Seems like a few topics come up on here every day about "the Vita needs such-and-such". Then we had that topic a week or so ago about Ken Levine tweeting about Bioshock Vita, and some people thought that wasn't a system seller. One person thinks a game will get non Vita owners to purchase a Vita while someone else says it won't help. If we had to come to a consensus as a group, what is the one game?

Only fair I go first, but I'm taking the easy one: Grand Theft Auto.

I feel like where nintendo had the same issue with the 3DS when it launched they did things like the price drop and the loyalty program (the 5 free NES and 5 Free GBAgames) for those that purchased at full price. And then said people they were sorry but they promised good stuff was on the way. And they were and the system exploded.

I feel like Sony needs to do something similar. They've left things too long and they're not making any apologies. They're not acknowledging there's an issue and they're making very empty promises. The system's been out for well over a year now and it's still feels like it's severely lacking in a lot of departments.

I think it's going to take a lot more than a killer app or The One game to get people to buy the system like crazy. Lets start with memory card pricedrop. It's insane what they're charging for that and it's ahuge turn off.

I have a lot of expendable income but I don;t see any value in what they're doing there, Every time i think of buying a new memory card I think about where else I could spend the exact same money and i realise why should I spend $50 plus for a system with games I don't want or already played on the consoles or psp.

Sony needs to make a damn good value statement or this thing is going to be very niche with little support. Like it is now.

Let's assume the price is already dropped to $199 okay?

For me it's a legit Call of Duty.

Followed by announcements of

Borderlands
Bioshock
Mass Effect
etc.

The memory card prices need to be fixed too.

While i dont necesarily agree with the games you mentioned, I do agree it will take more than one game to fix. Add ads to this list.
