Will Sony eventually turn around the Vita?

All we've been hearing from them is "We're shifting towards indies and Remote Play in the West."

I don't think Vita will ever turn around. It might start selling a little better in time. Gaikai might change everything but I think Sony said they don't know if its possible to bring Gaikai feature to EU.

The Vita's pretty much been downgraded from its own handheld console to a PS4 remote now. Sorry to say it, but it's true.

I speak the truth, deal with it.

Turn around as in exactly what?

3DS hardware sales and have Pokemon/Mario/Zelda/MH4 level of sales?

Never.

It will continue to chart below 3DS/PS3/4/360/X1 world wide, forever until it gets discontinued or replaced another device.. with the occasional bump in sales topping the Wii U a few times maybe (from here on).

Gee, I dunno TC.

Will you ever stop making topics about it?

I don't see it occasionally topping the Wii U for much longer now that Windwaker HD has come out as well as Pikmin 3 (the sales are starting to pick up). I mean, sure Killzone came out not too long ago but the future isn't that bright in terms of big name games for the Vita, which is a shame..

It will never win any console wars except against the OUYA or Shield but it looks like it will build a respectable library of good games.

At least not with the PS Vita 2k version, if the pictures of its Japanese launch really is as poor a showing as they seemed.
