"In a refreshing show of honesty, Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida admitted that sales for the PS Vita were slow, very slow, and that a large part of it had to with smartphones and tablets."

“To your question, I was asked during TGS how badly this hurts portable gaming consoles, and my answer was – quite. Quite badly. There’s no question.”

“We don’t necessarily talk about catching up to the 3DS – but we’d like to increase the installed base of PS Vita."

Where is the article that contains:

"Sony Admits PS Vita Sales Hurt By Overpriced memcards, horrible advertising, and extremely lean library"

?

If these execs are going to be honest, then dont just complain and blame the external factors you cant control. Take some damn responsibility.

It's funny, people say Vita has no games, yet defend a port to no end like MH3U, then hate on P4: Golden like its a direct, direct port. Hilarious irony.

That's because the 3ds injects small doses of heroin into anyone who uses one. It literally makes people addicted to it. Sony has moral objections to drugging their fans, and this is the thanks we give them.
