PS Vita doesn't deserve bad reputation - Drinkbox

"If people don't see the Vita doing the same number of sales as the 3DS, then it's automatically a failure," McQuinn said. "But I think what people fail to understand is the purchasers of Vitas are very, very engaged game consumers. For them, the attach rate with games is very high. There might not be a lot of Vitas out there, but the people who do own Vitas are very serious consumers; they buy a lot of games."
Emphasis mine. I would actually love to see Sony share some attach rate numbers for the Vita. I'm guessing they are insanely huge compared to virtually every console before it. Does anyone remember another console that might beat the Vita for attach rate?

Yeah this isn't the first time I've heard of the vita's high attached rate as well. It's apparently a lot more than the 3DS Despite having only a fraction of the library.

Really? Well Vita should be giving us more games if consumers are buying that much games. I honesty haven't touch my Vita in a long ass time beside the occasional remote-play.

There are tons of Vita games, but they're mostly either indies or niche Japanese games like dungeon crawlers and hunting games. Most of those games are also on the PS4, but they're cheaper on the Vita and 'feels' better to play on.

It's like for the most enthusiastic of otaku gamers.

Man, if Sony was savvy and smart, they could have just market the Vita purely for those gamers like in a major anime con or something.

Realistically speaking I don't think there's a lot of people buying Anime games outside of Japan.

You'll get the occasional SAO and FSN but everything else the market is still local Japanese Otakus.

Of course, then Dengeki Bunko happened...

I don't think you have a large amount of people in any given place no. However that's exactly why I think the Vita might just be unprecedented. We're now at the point where buying digitally is generally better accepted thanks to years of Steam, XBLA and alike training the public to download to "own" and that can only benefit niche titles. If you stock something like Sword Art Online on your local Gamestop it's unlikely to ever sell out so the cost of doing a large scale distribution won't pan out but if you release it digitally people who want the game will be more likely to get it and the overall publishing costs will be lower. This is particularly true in Europe where different countries have different requirements that get heavily multiplied cost-wise when trying to physically release a game over so many different countries and languages. Just 3 or 4 years ago would anyone even think that games like Project Diva or Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax would be getting an overseas release like they did/are getting?

Now if only Sony would drop the prices of those memory cards...

So, apparently the world on the streets is that Vita has been selling good in China.

No, I mean the actual legit sales.

Both VITA and PS4s were officially launched in China last week. It's all anecdotic for now of course.

^Just poking fun at my people, but they are seriously buying the Vita over 3Ds? Nintendo wtf are you doing...

All mature titles is obviously no good/banned, so that means all the dating sims and other anime goodies will be localized... Time to pick up my Chinese lang again. China may be the savior for Vita!!!
