Sure the Vita has 2 million more in sales, but is that all we look at?
Vita has more games and is on the charts more with small hits. Mainly due to Japan. But when it comes to big games the Vita does not even have a game in the top "1200" on the vgchartz game page! Both systems have a robust digital empire as well, but since I am biased I'll say the Wii U wins the digital race.
Now the Wii U has two million fewer units sold, but is advertised a lot, and costs more to make I am sure. Ofcourse it costs much more as well so that offsets the price diference. Lastly, and maybe a game changer, the Wii U has many more U games in the top 1200 and two that are about to jump into the top 200 on the charts.
So despite both doing poorly over their lifetime, which has been more profitable?
