The fact that the Vita didn't go through a price drop or get backwards compatability yet amazes me. Considering it has almost no games and doesn't seem to be getting anything large in the near future, I'm rather surprised. Not that a price drop would justify purchasing the (currently) paper-weight. Backwards comparability, however, would.

Step it up, Sony.

Vita cannot have backwards compatibility because of the back touchpad.
Oh and no games? Nah more like JRPGs only.
Vita cannot compete with phones and the 3DS it's more for a niche group, for people that like to play jrpgs only.

Sadly, it doesn't even receive that many JRPGs. 3DS has been getting a ton, though...
Gravity Rush and Persona 4 Golden have been the only great games, imo.

Yeah the 3Ds is a better buy. Not to mention the ridiculous memory card prices for the Vita.
Only reason I would pick up a Vita is for the Ps4 remote play and the cross buy and play with PS3/PS4.

In other words, Sony's solution for Playstation is to cut costs on internal development and research. And sell branded PC components for a high price, earning money from the "first sale".

Thank you so much, everyone who thought the Xbox was a good deal. Thanks to you, we can have inflated prices on PC games, and lower quality on the games we do get, with even more drm on top of it compared to before. Just think - pay for your internet connection twice. And get advertisements served to you even when you pay for full access to the dashboard! It's such a great idea!

Of course, not to forget that every game needs to be even more "westernized" and dumbed down to sell, of course. That's just how the market works. Clearly, Sony is right on board with their core audience on Gaf and the IGN message-boards now.

Yes, the vita has no games. Yep who cares about the fact that its only been a year compared to 3ds 2 or 3 years.

I think Sony and Nintendo are both struggling with the handheld market because the introduction of smartphones has shaken things up and apps have cut into the market.

As if. At the very least they can put backwards compatability on and cancel the touchpad. If they wanted to get creative they could let you map it as a joystick, or map particular motions like up/down/left/right as buttons.
But to say they can't make it work is ridiculous.

It is a shame about BC. I have a Vita, but it's been sitting at home for so long because I'm too busy loving GT2 on my phone! Sony could literally be making money off me and keeping me playing their console, but as long as it's not on Vita, I can get it elsewhere :\
