8. PlayStation Vita

Company: Sony

Released first in Japan in December 2011 and then globally in February 2012, initial sales of the PlayStation Vita were encouraging. By the end of February, the company announced it had sold approximately 1.2 million units, followed by an additional 2 million units of software for the handheld game console. Yet sales quickly declined. From its release date to June 30, just 2.2 million PlayStation Vita units were sold, far less than the 3.6 million units Nintendo 3DS sold in just its first month. Recently, Sony has clumped sales of the Vita and its predecessor, the PSP, together to avoid highlighting embarrassing sales figures. Frequent complaints about the Vita were that the $300 price tag was too expensive and that its game lineup was both weak and small, especially given the availability of cheaper gaming through smartphones and tablets.

I still plan on buying one, but that is not a good look. It makes me nervous. I hate buying handhelds that cost over $150. Once Sony hits that price point I will get it in a heart beat.

Wow @ number 3.... Disney lost for even a.ssuming they'd make that money back with no true star power... If you're gonna spend 350 mill on something, get a fu*king movie star.

As for he Vita, it's whatever. Take the loss and move on Sony.

Vita had an original AAA game day 1 + many others great games....

3DS didn't get an AAA game until... the end of its first year unless you count the ports...

The reason 3DS skyrocketed is because of price and a reliance on IPs from the 80s...

edit*

I'd take a clone of a Nintendo game over the actual Nintendo game because then I'd actually have new characters to play as. IMO...

Modnation >>> Mario Kart...

LBP >>>> Mario

LBPKarting >>>> Mario Kart

This n*gga is relying on old IPs

3DS doesn't even let you use your kart saves on your digital games. If you decide to go digital with Mario Kart, you have to start over from scratch
