"Sony's (NYSE: SNE ) latest handheld game machine sold less than seven million units during its first 12 months at retail. That is less than 10 percent of the 75 million PlayStation Portable units that Sony has sold since 2005. In order for PS Vita's sales to catch up to PSP, Sony would have to sell roughly 10 million units per year for the next seven years."

"In an earnings call this week, Sony EVP and CFO Masaru Kato admitted that the company's strategy is not working."

"Sony will hold an event on February 20 to announce the future of the PlayStation business. It is widely speculated that the company will unveil the first details about its next console and/or the first details about its streaming game service. The company paid $380 million to acquire Gaikai last year, prompting many to speculate that streaming games are in Sony's near-term plans"

Is sony going to refocus on PS4 or its streaming game service, and forget the non-performing vita?

The 3DS and PSVita are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.

Has he posted on this board since he flunked at math in that one topic? I know he's been to the WiiU board but I haven't seen him around here.

Either way we should probably get out the popcorn for this topic.

I am not an early adopter. If your system is as awesome as you say it is, it will still be in stores when the games I want are out.
