PS Vita: 5 Reasons It Will Succeed, 5 Reasons It Will Fail

Opinion blog on factors that will both benefit and harm PS Vita after launch, from NowGamer (PS Vita)

I suppose that's quite fair, it's especially difficult to overlook the App Store and iPhone things.

I'm still getting one though.

Launch day purchase, I don't think Sony will do a 'PSP' with this one in the West.

I say 'The West' as in Japan the PSP did exceptionally well.

Depends what you mean by doing a 'PSP in the West'.

If the marketing is right, and the product and software is right, then it'll sell well.

Don't forget, the PSP has sold more than 70 million worldwide.

It'll 'fail' at first, but then sales will pick up later on its life. In a similar way to the 3DS has recently.

The advantage the Vita has over any other handheld device in history is that it can do everything: core games, iOS-style games and has brilliant connectivity. It can do pretty much anything Sony or third parties can throw at it.

It's just the price that's too high at the moment for real mass market appeal.
