5 Ways for the Vita to Gain Momentum

The Vita isn't dead but it definitely has some troubles. Here are some ways it can hopefully bounce back.

Raise public awareness. (Don't go viral.)

Constantly "bang the drum" of the game libary. The Vita has an impressive catalog of games, and it also supports a number PS1 titles and over 250 PSP games. Make a master list of all this software and then beat people over the head with it.

Inform people of all of the great games, and amazing (presumably) upcoming games. Hype Destination Playstation next month. Increase cross-play/buy support. More apps for people who use it for that. Support the Japanese market by paying whatever it costs for an ad-hoc HD Monster Hunter (Japanese commuters love that sh*t). ADVERTISE the non-gimmicky side of it. Just because Nintendo succeeded with the Wii doesn't mean gimmicks are the only thing that sells.

These articles are so shady. You know how the Vita can gain momentum ? if people weren't harping like crows on its flaws. Yes, It DOES have flaws, but it gets out weighed by the experiences of playing its GAMES and the smoothness of the interface.
Right when you open on it and see the OLED you know, #### the press it's hot!

Price cut to 150-200€

Drastic price cut on memory cards!!!

Release big AAA Vita exclusives like Killzone, Gran Turismo, Final Fantasy, Metal Gear or God Of War.

Keep the good work with PS+.

Let piracy TO SOME EXTENT in the system. Every #1 console is pirated and that doesn't stop those systems from selling. Just the opposite, it helps boost sells. (I'm gonna have a lot of disagrees for this last point, I know...but allowing PSP ISOs would help the Vita while not hurting that bad PSP).

All of these great ideas!! Sony needs to step it up on the vita in general. I dont know what it is with sony and advertising this gen. But it needs to get off its ass. They have some quality products and they are not showing them off correctly.

They are absolutely terrible at advertising, it seems like most people don't even know what a vita is. Their last good advertising campaign was with Kevin Butler, since then marketing has been pretty dead though.
