It sucks that the Vita isn't doing too well. It's an amazing piece of hardware and has some pretty great games on it. I'm also loving all the cross-buy and cross-play functionality it's been getting.


yeah that screen is amazing, i can easily see the pixels on the 3DS's screen T-T

The vita is anything but a gear with games.

in my many years in the Nintendo fandom, i have never seen a Nintendo fan use that as a point against the PSP :P

You need to take those goggles off then, because other than being a port machine, the battery life and only having one analog were the next two best reasons to bash on the PSP.  Coincidentally what two problems does the 3DS have?  Nintendo fans are okay with Nintendo portables and consoles having problems though.



More like a No Games Gear.

Yeah, the best part about the Vita is the screen. I like looking at it. Even the wallpapers I put in are nice to look at.

i think it's more of a lynx 2 or something. great specs, bad price, no games. and the competitor, low specs, great price, lots of games.

You know that what games are great or what aren't depends on your personal preferences. I never had problems with lack of quality software on Vita, but I still don't have 3DS because I can't justify buying a system for few 3rd party games that I would play on it. 

Vita's problem isn't as much price as it's the popularity of tablets. Simply smartphones and tablets are "in", and handhelds are "out". Next to good cheap tablets that are slowly emerging like ASUS MeMo 7 HD, Acer Iconia A1, or of course ASUS Nexus 7 (2013), handhelds simply don't offer enough "value" to potential consumers. 

The market has changed, and is changing. 3DS and Vita are already heavily outdated, when compared to last years tablets... 



I hope that the Vita will get at least 20 million. I haven't bought one yet myself though, so I guess I'm part of the problem.

3DS is here to stay though.... And Nintendo's Next handheld



I had a GameGear--it was, in fact, a success for SEGA--which automatically puts it in a league beyond that of the current Vita.

just like Sony fans are okay with Sony consoles/handhelds having problems as well.
