Five Strategies That Could Help the PS Vita Succeed

From the featured article:

"Sony recently announced that it had just reached 2.2 million worldwide PlayStation Vita sales. The company stated that the PSP successor was right on track as expected, but Kaz Hirai also said that the device wasn’t very popular in some regions. In the past, I’ve been pigeonholed as a Vita detractor, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. I want the Vita to succeed, and I would very much like to be a Vita owner someday. Unfortunately, several factors have kept me and many others from making that expensive commitment. Here are five strategies that Sony should employ to get some more Vitas off the shelf." (PS Vita, Sony)

More marketing and cute characters. Market to families Sony, it will payoff big time.

the marketing team assigned for the PSVita sucks big time, in youtube at the psvita channel, they post advertisements of games with footage, but not from the PSVita WTF?

look at this video and notice the huge letters "not game footage" DAFUQ?
