Well, I can see where Evangelion is coming from/why a lot of People seem to think the Vita blows. If you check the sales of the Vita and/or its Games, it's clear that it's not even close to the 3DS' Sales, so a lot of people will treat it as the 2nd Place Handheld. Since there is NO other Handheld around, besides the Vita and the 3DS, it automatically becomes the "loser".
I don't get this though. By that logic the Wii should've been considered the "winner" early on in last gen's console wars. If I remember correctly, despite the sales, the Wii was considered the worst of the 3 for quite some time due to the ultra-casual and simplistic nature of its games.
It actually was the winner for a long while . Remember when it was hard to get a Wii? And the PS3 and Xbox 360 were easily found on the shelves lol

And when it comes to these Console "Wars" people tend to side with the "Winner", which is the 3DS.It's also clear that it's going WAY better in Japan than in NA and/or Europe, so it will most certainly treated as the "loser" here.
No argument on that. The Vita has roughly 1/4th the sales of the 3DS (which sounds low, until you keep in mind that the 3DS is very popular).The thing is, Evangelion has already called it dead simply because they personally don't like it, trying to use personal feelings as fact.It's obvious the Vita is less popular, but less popular does not equal dead. And as you said, it's well supported in Japan, still.The Wii was popular at first, and sold more consoles than the PS3... however, the popularity didn't last long as people noticed it relied nearly entirely on a single gimmick that was barely utilized. The system sold, sure... but in the end, the games didn't have nearly as much attention. Even now, Nintendo seems to have abandoned the Wii, while the PS3, despite it's aged hardware, is still getting quite a bit of attention.
*some attention (to my utter dismay)

The ps3 was a pile of shit when it first released. Don't you remember?
Different times. May sound like a cheap excuse, but the Brain of the Customer clicked. People bought the Wii, played Wii Sports, realized that the Controls aren't really accurate and that it's just a gimmick and moved on.When PS3, X360 came out, HD boomed everywhere. All that was important was HD. The Wii however, being nothing more than a powered-up GameCube with Pseudo Motion-Controls, could only deliver 480p, making it the weakest of the bunch. So no HD = No Good.You MAY HAVE noticed that this HD and Resolution craze isn't over. People want, almost demand, 1080p/60FPS, and that's all that counts at the moment. That's what the current Gen is about for most people. Game only runs in 720p or 900p with only 30FPS? THIS GAME SUCKS! THIS CONSOLE IS WEAK! I DON'T WANT DAT! MOM! BUY ME THE BEST CONSOLE! NAO! =PPS4 delivers, what the customer wants. Good Games in (usually) the best Resolution and Graphics for a affordable price. Thanks to horrible Marketing by Nintendo, the WiiU couldn't do sheet this Gen, even though it started like 1 Year ahead of PS4/X1.Xbox 1 is going HORRIBLE in the east but relatively good in the west, but it's still below the Wii U. Make out of that what you will.TL;DR: If a Console/Handheld is succsesfull or not, depends on what the customer wants during that time.
The PS3 had rough sales at first, I know. Never said it didn't.However, by the end, even though it sold like 20 million fewer consoles, the overall sales were much better for the games.
So, at this point in time, everyone wants systems with "best graphics evar!1!!1!" ? So wouldn't the Vita have a one up on the 3ds if that's the case?
