If Sony manages to turn it around then yes.

Please tell me you're kidding. The PSP had Monster Hunter. The real question should be "Exponentially, how much less will the Vita sell than the PSP?"

Those were a different time. When the PSP was release, they were no iPhones, iPod Touch, smartphones and tablets. A lot of people bought the PSP to listen to music, watch movies and browse the Internet.

Exactly. The market, especially the western market, has changed. None of the 6th graders I teach ever have dedicated portables on them. It's all tablets and smartphones. And they only seem to talk about tablet and smartphone games.

I'm sure Vita's attach rate for software will be much higher than PSP's, but it won't ever come anywhere close to the 75 million+ units PSP has sold.

As if browsing the web was really even manageable on the psp's POS browser. Even with the home brew browser app it was still crap and useless browsing the web.
