Adults usually are already occupied doing something else when away from home. This means that most people 18 and over game primarily when at home, i know the only time i play games is at my house. I would rather game on my pc with a keyboard, mouse, and 23 inch screen, than a little handheld. That is why i think the vita will not sell all too well. I mean what are people gonna do in their mid 20's, go out bar hopping with their vita?
Yes, I agree. I'm 19 right now (20 next month), and when I'm outside home I'm either going somewhere (and usually listening to music) or already doing something else like being at school or hanging out with my friends. And I can only imagine having even less time as the years ago by.
Sure, you could argue that I could play the Vita at home instead. But when I'm at home I'd rather play on my PC or PS3, especially when a lot of the games that the Vita has are ports of games that already exist on consoles.
