[PS]Stop me if you've heard this before, mainstream media says Vita is in trouble. - Page 2

post #11 of 54
It is about games.

What games does the Vita have?

- Asphault...........cool but horrible spam racer games that are even on phones
- EA SPORTS FIFA Soccer............yeah like I can't play this on every other platform out there?
- Touch my Katamari.............no thank you, I don't want to touch.

They just have a horrible launch lineup and I do not see that improving anytime soon. It will be just like the PSP.

Also it comes down to what the PSP Vita can offer.....the 3DS does 3D WITHOUT glasses, what can the PSP Vita do? .............ohhhh touch screen, like I have never seen that on every darn phone out before!

I will take the 3DS too.

Will it boost up in sales once they get some decent games, probably, will they have to price drop the system? Well it would certainly help. I still have a feeling that the crown on the mobile market isn't shifting anytime soon, and the market share is unlikely to shift.
Note, you could say everything here down is my personal take on things:
They really don't have the best exclusives... Little big planet was a meh game at best, and the controls in both killzone and Resistance made my brain hurt, even after trying to adjust them I couldn't take it and just returned them to the store. The only good games that I've played on my Playstation 3, and by good I mean I felt content at the end of it was Moto Storm Pacific Rift, very fun racer; and Infamous, which I didn't even pay for, it was given to me due to the Playstation network outage.
To be perfectly honest, the only exclusive that can literally pull its own weight with any real contender in the market is Twisted Metal. I may be a bit biased there, but Twisted Metal made me want a PS3; unfortunately it doesn't look as good as what I once hoped it was.

If you remember PS2 was out selling PS3 for a long time before PS3 started to gain momentum, and now its getting really close to passing 360 in worldwide sales even with a year later launch. It may even pass the Wii someday.

Oh I'm not debating that, and I do remember that, I was just saying that the fact of the old gen out selling the new gen means you are doing something wrong. I'm sure when the 3DS launched, whatever was the most recent DS at the time was either out selling it, or close to it. What I was saying was: Sony needs to do something, or they will not sell as many Vitas as they thought they were going to.

2005 all over again. Sony's handheld is inconvenient, buggy and overpriced. it will have watered down, incomplete versions of the Sony home console games(ridge racer game shipping with THREE cars and FIVE courses).

even Nintendo could not make a $250 handheld pop, and had to lower the price. $200 is the historic acceptability limit for these.

Somehow I'm not surprised. I wasnt even aware that it got released. There wasnt any announcement at ebgames/gamestop either.

PS2 was KING with a bottomed out price and robust library when PS3 came out. PS3 was the product the overpriced, under delivering Sony(where before it was priced well but still over hyped) following their experiments with multimedia, HDD and XMB on the PS2(called PSX in japan).

the GBA was KING when the DS came out, and had bottomed out prices and a robust library.

the PSP was not a winner, to be selling less than a loser is baaaaad.


the PSP sales stalled pretty early in its run, and it was probably the most traded in system in the last ten years as well. to be selling less already is bad. and the VITA is not sold out, so that doesn't explain the numbers.

Ridge Racer is one game. It's not proven to be wide spread buggy? There has been almost no complaints about it from any users besides like 1-2 on neogaf that have it, in fact they talk very highly of it. Also its superior to PS3 in many ways, already has way more options with its OS, like cross game chat, if anything its an upgrade ( it has twice the ram ).

same type of retort people use to give for the PSP when the flaws came out just after launch.

history is repeating before my eye, how cool.
