    Exclamation The BIG VITA FAILURE.

    "So a lot of Sony fans have constantly thought that the launch of the PS4 alone can save the Vita. A lot of them thought that the gimmick remote play functionality can pull the Vita out of the dead.

    Well, according to VGchartz, during the week when the PS4 launched in the US, the Vita only sold 14,000 units in the US, which is overly pathetic by any level. Sony's last "attempt" to save the Vita FAILED. Why, you might ask? Because making an expensive handheld into an overpriced accessory never helps. Sony fans have constantly hid in denial in the past few months. "The PS4 will help! The PS4 will help! It will! It will!!!" Well, look at the outcome of that genius marketing strategy, eh?

    Meanwhile in Japan, the release of God Eater 2 caused the Vita to boost to 90,000 units. So Japan PROOVES that the big issue with Vita sales is the lack of good exclusives. But Sony is just so stubborn, they refuse to acknowledge the real issue. The Vita's fate will be caused by Sony's ignorance. Embarassing for Sony and their fans."

    So hey, this is posted directly from IGN, but sadly, it was taken down just moments ago. I was quite curious as to what would happen to the PS4 and Vita combination, so here is your cup o' coffee (or not).

    Lol, it's posted all over the internet, but most articles have been taken down due to fanboyism and stuff.

    Vita shined when it was released in 2011, remote play function on ps3 and online access (wifi), but the price of $250 plus the cost of a memory unit and games they shouldve sold it for $199 with a free game and memory unit and also a case, so really its ok!

    The price is what's killing it. I might buy it if it was 100-150. I know it may cost a lot to make but Along with no good solo games it doesn't back up the price. A lot of vita games are watered down versions of the console version. Nintendo has Pokemon which keeps fans buying the new game boy alternative every time a new one comes out. Sony is piggybacking the Vita off of playstation 3 & 4.

    I'd get one for ps4 if it was $100 or less. Price seems to be the issue for me at least.

    They should do what Nintendo did and price drop it cause 3DS is killing it Japan. Last I heard worldwide around 30M units.

    Yeah but to be honest those people will ONLY use the vita for remote play a couple of times and that's all. They need to make the Vita stand on it's own feet cause it can be a great gaming device.

    Thing is, psp only competed because of monster hunter in Japan. Now 3ds is the system with monster hunter.
