Narius, where do you find these obscure no name gaming sites? Do you even have a life or do you just spend all day and night searching every no name website on the internet trying to find anti Sony opinion pieces?

The vita hurt itself with sales. It doesn't have many games that cater to people who aren't into japanese culture or RPG's, the $250 price point made it an obvious no buy, and i don't even think Sony cares about it.


Sony cares enough to openly pointing to publicly state why they think vita is not selling.

Wait ... opinions directly from Sony execs are "anti-Sony"?

If you say so ...

"and once we start the Gaikai service, you’ll be able to play PS3 games on PS Vita"

yeah subject to license agreements so maybe a big chunk of games wont be available for reasons never revealed.

Why dont sony add a simple rule to their license agreements? By publishing a game on the ps3/ps3 platform the publisher hereby agrees sony can distribute the game in any manner they seen fit including online distribution.

are publishers that greedy (wanting to get revenue from extra distribution channels) that they would stonewall the ps4 to avoid such an agreement?

And yet the 3ds is doing just fine?

Admit it Sony that the reason the Vita is doing crap is because you screwed up with it. What you promised to be a portable ps3 has been nothing but reduced down to an indie and ports machine with over priced memory cards. The Vita lost its identity, it doesn't know what it wants to be anymore. Well hopefully the Vita TV thing becomes a success.

Probably yes. I don't think you are that naive and don't think money is driving publishers' decisions.

Plus, the costs of next gen development is only going to increase. Publishers care about their ROIs.
