It's quite obvious that is due to the price. Just like when the 3ds came out.

It's quite obviously the price. Just look at the 3ds. History repeats itself.

The 3DS was the same price as the Vita but was never doing this badly

Most people probably got their vita stuff off amazon recently considering how cheap it was during black friday and such.


Either are likely. I feel bad for buying my Vita games digitally, but I have a 32 gig card, and I like to play ad hoc multiplayer with my brother, so it makes more sense to buy digitally, as we are both on the same PSN.

Very true. But.. Nintendo handhelds are always going to do better and thats fine. I think business would be respectable if they changed to a more accessible price point.

Games like uncharted or need for speed for example. It's very close to console quality on the go and every person who sees it says it looks and plays like a hand held ps3. It's really a bummer that its not doing better because the system itself is far superior to anything else in the handheld gaming genre. I think the main problem is that your average person sees a 250 kindle hd for the same price and 9 times out of ten will spring for the kindle. I think sales would blow up if it was 200.00 with free memory but the systems price is perfectly acceptable considering the cutting edge tech. Obviously the memory cards do not fall into that category.


you have no idea why the system is doing so poorly do you?


it's price and the cell gamer rise. he's right, most people will go for the phone games rather than buy a new device for $250.

We need some real blockbusters to sell it, not the junk we've been getting. The shooters so far have been awful. AC:L was okay, but riddled with glitches. No good original rpg's yet. cross play has been implemented rather poorly (and they advertise that as the selling point).

Honestly, most gamers nowadays are casuals and they are not going to buy vita. it is not in any way a casual system.

I went to pick up assassins creed at my local kmart

it's no surprise the cashier hasn't sold Vita games before.. WHO THE HELL STILL SHOPS AT KMART? There are none left in my area and if there were it would not be my go to place for games on any system.

It was also the only next gen handheld on the market during that time. Where as the Vita had to compete with a recently price dropped and much cheaper competitor. The memory card issue didn't help either. Price absolutely played a large role in the whole affair.
