    The PSVita has to stop being promoted as a video game device, .
    they need to focus on the other neat stuff it does.

    Yes, a full ad extolling the Vita's paperweight properties is in order.

    they didn't admit it was doing bad, they admitted that they need to do a better job promoting it.

    cut the price by 50$, get rid of the stupid 3g (and yah I own a 3g vita, not for the 3g of course) and get some of those many studios sony owns to start pumping games out. nintendo imo just gave a big boost to the wii u with the nintendo direct, sony could go to E3 and do the same.

    -price cut
    -games
    -ditch 3g
    -games
    -show off all of its features
    -GAMES DAMNIT

    There needs to be a new USN rule where, if citing a source, the source title should be used to title the thread. Could vastly reduce the number of Valwin troll threads...

    I predicted the poster of this thread, some of the content, and the responses it generated before clicking it. Except for the last one, this thread didn't disappoint.

    We could just revoke Valwin's USN posting rights.

    It's not so much that the system cost too much or there aren't enough good games yet, it's the fucking proprietary memory cards thats the real deal breaker for most people, Sony really did shoot themselves in the foot by doing that

    and it's not even for anti-piracy reason either, nintendo let's you use a regular SD card on your 3DS and it still isn't fully hacked yet (not even close) they just wanted more money

    Yeah, that was actually what stopped me from buying one some six months back, since I knew a meager 4gb wasn't going to be enough.

    I honestly forgot about the memory cards. I wouldn't mind if they were ps vita exclusive, just make them reasonably priced is all I ask. 32GB DOES NOT need to be 100$

    If they added the ability to control someone else's life, it'll possibly sell better.

    Or maybe they can stop trying to make it into a multimedia device and just focus on making it a gaming device.. which basically cuts down the cost in the end.

    Dark days indeed.

    Wow, the Sony team is a regular group of detectives.

    It's not doing well because it's overpriced and has no games. Also, Sony's last attempt to remedy the no games thing ended up in PSASBR.
    The solution is to fire their entire marketing team and start from scratch. Otherwise it pretty much has no hope.
