Vita is basically dead. There's just no way people can continue to claim smartphones/tablets haven't had a monstrous impact on the handheld market. These are enormous drop offs.

The problem is that revenue has just disappeared from the markets. People are spending their time on tablets but the actual spending isn't there.

Now that there's an expectation of free to 99c, a game has to be exceptional to command even $10+ on a tablet.

renvenue didn't disappeared.. they are spending it on mobile games.. did you  know that the mobile software market in Japan is bigger than dedicated consoles and handhelds software AND hardware... http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=166140
smarthphone games alone almost beat the software sales for dedicated consoles..

Ok we have Atlus handheld games way way overtracked here.



We have the majority of JRPGs overtracked here.

SMT IV did well. One of the best selling SMT games and at $50 for a 3DS game. The rebate doesn't end till this month so hopefully it has some legs.




Minecraft... What the hell?!
By this point one would have thought it was starting to show its age. I can't believe that it's still selling good.

Actually it's selling more and more :p Before retail release - 50-60k per week on XBLA and now 110-130k per week on X360 :p

game spending down in 2012



Atlus should have made most off their games like shin megami, multiplatform

Those sales are horrible

Last month Mobile in the US ($271 million) is almost as large as digital revenue for PC and consoles ($286 million).. which is impressive and  mobile is on the rise fast. I won't be surprised if it will represent a 25 to 40 % of the total market in the future (digital + retail)
