Meh, he summed it up good, but it's a sad reality of the site. Did it occur to you I was aware of what he was saying? I was just saying it was lame...

Who's to say that users don't learn? The lesson from past years is "enjoy while it lasts".

So if we are looking at a situation where dedicated gaming handhelds are apparently in a battle with smartphones and hardcore gamers need to sell the current machines (3DS, Vita) as much as possible to stop Apple and others, then maybe now is the time that Sony plays the role of the wounded soldier on the battlefield who tells his buddy Nintendo to leave him behind, because otherwise they will both die.

And what interest would Sony have in this ?

- more profits for Nintendo = more resources to fuel console war

- more sales of dedicated Nintendo handheld = less sales of Sony smartphones and sony software on android market

 

Of course there's also a question of how attractive would 3DS as only handheld be to core gamer to win him over tablets/smartphones

I still think it's too early to say that. First 4 weeks rellied on launch lineup which wasn't well received in J.

This week Wipeout 2048 is launching

on next week Tales of Innocence and Sumioni

two weeks from now - Ragnarok Odysey

If this doesn't help weekly sales we well have to sound Doom alarm ;)

Can we just sound the Doom Alarm now and if everything works out shut it off later? Is more fun to see the people running and screaming because "the end is here", that just waiting for the apocalypsis to come. ;)



People are saying just wait for killer software for the ps vita.
They think Sony is a charitable organization? They haven't made any profits for a few years now, and you want them you ride out another war?
It better show good sales for the western market or its really dead. It can't just bleed money like the ps3 did.
Quarter after quarter, they can't keep showing the red.

Exactly, and I seriously doubt the VITA will be huge in America even with all our CoD Fans. They would most likely not want to play on a handheld.

i'll fess up that i predicted that pre-launch.  but in my defense that was also before monster hunter tri-G and 4 was announcement for 3DS.  huuuge blow to sony.  obviously only software can save the vita now ... wonder if we'll ever see that killer game for vita.  now i love sony's first party but there is no denying that their first party doesn't sell as well as nintendo's or MS's.   ... bleak days ahead my friend.

well you might as well start sounding the alarm now then ... while all of those are 'good' games none i'd call 'killer'.  nintendo has mario and mario kart on the 3DS and likely some off the wall break out coming soon like brain age was for the DS.  what will sony bring now that monster hunter is gone (and it's still gone even if 4 is multiplat)?     COD might be a killer app (i have my doubts) but that will only be in the west even if it is.

At this point of life of a console nearly everything should be generating some sales interest. And by sales interest i mean keeping it at 15-20k and not dropping to 4 digits numbers.

oh, well if that's the bar we have set for it ... actually no, i'm predicting sub 10k for at least one week in japan.

Well . I think sony messed up when they refused to announce it earlier then they did
they kept putting it off saying one wasn't coming when in reality it really was!

poor planning . and yea its that easy to create a fiasco like that in the handheld market against Nintendo make no mistake about it.

you give Nintendo the time of day to one up you in the market. its like nascar . if you give a driver as good as Jeff gordon a free 1 lap ahead advantage hes going to exploit that . if a caution did not waive

same theory here if Nintendo don't mess up or correct any mistakes before the time arrives.

your in trouble. its that simple

there has been enough competitors that have failed to master the important things a handheld must have .
1 is good battery life -Nintendo edged out Sony on this one according to an article i found here on this site
2 exclusive good well known games. -Sony released a few new IP's but again do they work . they have to or this is not going to pan out well .
3 pricing. sure the bare price of the vita was the same as 3 DS launch price .for wifi-only model . but
as soon as they announced that you needed a memory card to boot a game people had to account for that. and since Nintendo had time to spare just like I explained earlier Sony gave Nintendo that advantage . --they cut the price . got the games needed .

if Vita comes out with what it got and Sony doesn't announce titles for it quick. just like Nintendo did . to fix the situation it's not guaranteed to get better


all lies in the hands of Sony right now give it some time. but in japan . time is a ticking
in the US lets wait

Nintendo can just throw a lightning, followed by a red shell and finish off with a blue shell. Then you'll fall off the cliff from that finishing blow and all your 10 coins disappeared.



The Vita is the best handheld ever made.



@jonnybmk The 3DS is the best handheld ever made.
