Since it officially flopped in Japan, do you think the Vita will have a chance in North America and Europe?

No one cares. All that everyone needs to know is that the 3DS is the way to go.

It better sell more in regions with a higher population. But, per ratio with the gamer population? Will it sell more? idk..

The Vita can EASILY do better in the EU and US if SCEE and SCEA doesn't completely bomb their marketing campaign like SCEJ did.

More than likely. It's the best selling handheld in Japan right now, so don't see why it wouldn't in NA and EU.

In general, I think the public appetite for handhelds is decreasing dramatically as smartphones continue to spread. Nintendo has teh 3ds to distinguish itself, but generally speaking I don't think people want dedicated handheld consoles anymore. Just like how arcades pretty much died once consoles became the norm.

Combined? Of course. Individually maybe in the US it will outsell Japan as US gets the best price. Figures won't be anything amazing until Vita gets a killer app.

Going forward, this seems to be the case. The development surrounding Vita had trainwreck written all over it. I dont see it doing that much better in the west.

It most certainly can.

Doesn't mean it will, though.

Yeah i guess so. Sony started a huge advertising campaign didn't they in US? That should help get some initial sales and start the interest. I want one.
