Forums - Gaming Discussion - 2014 is Vita year for gamers ! ( not for shareholders though)

It is the year when the Vita will do halfway decent numbers in Japan and nowhere else, if I'm completely honest.

End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

I am 100% a nerd like everyone here is.
My postcount is close to 5800 on VGC and I am playing  videogames for about 20 years now.

... I have never even heard of one of the games you just mentioned.

 

This is not trolling, more the obvious truth some people here don't like:
The Vita as a handheld platform is basically dead. It degenerated to a PS4 accessory.

You can list all those niche and indie games, but 16k units for whole NA and Europe combined speaks volumes.

Like i said, we're not talking about sales here, we're talking about games.

Vita year in term of games, not in terms of sales, obviously.

You have no idea how good or bad the games are.

Going by gameplay videos a few look like they could be decent, the rest don't look very good at all.

This goes for every list on every console, we never know how good or bad the games are before playing them ( but we do know most of them seem good/ambitious or are good rated ).

 

Dirty : Read all the posts, this is not because you dont know a game that he doesnt exist or is bad, and being " 100% nerd " means nothing nowadays, for some, being a nerd means play call of duty and big system seller.



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

Vita saved



Between this and the 3DS release list, it's going to be a terrible year for handhelds. =^/

Vita's crossplay feature will push sales. You can play ps4 games anywhere as long as you have a solid wifi connection. That right there makes it an amazing feature and value. Your girl is crabbing for the tv go ahead I will play on my vita, hells ya!
