We really dont need wannabee reporters. This is getting VERY old.


Old? This is a new article.

This is also the FIRST time that Sony admits vita sales is "below expectation".

We also all that it is bad .. BUT Sony admitting it .. is a big step.


Umm wow. Didnt think i needed to explain... But ok. I meant ppl that feel the need to report news to the board like ppl cant find it themselves is old.

"Chatting candidly with French website Lemonde, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida revealed that the platform's sales are “below expectations”.

“Consumers now have multimedia devices, such as smartphones,” the outspoken executive noted. “These devices include the ability to play, and it is difficult for us to justify the purchase of an additional machine.”

"In another, almost defeatist snippet, Yoshida lamented the changed focus of mobile developers: “With the rise of mobile gaming, studios have started to transition, allocating more resources to this type of production,” he added. “Even if the creators want to develop games on the Vita, they unfortunately have fewer resources to do so. One solution is to encourage the support of the platform by smaller development studios.”




I don't get it Facts. What exactly do you want? What is the purpose of your posts? Is there any? Do you just want to get a rise out of people?

If the vita does well will you post positive articles? If it goes under what will you do for a living with no more news to report? You have a lot invested in this system...

This is good. Now they'll focus on more ways to boost sales and support. Might make them think outside the box.


I don't that's possible at this point. The days of dedicated handhelds seem over.

I really wish you trolls had something better than "waaaah, Sony fan boys angry again". I've yet to see one user justify the abysmal sales. The majority of posters even engage in positive rhetoric to discuss what Sony does wrong and how to potentially improve. That is a far cry from "Sony does no wrong"

You trolls just want to antagonize (as is your pathetic job I guess) rather than contribute. I'd say you should be embarrassed of yourselves but you probably don't have the social graces or comprehension skills to understand your crimes...
