I don't believe we have NPD numbers for Vita yet.

Last I saw, we only know that it is up from last month (which was terrible).

I think some of them are still waiting for the holiday season, but that looks to be the the biggest disaster of them all. The 3DS has tons of software, the Wii U will steal a spotlight and probably outsold the Vita on preorders alone. Meanwhile the Vita has a holiday lineup of almost nothing.


What notable releases are there for 3DS this holiday season? Q1 and Q2, and to a lesser extent Q3 were good for 3DS. But this last quarter is an absolute joke. Exclusive Assassin's Creed and exclusive Call of Duty, even if you aren't personally interested, are more notable than anything coming to 3DS this holiday season, unless I'm missing a megaton game dated for NA.


lol no

Paper Mario, Epic Mickey and Brain Age alone will run circles around these games, and i think Pokemon Mystery Dungeon was coming to NA for the holidays, too. And that's just what has a release date. In Japan it's even more of a massacre where the also got EX Troopers, multiple Inazuma Eleven games, Layton vs. AA, Naruto, Unchained Blades EXXiV, Toriko, another SKU for a 3DS DQ game, etc.

paper mario destroys them both.


It will probably single-handedly outsell the entire Vita holiday lineup.

We do, and at best, there was about a 10K increase, including the Madden bundle and LBP.

I thought Paper Mario was delayed. Awesome that I'll actually use my 3DS this fall.

But you're delusional if you think that's a higher profile release than Assassin's Creed. I'm not saying one will be better than the other, I've played neither. I'm also not saying one will sell more than the other. But Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty mean more in North America than Paper Mario and Epic Mickey.

Brain age set the world on fire on DS, but didn't the second one not perform well? Too lazy to dig up NPD numbers.

And that's just what has a release date. In Japan.......

Apparently it's coming out November 11th. You must be thinking of Luigi's Mansion 2, which was slated for this holiday season and delayed.

But you're delusional if you think that's a higher profile release than Assassin's Creed. I'm not saying one will be better than the other, I've played neither. I'm also not saying one will sell more than the other.


ACL is coming out in October. I wouldn't consider that "holiday lineup". By the time the holidays start rolling, it'll be old news.

But Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty mean more in North America than Paper Mario and Epic Mickey.


Don't count on it. The DS CoDs only sold about 100k, and these were on a system that much more people owned. Meanwhile, Paper Mario/TTYD/Super Paper Mario sold 580k/1.48m/1.7m in NA, respectively, According to vgchartz, that is. Feel free to use NPD figures if you want.

Brain age set the world on fire on DS, but didn't the second one not perform well? Too lazy to dig up NPD numbers.


4.71m and 3.41m respectively in NA, according to vgchartz, so either way it's more than anything on the Vita could hope for.

Of course we're talking about Japan. The topic didn't limit it to the US and neither did my point of "I think some of them are still waiting for the holiday season..." or anything either of us posted.
