Will The PS4 Save The PlayStation Vita?

The PlayStation Vits isn’t doing so well right now in terms of sales. The handheld console by Sony is getting close to two years of being on the market and it has yet to hit the initial run of sales. With the release of the PlayStation 4 being only a few months away, could the launch of the PlayStation 4 be what the PlayStation Vita need to start selling?

Sony needs to have a very oriented psvita gamescon show

iamnsuperman1769d ago

I don't think they do. Nintendo has proven that you don't need to show this stuff on a conference. If they just merely mention X,Y and Z titles are coming to the Vita and show of the remote play thing that is fine. The problem is Sony need to concentrate on a PS4 launch right now. I wouldn't mind if they came out with a direct style show and said this is what is coming to the vit and then showed off the games

And hopefully we see something good at Tokyo game show too.

*cough* Persona 5 *cough*

I'd much rather have them focus on the PS4

NexGen1769d ago

Well, if remote play pans out like it's sounding that it will, I am also getting a vita to accompany my ps4.

RioKing1769d ago

Exactly. When I have my PS4, I will have my Vita :D

Vita should be able to save its self.

Timesplitter141769d ago

agreed. If it absolutely needs to live off another console to survive, then it will never really be saved

Becoming a companion to the Playstation 4 is not enough to move Vita units en masse, not enough to encourage developer support, and not enough to save the system.

I agree and I am not sure why Sony do not release a bundle with PS4 and Vita for maybe $50 to $100 more than the One. I know they will take a loss on both systems but just by getting them out there they could recuperate that loss through games.

Also by doing this they could push Microsoft out. People have the choice of going for a PS4 which is $100 less than the One or going for a PS4 with Vita that cost $50 to $100 more than the One (if it is $100 more then they are only losing $50 off a standalone Vita). This would make their competitor's Kinect addition less attractive. It doesn't have to be a permanent thing but a limited one year thing

LOGICWINS1769d ago

Mark my words. If there is ever a PS4/Vita bundle, Sony will take that loss and make it $499 to directly compete with the One.

IanVanCheese1769d ago

There is no way they can afford to make that kind of a loss, at least nowhere near launch.

Don't get me wrong I'd love it to happen but I can't see it.

LOGICWINS1769d ago

^^People said the same thing about the PS4.

TongkatAli1769d ago

You said Project J was going to be a 3DS exclusive. Developer support you say ?

Look at dat 3DS support, spin spin spin this.

NYC_Gamer1769d ago

The PSV needs software and more developer support

LOGICWINS1769d ago

And that won't happen unless it gets more consumer support. Its a chicken and egg scenario. People won't buy Vita if it doesnt have enough software and software makers wont make games for it unless enough people buy the console.

FullMetalTech1769d ago

It wont save it but it will help push it. They really need to stress and show how all the PS4 games can work on it and maybe even incorporate the Gaikai service for remote play on it.
