Vita(l) Signs Are Slipping! We’re Losing Him!

GXC: "[Sony] birthed [the Vita], filled with all the potential and just left it to die. Sony needs to turn it around. Quite how Sony plans on doing this is a mystery to me; And probably Sony too...

So here, right now is my list of things that will resurrect the Vita." (PS Vita)

I'm hoping Sony shows some great third-party releases for the Vita at E3. It desperately needs it.

The article is right, it can't just survive off of the indies and few first party games spread through the year alone.

Vita isn't dying
Wii U isn't dying.

Just wait for E3 for them to announce games and release dates before people are firing harsh comments.

Its not all about games, that price needs to drop. Black Friday proved that many are willing to buy a Vita at $200. Memory card prices are a joke as well. They need to be cut in half.

Neither may be dying, but they're both certainly floundering for lack of games.

Remember how badly the 3DS was doing one year into its life? Nintendo really invested a lot of effort into turning it around, and today, in 3DS' second year, the platform is fantastic.

Sony and Nintendo both need to bring that some level of commitment to the WiiU and Vita platforms, otherwise they both most certainly -will- "fail."

I agree with LogicWins. They need to drop the price of the system, Black Friday showed that a 200 dollar price tag works for consumers and the recent drop in Japan with some releases showed that as well.

I'm hoping for a drop in Memory card prices, but also a 64GB compatible one.

Sony give me a higher capacity memory card... 32GB isnt cutting it anymore. 64GB would be nice.. and announce for VITA.. NBA 2K14, Resident Evil, Dead Space, Monster Hunter, SimCity *No DRM*, Grand Theft Auto, Fallout..

I too have been ready for a 64 gig card.
LOGICWINS  +   954d ago
Yes, were going to need that extra space. Don't be surprised if GTAV turns out to be on the Vita as a cross buy at E3.

Dying? If anything i thinking its just coming to life. A lot of games already and more are coming.

Do people even consider all the damn PSP games that haven't even been mentioned that will no doubt be on the Vita later on with sequels of some kind? Sony has more developer interest than any of the three right now anyway, so why would anyone be worried knowing that also?

I am not worried one bit, it has every thing it needs to exceed except massive sales.

What I find even more stupid is all the games people ask for anyway are just games that are already on PS3.. As usual Sony can never win with what they do. People want more new games but then they just want the same games, just newer....

People always find some angle to complain from but just from knowing all the awesome third party games the PSP had, I am not worried that those same developers have big plans for the PS Vita in the future.

I bought my vita bundle last october for $199, Imo thats the sweet spot for the vita. Cut the price of the system, memory cards, and I choose to believe the first party titles are in development and its only a matter of time until they are revealed.

Kingthrash360  +   954d ago
seems to be picking up steam again since the 3ds announced some first party titles. smh ...the vita is in great shape this guy just wants hits.
sherimae2413  +   953d ago
yeah thats what im also thinking....
after that 3ds direct, alot these good-for-nothing articles are suddenly popping out of nowhere, again.....

well its good that new 3ds games are announced, personally im happy for its fans, but these fanboys and their articles like this are the worst.....

like youve said the vita is in great shape.. and will continue to be a great gaming handheld to those who loved it and appreciate it ^_^
