Forums - Sales Discussion - Vita owners are to blame for the Vita's current situation

Yesterday somebody created a thread to ask the question where all the Vita games for 2014 are. It should go without saying, but it's looking bleak. There isn't much coming in terms of retail software and that's because you Vita owners didn't do your part in supporting the games that were released for the device.

If you wanted more Call of Duty from Activision, you should have bought more copies of Declassified. The game got a lot of advertisement and was even bundled with the system, yet it didn't even sell a million units.

If you wanted more support from Ubisoft, you should have bought more copies of Assassin's Creed III: Liberation. See CoD: Declassified.

If you wanted more support from EA, you should have bought more copies of their FIFA games. Such a huge brand couldn't even move half a million units on Vita and this year's edition sits at a meager 0.03m.

If you wanted more JRPGs from Square-Enix, you should have bought more copies of Army Corps of Hell.

If you wanted Monster Hunter from Capcom, you should have bought more copies of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Street Fighter X Tekken.

If you wanted Metal Gear Solid from Konami, you should have bought more copies of the MGS HD Edition.

If you wanted Valkyria Chronicles from Sega, you should have bought more copies of their games.

If you wanted Grand Theft Auto or Bioshock from Take Two, you should have bought more copies of their games.

If you wanted WRPGs from Bethesda, you should have bought more copies of their games.

If you wanted more first party games, then maybe you should have told your real life friends how awesome the Vita is. But since you didn't, this analyst's prediction became reality.

The bottom line is that Vita owners didn't buy games. You have nobody but yourselves to blame. You have made your bed and now you have to lie in it.



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

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

I have the feeling there's a contradiction out there in this statement, but I can't find it.



The Vita owner has bought on average 10 games per system. so its not really the owners fault. i know this is a Rol thread, and i get the point your going at with this thread. but just wanted to point that out.

I don't want any of this crap. CoD:D was buggy. Handhelds need more games like patapon, Rayman, LBP, etc. They are cheeper to make and more suitable playing on the go. Killzone Mercenaries is like engine from K3 and new maps. That's a good deal for both consumers and publishers.



I find this hilarious (with an i) because vita owners probably have one the highest attach rates around. Didnt Tretton say that on average vita owners have 10 games? which I guess is pretty high.

Declassified got way more sales than it deserved. Liberation was sent to die when it was release along side its big brother.

"If you wanted WRPGs from Bethesda, you should have bought more copies of their games."

what has Bethesda put on the vita?

Current vita owner may carry some of the blame, but its nothing compared to the blame Sony should bare. nice try though :)

That number includes everything between retail, PSN, PS Mini and PS Mobile. The fact that Sony had to go that far to make the Vita look good highlights how much of a problem Vita owners really are.
