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 am pretty sure sony has got things under control this year for the vita, if they do not add anything spectacular at this E3, then I will be extremely worried.
Its better for Sony to make a more modest expectation, than to make a nearly insurmountable expectation like selling 50million Vitas in one year.
Don't forget, this just based on trends that Sony keeps track of.
Sony will be releasing 100+ games for Vita in the coming year which might not be factored into it.
I do think Sony should start making more Vita bundles than whats already out there, and drop the 3G model altogether (maybe even introduce a 4G/LTE model?) and lower the prices on memory cards, more than they have already, and get back into advertising.
Honestly even as a long time sony loyalist iv'e given serious thought to selling mine lately...I feel by the time the Vitas game LIbrary is where it should be the handhelds life will near be over.

Well there is one SCEE guy twitting about one AMAZING AAA title coming to the system and that really worries me a lot, why is he excited about only 1 AAA AMAZING title? not not 5? 7? 9? EXCLUSIVE AAA titles coming to the system? and whats up with all the tease? sony needs to release that AAA AMAZING title yesterday, vita needs big games right now, ASAP!!! E3 will decide my faith in the system but i have to be honest is not looking good, i thought this year was supposed to be better than last and it hasnt turned out that way at all, after Soul Sacrifice the next AAA title is Killzone Mercenary, so what are we getting between those months? indies, i mean i dont have anything against indies games but the AAA titles need to be consistently released.
In my opinion psvita really needs a very good E3, E3 will decide my faith in the system and they need to fix the message, friends apps, they need to load a lot faster, how about online multiplayer in game vita UI?
ps to my last comment.. you know how video killed the radio star..well tablets killed the vita..way way better and more to do and at almost the same price..so pull your rip cord on your and bail
I see what you mean by your opinion. "Better", I guess so, since it can do a lot of things, but y'see the PlayStation Vita is a gaming handheld. It's like saying that a tablet is better than a Nintendo 3DS. Of course it is better, but the 3DS and/or Vita are capable of some great gaming experiences while the tablet, to my knowledge, aren't.
I see why people compare the Vita with tablets: because the Vita tries to implement tablet/mobile-like features like Facebook or Twitter. I think those other apps are just there for the sake of, well, just being there-- meaning, that they are not the Vita's primary function. It's primary function is gaming.
