No, this isn't a flopic. I want to know the opinions of the Vita owners and/or fans. Is this a bad sign? What, in your own opinion, can Sony do to change this, if anything at all? Is it too late?

Software: Release a really big game and not a castrated version of it.

God of War/ Uncharted with at cinematics as good as UC2/3 and MP (50 Bucks MSRP).

Gran Turismo VITA.

Beg Kojima to make a good original MGS for it.

Bribe Bethesda and/or Rockstar for a good Skyrim/GTA Vita

or make the VITA a pure android device that still has all the VITA features with good html 5 video support on the browser. <-- being able to stand against any other 5-7 inch popular tablets/pmps.

lastly, drop the core/bundle price to 199.99.

Permanently slash 25% off accessories.

I don't know if he is an agent, but he sure is killing Sony from the inside.

They are going to support the Vita just like they did with the PSP and PS3. What they need to do is kill the PSP off and let everyone know when the price drop is going to happen cuz if that happens the Vita will sale a lot bettter

A price drop plus heavy advertising would stop the vlopping.

But both of those things would cost Sony a lot of money, which they don't have.

I'm pretty sure they're still making quite a bit of money from the PSP (more than they're getting from the Vita, anyway). Can they afford to discontinue it? Most third-party developers would rather go for the PSP than the Vita, anyway.

Killing the PSP off would be idiocy. They sell at least 3 times as many PSP's a week than they do Vitas, plus they cost less to make, which means a greater profit per unit sold.

Look at the list of games coming out on the PSP in Japan.

It is cheap to make a PSP now and it is selling decently and has 3rd party support (in Japan at least).

Radiant Historia is a amazing game and deserves more recognition.
