Forums - Gaming Discussion - MS vs Sony's lowest selling; Original Xbox vs PS Vita

 

Which is better?

PS Vita 17 21.79%
 
Original Xbox 61 78.21%
 
Total:78

Would be interested in hearing from more Vita voters, so far one has chimed in.

The poll is considerably less one sided than the posts.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Oooh, that's a toughie. I love both a lot. However, Xbox has Jet Set Radio Future. Shenmue II. Panzer Dragoon Orta. Phantom Dust. Metal Wolf Chaos. Otogi 1-2. I gotta go Xbox here. Even tho in 8 years my Vita works perfectly and had two OG Xbox systems die on me.

Vita has 1300 games though.

Bad ports and shovel ware doesn't mean good support. 

No dedicated god of war game, Gran Turismo vita game or even dDiveclub, no use of ratchet and clank IP or other big IPs getting smaller vita versions other than ports of old games or "just use crossplay".

Uncharted golden abyss was great and it just needed more of that. 

Soul Sacrifice (1st party), Tearaway, Gravity Rush, Little Big Planet, Killzone Mercenary?

Besides, majority of vita games not too good but not completely shovelware either. 

Also, Wii has a ton of shovelwares too.

I assume based off your post (you would know better than me anyway) that the gap between poll numbers and supporting posts is wider than usual, if so I would put it down to the disparity of both consoles across a number of fronts making it harder to make a more concise argument for Vita than just using generalities like I prefer it because of more jrpgs it's portability suits me etc.

Where with say the PS1 vs Xbox you have a lot more scope in regards to finding equivalent or near equivalent points to use to push your side or counter/offset available giving both sides a clearer path for debate, and driving engagement something that the more disparare natures of Vita vs Xbox makes much harder to do.

I did a PS1 vs Xbox poll some time ago, in the form of "each company's best first console".

While I do rate this particular poll's subject choice near the bottom,my reply wasn't about whether or not xbox v PS1 should have been this Poll, it was just an example to highlight the points made before it about how disparity in the subjects being polled can affect one's ability to mount an effective case and so may well be the answer to the question posed by your post about engagement being less than the affirmative Vita poll numbers would indicate.

Persona 4 Golden was in my opinion it's crown jewel but it had plenty of good games the trouble was Sony's treatment of it as a portable cutdown PS4 instead of a combination of a Japanese focused transforming robot with the destructive power of Godzilla type gaming platform crossed with a mix of western genres and titles made fit for purpose rather than shoehorned in encouraged by actual  sony support and talking Sony support how about if they had actually spent at least $10 on in store promotion and acquiring decent shelf space so I could find those games physically, instead of being kept in the same shoebox that gamestop keeps their broken discs in .  someone else can talk about memory cards i don't need the angst.



OG Xbox easily. Vita is nice if you like niche JP games, but it didn't get all that much else. Xbox had loads of big exclusives across a variety of genres, pioneered online play in a big way, revolutionized shooters with Halo turning shooters from a relative niche genre to the biggest genre in gaming now.



That would be Xbox, cause there were various PC ports that i couldn't afford a mid-range GPU for my old PC. :D
