The Vita Has Not Yet Begun To Live

The Vita is Doomed. The Vita is Dead. The Vita Will Fail. Much like many US gamers, I’ve been watching and reading up on Vita related news, especially since the Japanese release. I’ve seen a major uprising of “The Vita Is Doomed” news articles based solely off 3 weeks of sales in Japan. I can’t help but recall similar claims about the 3DS, the PSP, the PS3 and consoles in general. I say “The Vita has not yet begun to live.”

As with many other things in life, a thing’s success is often measured by personal observation as much as anything else. Some things are universally considered to be bad products such as Nokia’s NGauge and Sega’s Dreamcast. Others are considered failures by most of the community but are still accepted as decent products like the Gamecube. Then we come across products that can be hotly debated as to the success or failure such as the PSP.

Agreed, probably the best Vita article I have seen for quite some time.

The only blemish was the Dreamcast being compared in the same line as the Ngage. That was just a big no, no. lol!
