_). I do feel before the end of these year, Wii u will barely even sold 5 milion.

Stores are still taken PS4 preorders. Every bundle is available, but the standard (+console +controller -no game). In fact, I won't be surprise if it have a slow start too. I think the current gen (Xbox360/PS4) will be the true winners.
