5 minutes ago "@Sony - $250 Vita? OH NO ABANDON SHIP!!"

So, the video is basically: "we're practicing, we have stuff to talk about and announce at E3"
O'RLY, Nintendo?!

PSV will surely take atleast 45% of the hardware market share against 3DS. Game sales will be atleast at 60% because of replay value. All 3DS has going for them is name brand and 1st party exclusives.

Shok3460d ago (Edited 3460d ago )

45%? No. While the Vita was smartly priced (great move on Sony's part), the 3DS will still severely outsell it due to it having a lot more casual appeal. Do you see kids walking around with Mario or Drake, for instance?

Also, the $250 price tag will only make Nintendo drop the price of the 3DS quicker. The 3DS only cost $100 to make, so Nintendo could even drop it to $150 and still make a nice profit off of it. Nintendo simply has flexibility with the 3DS's price.

Mykky3460d ago

Show me games, not hardware! Uncharted looks awesome but what other games are there except for PS3 ports? (I did not watch the Sony conference yesterday so correct me if I'm wrong). The 3DS will easily sell out the Vita but Vita since there is more casual gamers than hardcore gamers around. Vita will surely be the best one though, just hope they don't disappoint with the games.

Skip_Bayless3460d ago

I can give you two good reasons. Third party developers will be more inclined to make PSV games because they don't have to compete with Nintendo 1st party games. The system is more flexible for game development with a touch screen and two sticks.

Essentially you have a slightly weaker version of the 360 and PS3 in a handheld. The online capabilities and the two sticks are very attractive to developers especially with the game sales and popularity of FPS and TPS games. The major FPS and TPS games easily outsell any major Nintendo 1st party game outside of Super Smash and Mario Kart. Even if you put an average shooter like Rainbow Six on PSPV with all the features from the console version it will sell 1 million copies due to the competitive online community.

Enough about the hardware. The same EXACT thing was said about the PSP, and how it would dominate the gaming world due to it's new technology in a handheld.

Yeah, that didn't happen.

CDbiggen3459d ago

These are very early days, it's pointless to speculate about market share.

Theyellowflash303459d ago

Were did you get that number? 45%? did you just make that up?

UMMM, WHO DOESN'T REHEARSE Im pretty sure Sony and Microsoft did the same just saying, and the PSVita isn't that expensive who was crying I ask?. It's same price as a 3DS dude, soo... yeah

Titanz3460d ago

I don't agree Shok.Mainly because there's been reports on the 3DS's negative effects on consumers.

A more powerful handheld as the same price as the competition?

Vita wins.Nintendo needs to drop the price on the 3DS.

phantomexe3460d ago

lol what negative effect on comsumers i found the vita cool too but the 3DS will outsell vita. The one thing nintendo do's well is run the handheld market.I bet they drop the price but who knows.

Zanarkand3460d ago

Time to buckle up. Its going to be a bumpy ride.

Killzone3Helghast3460d ago

If Nintendo announces a new good console with a big rpg title line up consider me sold but if it's just gonna be shooter fest crap I don't really give a !
