And most models appear tiny on screen, not to mention the lower resolution.
you know, a co-op side scroller like NSMBWii could be really awesome for HN's 4 CPUs! (and unlockable HNmk2 characters!)
As much as I like platformers, I have the feeling most Neptunia fans aren't good at them at all =P

Miyamoto explained this before and it ended up even more confusing because they thought Peach wasn't playable because their animators were incompetent the way he said it (as he said they would have issues with her dress). Basically the issue is that players would expect the other characters to have a different set of abilities, but Nintendo wanted all characters to play the same (since this affects co-op a lot). The toads were the best solution they could find.

Actually, considering the number of sales of the PSP, it wasn't exactly a small userbase. The problem is that it got cracked practically near launch and developers decided to jump ship because of piracy, which resulted in the platform losing support almost immediately. This is what Sony gets for making it possible to completely nullify the security by just using a battery
... (seriously, Sony?)
Price and battery life certainly didn't help either, but now the 3DS also fails miserably at the battery life part (which was the
advantage of Nintendo handhelds), so that evens the field a bit for the Vita. Besides it still has to be cracked to the extent the PSP was.
EDIT: oh, also forgot, the Vita at least seems to be doing better in the UK launch than it did in the Japanese launch, at least in terms of proportion: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/1628 ... h_week.php
(although of course, we need to see its performance after launch...)
