Kyle of Teh Pwn Gaming writes:

Despite boasting a hugely compelling launch library and the most advanced hardware of any handheld to date, the Sony PlayStation Vita's upcoming launch here in the States is anything but a surefire success. Sony's latest effort and PSP successor has fallen on hard times in Japan with slowing sales only one month after launch.

If there's one game that could push hardware sales in the US as well as Mario or Pokemon, it's Call of Duty. It has a ton of potential.

TooTall beat me too it.
