Handhelds outselling consoles is nothing new or impressive.

Except in this case, it was impressive.

But it's a knock against Nintendo, so no-one cares.

Are we talking about WiiU v Vita?

A turd sandwich v a giant douche?

SNES Mini will probably sell more than WiiU, WiiU success had nothing to do with Sony unlike 3DS kicking Sony out of the handheld arena.

...And yet, we live in a world where a Sony handheld outsold a Nintendo home console.

Is that the same portable that led to Sony leaving the portable market? This is kind of my point. Sony can only attack top down but Nintendo can attack from beneath and top down if they choose. Nintendo is also capable of attacking from the side (Wii v PS3/360). If Nintendo was EA or Activision, Sony might stand a chance but Nintendo is staying in the dedicated hardware  market come what may. Sony will leave the second they see bigger profits elsewhere.

It's just a matter of time.

It was indeed! Still an achievement though, considering that both launched in the same year, were the same price, and the Vita lacked support.



Thus, you openly admit this a trash thread and should be locked. Hmmm.....

LOOOL



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Ps vita selling slightly less shit than Wii U isn't impressive by any stretch of the imagination. They barely outsold a console which was a disaster in every way conceivable.

 

The Wii U wasn't a disaster though - it was the console that the Wii should've been.

Its poor sales show that Nintendo rely too heavily on casual appeal and gimmicks.

That isn't an achievement.

'Vita lacked support'? Are you familiar with Nintendo's home consoles?

Nintendo had Smash Bros on Gamecube and Splatoon on WiiU. What does Sony have to show for their failures? Nothing. Even when Nintendo 'loses' they still end up with the biggest FPS(Goldeneye)/biggest fighter/1st party shooter. Sony has zilch. Even when Ninetendo 'loses' they still win at the long game.

Nope.

Your OP openly admits that this is, in some form or fashion, a retaliatory thread. "Because they did it, I can too".

It is bait and nothing more. I don't object to a topic that truly analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of both companies. They each have them. The issue here is how this is presented.
