This is why Vita needs a price drop ASAP

Read the first 3 paragraphs. This is the exact same scenario the Vita is in. A price drop could result in a huge turnaround. Discuss.

I'd argue it might have been too long for the Vita (over a year compared to six months), that memory card prices are still prohibitive, that it will suffer as long as the PSP is around because it lacks backwards comparability, and that Nintendo didn't turn itself around with a price cut alone but with a huge influx of high quality software that's still going on to this day.

However, I agree that Vita isn't a real flop yet because it still has a chance to salvage itself. If it took all the necessary and expensive steps. But I don't feel a price drop of the system alone could turn the tide.

A price drop alone wouldn't turn the tide of failure.
Sony is willing to imitate Nintendo on the console hardware / interaction front, but won't follow suit with the Vita. Common sense dictates that the most obvious path to success is to emulate those that have succeeded. In this case cutting prices, pushing the product onto consumers to make ppl aware and most importantly, getting the games out there.
But what am i saying, that makes too much sense. Sony is not having any of that.

y'all need to relax, when they announce the ps4 in a few days they're going to talk about vita's connectivity with it and how they will bundle ps4's and vitas and problem solved.

I've actually wondered if they would bundle with the next PS...would be a good way to push units and get more DEVs on board

A price drop alone will not save the Vita. The Vita needs games that make people want to buy it, and sadly I just do not see this happening at this point.

if they bundled the Vita with the PS4 then they'd be losing money on every Vita bundled unless they jack the price up on the PS4 to cover the price of the Vita.
