Yes, but IMO, it's the software that's lacking.

IMO they can charge at what they offer the system at right now only if there were more non gaming features unlocked and more core software the majority wants (a "real" COD", GTurismo Vita, a full blown WRPG).

They should drop it by 50 and then bundle it honestly at this point they might as well do what they did with the PS3 because they really need the 3rd party support.

I will be buying a Vita when it can finally be hacked and be used to play roms. I'm serious, I have never had interest in PSP or Vita games. I'm confident I am not alone in this?

They need to start bundling 8gb cards for free and slash the memory cards prices by half.

Reviews are a metric of quality. Sales are a metric of popularity.

At this point Sony could give it for free and people still wouldn't care.Market has changed drastically in last few years.

Yes, the price is affecting vita sales. Maybe it's alright if vita bundled with at least 8gb memory, but it's not. The price for its memory ridiculously high. And on top of that, we must admit that its game library is still lacking.
But yeah, vita is still an awesome device, but it'll be more awesome if sony can cut its price and get support from as many developers as possible.

Uh, yes? Of course it does. This is basic economy.

Undoubtedly. The console itself is usually retailing at around £180 now, which I think is perfectly reasonable. I'd say even up to £200.00 is fair for the quality of the system.

Sony shot themselves in the foot with the storage and game pricing though. £40 for a 16gb memory stick? Very few people will be paying that. And as for games, they're for the most part priced the same as home console releases. It's too much.

A man in his thirties blaming poor Vita sales on Ninendo fanboys.

Is this funny or sad?
