Sounds like the Vita isn't doing as well as Sony would have liked it to have done otherwise they'd be tooting their own horn about how many were sold in North America and Europe.

I liked the Vita when I played with the demo unit at Best Buy, but with the ridiculous price, terrible selection of launch titles, horribly marked up memory cards, and lack of porting your PSP games to it, I'd rather get a 3DS.

I don't know why people are bashing the launch titles, especially with Gravity Rush being given a 38/40 by Famitsu and Uncharted.

And how many super awesome fun games did 3ds launch with!? Exactly.... 0... I own a vita with just about everyone released so far and I love it... Yea memory cards are expensive but if you buy the hard copy of games it takes very little space.... Give it another 6 to 7 months and that will show the true Test of the hardware! Keep it up Vita!!

Yeah, I'm not sure why it would matter unless you had to install data or bought nothing but digital copies. If anything, this will make people who pirate games have to pay for more space if they want to have many games at the same time, and discourage digital downloads.

You do realize certain games force you to buy cards?

OK, im seriously tired of people complaining about $250 for dual touchscreens, dual analog stick equipped Super BA OLED screen, I mean common people, you pay more for crappy Google Tablets and ipads!!!!
Yesterday, while i was in Gamestop playing with the demo Vita, 5 Vitas were sold. In a town with a population of 200k in one of the 2 gamestop stores, not to mention the walmart we were next to that also carries the Vita, SERIOUSLY 5! I have never ever seen a console flying off the shelves in a store like that, not even the Wii!!!

I'm not sure why you're comparing a hand held gaming device to a tablet when you should be comparing it to something similar such as the Nintendo DS / 3DS. If you want to push the boundaries a bit you could even compare it to the Xperia Play.

$250 is quite a bit of money, add on to the fact that games range between $30-50 and that some of those games require you to purchase a memory card that has marked up prices and are not using an industry standard, thus meaning you're forced to go with Sony or a 3rd party rather than what's already currently available.

A lot of people are still ignorant to the fact that the world has undergone, and still is undergoing a financial instability. It's not as easy to just throw down that kind of cash so it doesn't matter what it has over something else that makes it shinier than the other. The fact of the matter is for that price tag, I could get a DS or 3DS and a couple of games solely based on the Vitas price tag alone. This makes the DS more appealing (for me anyways) at the moment than the Vita.

Don't quite see that as saving money and depening on how and when you bought that stuff, also how and who you sell it to, you could just be losing money. I really want the vita but after I buy it and a game, I won't have money for a memory card of the size I want :[ P.S. I saved some money but I should have cut back a little more (my poor stomache) >.> might give it 4 more weeks of ramen dinners.

If I can't port the PSP games I bought onto this thing, it's useless for me. Simple as that. Obviously ~70 million PSP owners feel the same. LOL
