Sony can't afford to cut the price right now....wouldn't really be financially smart...

JoGam2356d ago

The price will be cut one day. Everyone knows this. Now when it does, the Vita WILL pick up momentum. Now I am not sure when is the right time to cut price.

Hisiru2356d ago

We need new games and not a price cut.

Theo11302356d ago

It needs both a price cut and great games, $250 for that device is too much. Sure sony will lose some money, but the opposite is worse where they don't get it into more hands, for people to buy games. Selling games is where sony make their money through license fees.

"250 for that device is too much"

wut? thats retarded, sure thing is 99$ for 32gb mem card is in fact too much, they should drop it between 69-75$, but the console itself...hell no.

the price for such a device is perfect, if you dont agree then go do something else with your money since you are simply out of touch.

Didn't it launch like two months ago and E3 is around the corner so we should wait and see if it deserve a price cut.

Quality Software sells hardware.

I need Bethesda to put a Fallout game on it, and I'll buy it at whatever the price is now. I thought the UC game was going to have online, but it didn't happen. All it needs is a killer app for it but imo it doesn't so, a price cut is what's needed--imo of course...

It'll be a combination of proper price strategy, decent selection of titles all executed on the correct time.

They probably can considering the sales they get from the memory cards and by it being profitable to Sony from day one despite earlier articles like Andisang that claimed it didn't.

I think will see it happen come E3 this year.

It just needs a high profile, very popular title.

We all know a CoD game is coming for the Vita. Like it or loath it, that will shift a ton of units.

FragGen2356d ago (Edited 2356d ago )

The Vita is a heck of a piece of hardware for 250. A price cut now would be dumb. Lower the price on mem cards and just put some marketing and more games behind it and we're golden.

Double post but I'll make use of and it say that I was wrong about the pricecut, the 3DS did take a lost when it cut it's prices. My bad, NYC.

tigertron2356d ago

They should cut the price of the memory cards.

bakagaijin782356d ago

A wider variety of games need to be released, and I also think that they need to hurry up and get all PS1 classics working on it. I'm enjoying my Vita, but seriously, it needs more software.

dboyman2356d ago

I agree, except PS1 classics should have been there Day 1, better PSP compatibility, and more non gaming apps would help too. Even 3DS e-shop had productivity apps too.

FriedGoat2356d ago

There was no 3DS eshop.
I had to wait months for the 3DS store.

dboyman2356d ago

@FriedGoat True but still its there now. Sony needs to hurry things along, to as they say get the ball rolling....

Knushwood Butt2356d ago

More software would be good, but to be honest, I already have a backlog.

Need to beat:

Gravity Daze
Unit 13
Motorstorm RC (which is a lot of fun)

TENTONGUN2356d ago

ps1 and ps2 classics. i like the vita cause i know it will get better. the waiting is bs though

SoundGamer2356d ago (Edited 2356d ago )

The price is perfectly fine.For the technology, it is actually underpriced. Once E3 unveils more games, and more features are enabled, I'm sure it will pick up pace.
