Where are the advertisements on TV for PlayStation Vita vs. Nintendo 3DS?

Sony really needs to step up their marketing on why the PlayStation Vita is a better system than the Nintendo 3DS. The easiest way they can do this is by promoting more TV advertisements pointing out all the great things the Vita can do that the 3DS can't. Kinda like how Sega went up against Nintendo during the Genesis vs. Super Nintendo days with all their TV advertisements and marketing.

No one at Sony has told the marketing department the Vita even exists. I haven't seen one TV commercial or print Ad.

Judging by that awful Vita imagine commercial, I'd think it's better off speaking for itself..

I always wonder why they didn't do that. Ads like that are popular. Samsung
did it with their galaxy phone and now it thetop selling android device. Hopefully
during the fall/winter season when sony cuts the price of the vita. They make ads like this and start airing it everywhere constantly

I just want to know...

How do you go from making the single worst commercials in the history of gaming, firing the ad agency that made them to hiring a new company that immediatly comes in a makes even worse commercials?

Sony should probably not market the VITA via CM's. Product placement is a much more effective means of marketing anyway.

Sony never advertises the Vita, and Nintendo doesn't consider it to even be in competition with the 3DS.

I've seen commercials for Assassin's Creed Liberation and that Call of Duty game.

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

That line was more figurative than anything. Obviously there aren't zero ads for the vita, but it's well known that Sony doesn't advertise it nearly as much as they should.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Sony needs to start some ****. Like Sega did in the 90's. Make fun of Nintendo graphics, mock Apple's lack of buttons. Bring some swagger.

Ever if they haven't earned the right to act over-confident they can at least pretend.

Even if I dislike console wars I kind of agree. They need to focus on what the Vita does better than the competition.
