I'm hoping my thread title at some point today is right above or right below this one - "Vita is destined to sell better than 3DS"

*Standard SDF response about global sales.*

Wait, 3DS crushes that too?

Uh...luxury item!

Apparently the new SDF response is sales don't matter. Apparently developers don't give a crap about how many potential customers there are and how well their games sell. Good studios just randomly make games on whatever platform. So it doesn't matter how poorly the Vita sells, it won't have any impact whatsoever on what developers do or don't do with the unit.

Too bad that is crazy nonsense and only Gay/Flores/Dougie/Oskar believe that. Granted they also predicted the end being nigh with Nintendo and the 3DS.

Yep, and the Vita won't sell without a price cut either.

Sony says that Vita sales are a marathon, not a sprint.

One would think that Sony might have learned something from that.

Im still picking the Vita next week over the 3DSXL because the system fits my needs and gaming habits more. I don't need sales numbers to tell me which system to enjoy more. I will be getting a 3DSXL soon to replace my DS Lite, but right now there aren't any games I am interested in very much.

Sales will pick up when the price drops and more games become available. The original DS was a big hit in Japan initially, but then people switched to the PSP. Sony likes to launch high priced powerful hardware and have it slow burn forever. Where as Nintendo launches with a low price and sales fizzle out in a few years.

"Where as Nintendo launches with a low price and sales fizzle out in a few years."

Especially the DS, that sucker stopped selling after only 7 years!

Ninstationbox is becoming a broken record. He is just as bad as those SDF weirdos.

Vita just got two new colors in Japan so hopefully that boosts sales.

When and if I purchase the Vita, I plan on purchasing it in Japan to help close the gap on the 3DS. The bonus is I'll be able to pick up a cool new color Vita!

Speaking of that, I really hope NoA brings over that Fire emblem 3ds over with the game. Day 1 buy if true.

Man, that system is gorgeous and I say that as an owner of the Zelda 3DS.
