    Though the PlayStation Vita is still suffering from low sales in Japan, Sony has been encouraged by the improved fortunes of the 3DS.

    Every console so far has taken a few months to get a solid base of users and content. Nice to see that kind of commenting (down to earth yay!).

    Having the good fortune of a friend having one, I must say it's a lovely device and I hope it picks up soon. Now bring me some games I want and I'll throw some money in Sony's direction.

    if they want to improve they need to lower the price and get some games on the system

    Yeah, go kill that "handheld has no futur!" everyone is saying.
    I like it when Sony say things like that.

    In this case, it benefits Sony to compliment the 3DS. It's a continuation of the "If Nintendo did it, so can we!" theme, just in a new direction.

    Quote the whole article next time chris - It's more a commentary on Smartphone competition against dedicated consoles


    It hasn't even had a Western launch so your second point is slightly redundant. The Vita's main competitor has been out for a year now and it still lacks more than a handful of games of note. That's pretty bad...

    It's also a continuation of their "3DS and Vita aren't competing" thing.

    Thinking positively. That's the way to go, even if it involves saying you are encouraged by the competition.

    Personally i hope the vita becomes a success. Its truley a great piece of hardware leagues above the 3ds and with the dual analogs its certainly gonna be a fps haven. However if sony doesnt lower those prices upon the north american release i cant picture people spending 300$ + for a handheld device when they can get an xbox360/ps3/3ds/wii ect for a fraction of that cost.

    Of course they'd say this, rather than admit defeat. If it was Nintendo, they'd still say something to that effect, except with the 3DS.

    Only time can tell whether this comment holds true.

    I dislike the weird structure of that post...
    This put together (by the article writer) make it sound like Ryan is saying: "No the 3DS is not a threat to Vita, since Vita has quality, immersiveness, rich experience etc. that exceeds the 3DS and other smartpnhones" (like the 3DS even was a smartphone).
    So yay for Sony for making a classy statement, nay for the article writer to put it together like that.

    If they are two distinct markets one should have little impact on the other. Sony wants to have their cake and eat it too.
