Vita is struggling. hopefully it picks up with Vita TV in the west and a Cloud streaming service. a ps4 bundle for $550 would do awesome. i think they shoukd drop the price, lose some money on hardware to make it sell better and get more ppl to develope games for it, and just try to make up the money in software. a risky move, but it needs a larger variety of games b4 the masses buy it.

I don't think the Vita will sell that well. I maybe wrong but I don't see anyone getting excited about the PV TV. I do think its sonys fault the psv has not really gotten up and running. I was very excited about the psv at the start and got it on day one and spent over £300 on the device but it has not really had the games to backup and show off the hardware. Yes it has had a lot of the the big name games but most people don't want to buy games like cod, nfs, ac on a handheld console.

I hope now the ps4 is out we start to see more cross platform games like psasbr where you buy the console game and get the psv game free. But I also think sony need to start bringing out games for everyone like Nintendo have to help it gain market share.

For me the hardware is not touched by anything else on the market at the moment in terms of handheld but it is lacking in games and just like the Wiiu has had the issue with lack of games the sales are low.

should be interesting to see what sony has in store for the psv over the next 12 months.

Agreed 3DS had Mario 3d Land and Mario Kart 7 before PSVita even came out. PSVita now just got their Mario-ish game "Tearaway".

I think it's baffling how people(fanboys) make such a big deal out of these and start a flame war. I have a vita right now. If i had the money, i'd buy the 3ds too since i want to play monster hunter and pokemon. Why compete when at the end of the day, TRUE gamers only want to have fun and rid themselves of stress or use these to calm themselves from problems. Competition is healthy. Hating isn't.

I have a 3DS and no vita, I would love to play monster hunter but refuse to do so until they bring it to the vita, the 3ds is auch garbage

Capcom needs to get on there stuff....they are making aome bad choices....after wii monster hunter I have lost faith in monster hunter on a nintendo console

As much as I agree with you fanboys won't as they are de-void of logic.

As a fellow Vita owner I do look at 3DS sales with envy, as if the Vita was shifting that many units it would get much more support.

I've had the Vita for almost 6 months now, spent my last dime on a 3DSXL because of Mario, Pokémon and Zelda. I'm actually playing more on those systems than on consoles right now!

My vita sucks up my time. Gave my 3DS to my sister. She freaking adores animal crossing.
