The price cut & all them sweet games coming will give it a phoenix down.. & Then when the price cut is nation wide, its going to surge in sales having a great selection of titles & a great companion for the PS4

Assassins Creed Liberation sold on Vita as well as Resident Evil Revelations sold on 3DS. Retro City Rampage had the biggest sales on Vita than on any other platform. There are whole bunch of good and great games and small ones via PSM. Even Sony said that digital sales on Vita is doing great, sometimes better than of PS3. The platform may have not so big install base, but it has high attachment rate. Vita also slowly becoming a platform for indie developers.
So it's all OK with the Vita. And even if you still cannot afford one, it's still doing well games- and saleswise.

It's DEAD for now, the best game in Vita's is a PS2 game.. but I'm sure after a worldwide price cut and PS4 release, Vita will be success
