Re: @Greg J Preece
This was a point that you strenuously avoiding during your rather limp triumphalist Sony fanboi crowing on most 3DS articles- though it seems that the Vita has sold even worse.
Come again? If you'd read my previous comments on the DS range properly, you'd have learned that I own two of them, one limited edition, and only one Sony handheld (admittedly also limited edition). Read it again, moron: I don't own a Vita. I'm not owning a Vita until I get some games. I was criticising it, just as when I called the PSP Go useless. Some Sony fanboy, eh?
If you could be less of a dismissive tit and try again, you might spot that I was railing in defence of all dedicated games consoles. I haven't actually disagreed with anything you've said in terms of market direction, (a point you'll also miss, I imagine) but that doesn't mean I have to like it.
Games on mobiles are shit, end of story. Screens are inferior, controls are horrendous, sound quality sucks balls, and the general effort and variety put into the games is far, far less. Call that "silly platform advocacy" if you want, but I am a gamer, and a proper one. I buy any platform that has the games I want, and actually works (I don't own a Kinect). My recent slagging off of Nintendo has been because recent Nintendo offerings are a load of crap. Sony being useless at releases doesn't make the 3DS any less rubbish, or the Wii any more functional.
Incidentally, my primary gaming platform is the PC. You'd have easily learnt that too, if you'd taken the time to read what I was saying rather than labelling me. But I guess it's easier to be condescending when you ignore what contradicts you.
