DQ Builders =adrenaline shot to Vita...hope to continue that way

well in all fairness the Vita does pretty well in Japan, it is everywhere else it is suffering.

If it wasn't for the Japanese market I think Sony would have buried the Vita by now.

In all fairness Vita is not even doing well in Japan. Neither is 3DS

Neonridr1020d ago

@Stealth - yeah ok, the 3DS has sold more than 20 million units. I'd say that's pretty good.

Sure it hasn't sold as well as the DS did, but the PS4 hasn't sold as well as the PS2 did but that doesn't mean it's a failure. And when the 3DS really only has one other handheld to compare itself to, I would say it's done pretty well.

They need to bring DQ Builders outside of Japan as well!!!! They're shooting the me eleven in the foot if they don't. It has a lot of potential to hit big.

Bought DQB and Odin Sphere(and Tokyo Xanadu) for vita last month. All 3 games are amazing. So many awesome games for vita In Japan.

Vita gets slightly more exclusives in Japan than the rest of the world gets, but it does not change the fact that Vita's library is god awful.

yuukiliu1020d ago

What planet do you live on where the vita has a terrible library of games? Why are you here if you just wanna bash something people enjoy? Such sad people on the Web.

Stealth20k1020d ago

The system has no exclusives......The Vita's library is worse than any Sony system.
