Some wiiu discs just don't work period due to printing errors. Wind waker was a big one that had that issue where a good portion of them didn't work out of the box. There was one or two other wiiu games that had that issue but I can't recall them off the top of my head. no idea on vita carts but persona q the majority don't work from what I understand so that one you should test right away. Only brightside is atlus has a send in thing and they give you the digital version instead.
Do you have a link for the Persona Q thing? Too late for me since I already bought the digital version, but if I could help others I will.
