Can online content do miracle to Vita sales like it does to Android devices?

Not likely. Most console/handheld gamers prefer physical, and a surprising amount buy nothing BUT physical.

Digital sales don't necessarily mean that much when the memory cards are so expensive.

Personally (and I think the majority?) prefers physical. The only time I buy digital is because they are on sale, and much much cheaper than retail version.

Sony themselves said that digital sales are strong on Vita and the digital attach rate is high. So I think it's more than viable.

Not when the memory cards are so outrageously expensive. I've nothing against digital downloads and have tons on my 3DS, but I'm much more to avoid it for Vita unless the game is really small or if the deal is really great or free.

Theres a chance. I mean, how come we don't have GTA:SA yet? I can think of a lot of other examples as well.

Absolutely not. Especially when most of our digital content consists of niche ports that have been out on other formats for months or years.

For my 3DS I buy all my games digital but I think I'm going all physical for the vita because of the high price of memory cards and the games on average are larger too.
