Ask the people on this board who predicted that the Vita would outsell the 3DS. They are the ones qualified to answer that.

But... what's wrong with liking it all!

Where does it say that if the Vita doesn't sell as well as the 3DS than it's a bad system!

There are games on the Vita I can't get on the 3DS and games on the 3DS i can't get on the Vita. I have to have both! And If you want to talk about price, I paid the same for my 3DS as Vita. Actually technically more for the 3DS since I just traded it for a 3DSXL. the 3DSXL is sooooo much nicer.

I Prefer to go by Badger or Jack IRL. Fox works too, was my name in WoW so i'm used to that too (Fox being short for Foxflame)

Keller is the guy that said that the Wii and DS would both outsell the PS2...
The the Wii would reach 100mil sold faster than PS2
That the WiiU will not sell at a Loss, because Nintendo never sells [over his dead body] a home console at a loss (I believe he said the same thing abut the 3DS..cant remember)
SMG and SMG2 are the Highest rated games this gen (until I showed him the scores of GTAIV)
blah, blah, blah

Moral of the story....do I really need to spell it out?

I don't see anyone making those arguments.

You clearly haven't been around here for long :3

In a lot of places people are saying since the Vita isn't selling better than the 3DS it's an inferior system blah blah blah....

So much hate for no reason. And it's not just Vita vs 3DS, it's Xbox vs PS3 (though Nintendo never get's mentioned) iPad vs Android.

"Why does it matter if it doesn't sell as well? I have both, I like both."

Sales=increased developer support and longer shelf life. Sales do matter. Sure a system can be enjoyed and great, despite low sales. See the Gamecube for details. But the Gamecube did have bad third party support, because sales were terrible. Meanwhile the ps2 broke records and had easily the greatest third party support out of any console in the history of gaming. Sales do affect developer support.

Let me ask you this; if you were in charge of a studio and had a great idea for a portable game.... would you release it for a portable with 25 million potential buyers or 3 million?

Over two years and I don't see anyone making that claim.

I've only been here 6 months but I've seen the threads on it. And it's not just here, it's all over the internet.

If you can link to people claiming that then I'll believe you.

Honestly it should have been. I can't figure out why anybody in their right mind actually thought Nintendo wasn't going to be successful with the 3DS, the DS is upwards of 150 million sold. Sure Flores, Oskar and Gay are crazy enough to say silly stuff, but a 'professional journalist' should have known better.

oh lord I don't remember where the thread's are they were months ago, closer to the Vita's release.

My Point is just because the Vita sells less doesn't make it a worse system.

Nobody is making that claim though. Look in this thread. Has anybody said that?

Yeah, nobody thinks that. I would not go down this road if I were you, it's caused Flores a lot of trouble inserting victimization where there is none.

Didn't say people on this thread said it.

EDIT: ACK, I mistyped, I had 3DS and Vita Switched in my head and I don't know why. That was my big msitake, and I apologize. This is what happened when I get only 1 hour of sleep.

Haha, no, no chance in hell. The 3DS isn't great, but there is no way the Vita will ever outsell it.

It could make it less of a system though. If Japan sales don't pick up, don't you think that will affect developer support? Why do you think 99% of third party support was on the ps2 and not Gamecube? Why do you think many developers decided this generation to develop for both the ps3 and 360? Developers are there to make money, they care about sales for obvious reason. Sales will have little to no affect on first/second party support. But it does greatly influence third party support. The Wii got next to no real third party support, because third party games sold horribly. Sales do matter.
