With a launch date less than a month away, not much has been reported about the PS Vita. 


Actually, there have been plenty of reports about how it flopped in Japan and how the 3DS has outsold it by between 6 and 10 to 1 in Japan.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Why repost a seven year old article?

It came out yesterday? Do you mean DS vs. PSP articles?


Obviously the DS vs PSP articles. This article is virtually the same in spirit, and fails even worse considering that we already know the Vita is flopping about like a fish out of water; and has fewer guns for the future than the PSP had (losing Monster Hunter to 3DS, decline in the association with other brands like FF and GTA that the PSP depended on)

If the writer can’t see the mature content on the 3DS then what makes you think they can see any negative reports of the Vita?

These people see what they want not what is out there

This thread shows us how erroneous some of our preconceptions can be, and how counter-intuitive business strategy in this market actually is. There is much more at play here than who has the best harware. Luckily we have precedent to rest on this time around.

The face-off is nearly identical as last gen's, with some points more positive for the 3DS this time around (capcom support, MH). If history serves us right the Vita is DOA... Things could change, but as far as logic goes one only needs to look at the past for answers.



I think some of you are too quick to judge and think that what happens in Japan happens WW too. Let's not forgot huge games such as CoD, AC coming to Vita. If they pull it off right, they could provide a massive boost for the Vita

Console experience on portable is what failed the PSP against the DS.

Nope, lack of huge games did. It's not that people don't want to play "console-like" games, it's more that the games weren't popular enough. Are Mario Kart and SM3DLand not console like experiences, for example? Are they not very very similar to Wii/gamecube games?



And for the record I don't completely agree with the article but I think some of you are going overboard with the doom calling

No, you're using wrong examples. MK7 works nicely on home/portable consoles.

3DLand is designed specifically for the 3DS, that's a horrible example to pick. LOL.

The NSMB/3D Series and MK Series are perfect for either handheld or home console. They are both very easy to control and very fun.

OT: That is almost impossible. The VITA will most likely end up like the PSP. Not a total failure but no where near what the DS had sales wise. The VIT A will have some good games but it's lost many exclusives. For one a main series KH game is coming to the 3DS and a MH already has come to the 3DS and another is on it's way. The VITA has just lost out on many things that the DS Family has gained since last gen.

The VITA will not be able to compete with the 3DS, it's not going to totally fail but it's not going to win.
