Pinning All of Our Hopes on the Vita…for Better or Worse

GameXplain: "Unlike the PlayStation faithful, I didn’t think this past year was going to be so hot for Sony. It turns out that I made a good call, since 2011 didn’t go that well.

All of the usual suspects showed up, and sales were decent, but nothing looked that exciting to me. Perhaps I’m a jaded gamer, but this year didn’t get me going."

Sony released a whole bunch of games last year, but what you people don't realise or rather choose to ignore is that these things cost money and as we all know, ps3 exclusives aren't known for setting the charts on fire. Games like SOCOM 4, Resistance 3, inFAMOUS 2, Motorstorm A, Ratchet & Clank A4O. . .these things cost money and they under performed. Microsoft on the other hand made more revenue on xbox live gold fees than sony made on ALL PS3 retail exclusives released in 2011, true story.
May have been a great year for ps3 owners, lots to choose from and all, but stinkers like SOCOM 4, Motorstorm and Ratchet and Clank ate away at their profits.

well if the numbers of new people online this past holidays are any indication then Resistance 3 and Motorstorm Apocalypse did very very good because their online servers are full of new people , inFAMOUS 2 did very well and inFAMOUS festival is the fastest first party selling psn game ever anyways , i think the games had been profitable but some people always expect millions upon millions selling copies day 1 or even on the first month but those games will sell , i mean infamous 2 , motorstorm apocalypse , killzone 3 are part of the platinum selling games ( i wonder why ? )

Can't tell if trolling, or not a gamer.

This guy is full of shit. I predicted something and it didn't come true, but I'm going to ignore facts and pretend I was right all along. Right, so by your logic if I'm really into profits a huge corporation makes then I had a great year. However, if I am a gamer and enjoy choices and not only one or two big exclusives to choose from a year then it was a bad year. So this article doesn't even belong on a gaming site, it should be on an economics site. Doom and gloom, doom and gloom they say and I say shut the f&%$k up.

i`m gonna grab a vita this year...or the new razor gaming tablet.

and the psp and ps3 had great years...sure the xbox makes a ton off of gold members and great games like gearz. but who cares who made the money, as long as we get good deals!!!
