[QUOTE="charizard1605"] Even though I call into question their reasoning and/or their credibility just a little... how would you argue it is not a failure?Zophar87
The system isint dead and hasint even been out for that long and still has games coming.
I agree, it's not dead.
However, by the time the 3DS was a year old, it already had several games on it that made the price of admission seem worth it. Also, Nintendo had slashed the price to $160 which made things a lot easier.
That's the point though, Nintendo had to slash the price of the 3DS and rush Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 to the market to spur sales of the 3DS. Overall, the 3DS had a horrible first year on the market. Its early months were defined by a lack of killer games(barring the OOT remake), a high price point that many people were not willing to play, and there was no incentive to upgrade from the DS to the 3DS. The 3DS was a failure until the price drop and the arrival of the two Mario games that were rushed out to serve as major titles during the Holiday season of 2011.
As I've said before, I don't understand why people want to bury the Vita and write it off as a failure when the system has not even been on the market for a year. The 3DS was a failure in its first few months on the marketplace, and people were saying the same thing about it as well. For all we know, Sony could drop the price on the hardware and memory cards to help spur sales.
I'm getting tired of people writing off the Vita as a failure when the systme has barely been on the market for a year. The 3DS and Playstation 3 were two systems that started off poorly before selling better as the games started arriving and the systems dropped in price.
Who's to say the Vita can't do the same thing?
