Soooo.... Instead of lowering the vitas price to raise the numbers being sold, they just lowered their expectations? I don't get it? At $250 Nintendo was still selling more 3DS than Sony is Vitas in the same time frame but still chose to lower the price of the 3DS now in Japan the 3DS is selling 35-1 and in the US 2-1, does this not make Sony rethink their marketing and price point at all? Or is Sony so hard up for money that they can't risk lowering the price of the vita even though it's dieing off in many ares? The vita is a great system but Sony needs to rethink how they are supporting it. They had the same problem with the PSP.

Here's the problem with the Vita.
A majority of the games are just ports.

Also, stick to what you're good at Sony. Consoles.
And same to Nintendo. Stick to handhelds. Or remember what you did with the N64 and try again.

I agree mate the vita is stunning i love it immensely but I cant help but that think Sony’s made a flurry of *bleep* up’s from the start that they cant recover from! If people are hacking/ rooting PSP’s to get PS one game’s release them on launch then they would have had twice the amount of games and people would be playing for stuff they already produced years ago easy money plus would mean less people hacking to get them.
on release you should of had a firs person like Killzone or call of duty this would of made it almost an instant success from the start. Instead for some reason they brought out kids games on lets face it an adults hand held. why bother with dual analog sticks if there was no FPS plus I don’t think many people like resistance its a poor story line.
another one which i don’t think they have thought about how much people are willing to pay for games £40 your taking the piss £30 is more than acceptable i would buy one every month no problems for that price they are being greedy. lure us in first not put us off. also some games which cost £12 on PS3 cost £30 on vita for £12 I would have given it a try £30 not a chance.
memory card again I don’t care about the different format but if Sony are trying to get people to digitally download then why making memory cards so expensive I don’t get it updates have been slow no wonder why I pads and phone are winning .
I go away a lot and think this will be awesome next time i go to Afgan but I am starting to think it wont be around by the time i get out there. I just wish that someone from Sony reads this and takes it in before it fails.

That said, however, Sony has been experiencing difficulties in gaining third party support for the Vita.
I'm guessing third party companies aren't finding the sales numbers to be acceptable. I think that's going to be the key issue here. If the general specs aren't enough to entice them then showing them a strong customer base would likely work to their favour.

Sony can't and won't lower the price. They are already selling the vita at a tremendous loss (unlike Nintendo who where selling the 3DS at profit and could afford to slash prices so radically).

They didn't do it with the grossingly high priced PS3 and they won't do it for the vita. Not until they are in a position to do so anyways.

The Vita isn't doing well because of its price and its lack of must get titles. Sony won't lower the price because then they would be selling at a loss. Unless they take a chance like Nintendo and decide to do that. Many of the games are ports and if you already have the game for another console why would you buy it again.

sony is already selling the vita at a loss. They never sell their consoles at profit during the start of their life cycle. That's why they can't afford a price drop unlike Nintendo.
