I personally think it doesn't deserve those sales since it an overrated handheld but congrats.

Bullshit. Nintendo's 3DS games are some of the highest rated in the industry. They deserve all the sales they are getting.

Well, I have a Vita. It might be a better piece of hardware and it does have some great games.( Persona Golden, Muramasa , little kings story, Killzone to name a few, but there are more )

However for the time being the release list for the device is very poor ( and I'm putting it mildly )

SO this month I put in a pre order for a 3DS. Which games like bravely default, Zelda a link between two world , Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei ( just to name a few ) it really doesn't matter if the hardware is not - that - good I Guess.

Having said that I do feel that the Vita deserves more AAA- releases.

Well deserved they released a ton of great titles in 2013 alone.
DarkBlood  +   489d ago

I just recently bought a 3DS. It sucks that some games that came out around launch are still full price but the games are worth it. I'm just poor right now and expect them to go down after a year and a half <_<

I'm really hoping for more coop based games. Monster Hunter I'm looking forward to getting. I wish a Dark Souls like game with coop came out on it >.<

Sorry the prices won't drop soon. The reason behind that is the quality of the games.

At last count, 93, they just really really love handhelds and everybody keeps buying tens of thousands each every week.

Also worth noting: some may have purchased several versions ( collectors editions ) of the 3ds.

Sometimes an opinion is better left unsaid.
but this is not one of those times :p

@TheLastVoiceOFsanity bite me.

It's a great handheld. Just cause you like one doesn't mean you should dislike the other. Is it behind 3DS? Obviously. Nintendo owns the handheld market. I'm pretty sure Borderlands 2 on Vita alone is a huge win and they have much more then that.

I so want that 3DS Zelda bundle... That means trading my blue 3DSXL to GameStop, then the hassle of doing that system transfer :/ I don't wanna lose my games. Please Nintendo do what Google/Apple does, make it more easier to transfer this really is going backwards not forward with technology.
