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

If that's pointed at me, then you're wrong again. I have not doomed it nor want it to doom.

Nintendo needed to be kept on its toes with fierce competition.

I think that was a general comment.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

even Sony would think twice to say it loud.

Not pointed at you, no. Most PSP games were also designes specifically for the PSP, what's your point? 

@NintendoPie: That's the thing. Vita now has almost exactly the same controls as a Dualshock controller, plus touch functionality. Console like experiences would work perfectly on the Vita.



Even if I didn't have a 3ds, I would be forced to buy one when MH4 hits.  Tri is so awesome I can't wait for 4 on 3ds (though I'd be lying id I didn't admit I'd love a Wii successor version as well, so I could play it on the big screen, save, take it with me wherever I go, save, rinse...repeat.  Thankfully with titles like RE:R, street Fighter, 3dland and mk7 (and the ambassador games) I feel like I've already gotten good return on my investment.

 

I refuse to diss on vita because it will be a quality machine with quality games....but all the people trying to crap on 3ds because of their need of bias towards sony are going out of their way to do so and aren't seeing the big picture.  Trying to discredit the 3ds is just silly, it's going to be a force to be reckoned with, i'm sure.

This isn`t the type of article that better explains the strengths of Vita.
I do think Vita has potential in it and i believe that it will do better in US and Europe, it`s just that, to me, Sony waited too long to release Vita and that gave Nintendo not only time to correct some of it`s mistakes with 3DS, it gave them time to build momentum and start to grow a (15 million) fanbase. And while Sony will be busy correcting it`s mistakes (lack of software that truly stands out), 3DS will be putting out great games and even a 2D Mario (=lots of sales).
As much as i want for Vita to do well, Sony does have an uphill battle to fight.

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?

The PSP had all the most popular PS2 games, except for Gran Turismo which came out late in the lifecycle of the PSP. GTA, NfS, FIFA, Pro Evo, Madden, Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, virtually everything was coming. The huge games were there, they just didn't become as huge as they were on the PS2. Why didn't they sell better? Because they were inferior versions on a more expensive machine for the most part. The PS Vita is in the same boat. People are better off going with a 360 or PS3 to play the games.

Mario Kart is rooted in the days when home console gaming was still very similar to gaming in arcades. Easy to pick up and play, highly addictive. That's the kind of home console games that work on handhelds. SM3DL is closer to modern home console games, but it has been adjusted to fit on a handheld. Levels are linear and don't leave room for exploration which would only slow the game down. It's not going to reach the numbers of a Super Mario Bros. game, but it has realistic chances to become the bestselling 3D Mario title of all time (which would be 12+ million copies).

Pay attention to this important difference. Not all home console games are the same. The question to ask for any particular handheld game is: "Would this game have worked in an arcade environment?" If the answer is no, then there's no reason to expect sales anywhere close to those of the home console counterpart. Keep in mind that this only works for the Western markets, because unlike in Japan, handheld gaming is perceived as second rate gaming over here.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Still think Nintendo pulled a fast one on Sony by dropping the price so soon... People expect it will happen to the Vita too thus making people hesitant of buying it..

Yeah but I think it'll have much broader repercussions and all 8th gen hardware will suffer from it.
