Was the kinect a sucess? How much did that sell and ended up beeing a fad?

How much did the Vita sell and was touted as a failure?

I just don't see how this is anything but a flop.

Mine is sitting in my closet. While very cool, the lack of good games and the cumbersome set-up makes it not fun to regularly play or leave plugged in.
