$250 price tag too expensive ?

Hell everyone was expecting $400 per unit. Trade-in your old games and psp for credit.

Problem solved

There's nothing on the 3ds that is worth purchasing for "ME" so that choice is horrible.

People love to complain. If the Vita was given for free with each purchase of fries, people would complain.

people are probably going to hold on to their PSP's considering vita CANT play umd's & most people aren't going to rebuy their psp games for the vita. Btw with a decent memory card, game & tax it'll be over $400.

The vita will be worht it in about 2-3 years when good games acutlly come out and its a bit more cheaper its juist way to high for a handheld plus a memory card.

It really isn't that expensive for a handheld and a memory card, and it might be worth waiting for reviews to say that every one of the 20 launch games do not count as a "good game".

Until I see some really good original games (other than ports and remakes) and when the thing is affordable then will I buy the system but for now my PSP, 3DS, and DS had me cover.

Some people are ok with a $250 price tag, just not enough to keep a handheld system from failing. If it costs too much, the general public just isn't going to buy it, period.

Sony better drop the price. Hell, Nintendo had to. Why would anyone think repeating Nintendo's screw up was a good idea in the first place?

I think you're using backwards reasoning. Nintendo was worried about a similarly priced more powerful competitor. This, as well as less than optimal sales scared them into the price drop. Sony is the more powerful competitor, and the price is more than fair for the hardware they are giving out, while the 3DS wasn't.
