Sony and Vita far from dead.

There’s been an abundance of articles directed at Sony and their latest handheld, the Playstation Vita, and most of them are showing what most people are – idiots.

thats what i thought when i first read it LOL

All the pre-requisites are there for VITA to become a success; it just needs a more concerted effort on the part of Sony to release software that really make owning a VITA a more attractive prospect.

Initiatives like Cross-play etc are really good (and brave) steps in the right direction. Sony can't rest on their laurels on this. The VITA is an incredible bit of kit begging to be utilised. We haven't seen the best of what it can offer yet by any means.

The problem i have with the Vita is the same problem I had with the PSP although great handhelds they never/don't really have that many handheld games by that I mean they always felt like console games. The DS always had those pick up , play for 5 minute games the PSP never had that it always like felt more of a console for me, to the point where I just felt like playing a console instead.

Overall I think the Vita just needs allot of support especially in software. And once again sony needs to market it out the a$$

@Eyeco SOny has released a program called playstation mobile and its a collection of cheap pick up an play games.. Like playstation minis but much better.. If they can educate the public on this program I think it will do wonders for the Vita

I'll not say death at all, but lets talk about this when Sony actually starts doing well, don't lose insane amounts of money and Vita can actually sell at least 3 times than 30k week wordlwide constantly, if nothing of this changes, at some point they'll need to cede...

The more I read about VITA being doomed and failing; I know that is something I can read and find humor in.

It's a stress relieving action. I read the doom and gloom articles. Than I play for hours all the games on my VITA and by the end of my gaming session, I completely forget all the sh** talk and just enjoy having been entertained by what only VITA can do

i never read this crap. i only post to tell people i dig my vita and that its worth every penny. cool thing is its about 1 or 2 killer apps from taking off in sales. people will give in eventually. at the least id say midway in the life cycle. slow but steady start i reckon.

This sounds like a piece I could have wrote. Its pretty badly done and unprofessional.

He's on the money with this article, but I've got to say I'd have preferred it if it had just been a straight out advocation of Sony's long term strategy rather than a 'counter' article. By there very nature, articles like this automatically polarize their readership... but it is nice to see positivity for once.

By and large, the gaming media have very little in terms of 'headliners'. The general media, on the other hand, have so much at their disposal that they're hard pressed to decide which headline to run. The gaming media are left trying to spin the vacuous into something news worthy. Many bloggers are even worse off because they're sources are further limited, and I have to say, sometimes questionable (to say the least).

Generally speaking there is a lack of imagination from the gaming media and more often than not they'll simply rehash the same news, ad nauseum. Hits are king in this bloated, self-centred, indulgent media, so who can blame them for picking the path of less resistance ... Hell, I can, and will continue to do so.

So what can the gaming media do to save itself? I hope they have a long term plan because their credibility is taking hits on a daily basis. Unless they exchange sensationalism for creative thinking, they're doomed to become 'just another poster on the internet'.

But most of the articles lately say that Sony is "d00med" in the game industry.
And that IS trying to predict the future.

The articles haven't been "daily bad news" like you're trying to make it sound. Stop trying to justify all the BS articles that have plagued this site this year.

"Sony should leave the console industry"
"Vita is doomed!"
"Vita [blah, blah] won't save it"
.....these are NOOOOOOT "daily" pieces of news.

tiffac0081859d ago (Edited 1859d ago )

And most of those articles aren't even made by the media. Such is the nature of the internet where anyone can be a so-called journalist.

"The Vita is far from dead"

With it's weekly 10k and below(more or less) sales in Japan, lack of advertisements, and lack of must have games, we'll see about that.

Not sure whats the point of mentioning black ops declassified. That game is going to suck, and it's been gimped compared to the console games.

All Vita games are "gimped" compared to their console counterparts. But compared to their 3DS counterparts? Vita wins by a mile.

MuhammadJA1859d ago

You have very few trolling abilities.

I cant understand why people feel this way, I grabbed this from the sites comments.
Dear sony and its’ fans,

For the sake of humanity, please stop dreaming like we owe you money by spamming us on the internet with your vita ps3 promises we don’t even care. It’s so annoying like a crook selling snake oils. We understand you’re losing the gaming market pie these days, and it’s not gonna help everyone by putting the blame on people not giving you money.

You used to be the king but nothing’s last forever, your era is done, it’s gone. People like us are getting wiser and do not need to listen to your fans who are aggressively posting ‘Opinions’ like gospel of salvation. They might have just felt pissed because your brand name is sinking quick like titanic. We understand they would put the blame on ‘Media’ for bias articles, but we also believe the ‘Media’ don’t owe you and your fans anything.

So please accept the reality that you’re just trying to make profit out of us (including your fans too.) and that you can’t force people to buy your stuff all the time like we’re stupid puppets. NONE of your products can help us (or your fans) getting any money, in fact people are loosing money just for the sake of ‘games’.

In short, we’re not your blind slaves for taking our money for monopoly. Thank you.

Why the hell would they write that? First of all, Sony is a corporation. Businesses need you to buy stuff to survive. Economics 101. Secondly, Sony never forces anything down people's throats. They've been giving away more things lately than charging for it. PS+ is 50 bucks for what must be hundreds of bucks worth of free games (just this summer alone). Online is free, unlike Microsoft. What the hell is that person talking about?

dp2774071859d ago

obviously people didnt like me posting it since it cost me a bubble.

chaos_mechanica1856d ago

Everyone understands dp didn't write this, right? Don't take it out on him!
