Worried about the Vita's future

So Sony put out their sales projections for the next fiscal year and only project 5 million PSP's AND Vitas to be sold. Thats pretty terrible. So my question for everyone is do you think that this is a sign that Sony realizes that things arn't going well for the Vita? Could also be a hint that they arn't planning to drop the price on it either. I really love my Vita so I really hope that they arnt giving up on the system.

I have trouble falling asleep some nights, riddled with the worry for the future of Sony, Inc.'s latest handheld video game platform the PlayStation Vita, also, too. Those are some worrying fiscal reports. I really hope things turn out better for these multinational billionaires at Sony, Inc.

PSP and PS3 had slow starts, but then they did fine once the prices dropped and more games were released.

 

We'll see what happens in the future. As someone who is thinking about getting a Vita, I hope things will get better for it.

the only way to save the vita is lower the price on both handheld and cards. if no price reduction this year will be death for the console.

I think Long Term is the goal here. Not too worried, yet.

Yea long term is important but the PSP didnt struggle like this in its first year and a half. In fact the PSP sold more in 6 months in the US than the Vita has to date.

To sum it up, the Vita needs a price drop or the memory cards need a price drop. Just a few more bucks and you can buy a brand new PS3 console (sometimes with a game and a move/eye included).

The pricing scheme for the Vita is absolutely absurd.
