    Let's get this out of the way, this year hasn't been good to the Vita at all. It was ignored at E3, a no show at Gamescom, and a decent showing at this year's Tokyo Game Show. Many wonder if Sony really does plan to get rid of the Vita. But according to Sony's UK boss the handheld console is here to stay.

    So while the Vita is here to stay we shouldn't really expect more AAA releases on the system for now on.
    It's a shame to know that a great handheld like the Vita will never find a market. I also doubt Minecraft will do anything for the system. What do you guys think about this?

    hahahaha i laugh everytime i see minecraft ported to some non selling console because no dev wants to actually release anything on it, if sony wants to force people to buy the vita, then they can add L2/R2 buttons to it, switch the ps4 controllers to the "new" modded vitas, increase the ps4 price a bit, and tada.

    also:
    No, that's not the joke, the very existence of the Vita IS the joke.

    Minecraft is one of the most successful IPs. It's not really a joke. :/

    I mean, I used to play Minecraft, but come on...Porting it on every console is becoming really lame.
    And I second that, the PSVita's existence is a joke...The worst joke ever.

    Sony, just admit Vita's a failure and that it's destined to be PS4's secondary controller. Everyone will accept it.

    Just like everyone will accept the fact that the 3DS could be a potential second gamepad for the Wii U except the 3DS does have games!

    Are you kidding? When I see the thing about Smash, and the fact that there is a New 3DS I smell the whole " Your old 3DS will become a pad for your Wii U". I'm just stating an opinion. As for the Vita it does have games, but it's not targeting the customers from outside Japan. When I see JRPG games, Rythmn games, some ports. It does tell me that it's not what the customers from outside Japan wants except for some people. ( I would like to have a PSVita if there were more Japanese game translated overseas...but nevermind, Sony doesn't care about the Vita.)

    ( Edit : By the way, i'm not trolling at all.)

    Sony can say all they want about the Vita being here to stay but the Vita has been out of stock at pretty much every store here in the states for MONTHS now. Hard to convince people when there are literally no systems available to be bought.

    It would be funny if they released a "New Vita" like Nintendo did with 3DS.

    I forgot
    ...you are aware that's because they're selling out right? Stores aren't just not carrying it, they're literally selling out of the stock they have.

    They might not have a lot of stock or something, but it's selling and not just disappearing.

    As for the news, meh. I like my Vita, I like the games it gets, so I don't care.

    I still use my Vita more than my 3DS nowadays, it just has more of what I want to play. The only Thing making me come back to 3ds this year is Pokemon and Persona Q
