    Vita is not looking good. I’ll be getting it in a few months, perhaps around E3. I hope it’ll well in future.

      @RyoonZ: Vita will be fine.

      It’s a new piece of hardware and its the most expensive of its competitors. No matter how good the tech is, it just won’t sell as much at a such a high price and the few retail games available at this point. Sadly, its following in the footsteps of the PS3 launch almost exactly.

      But the same thing happened to the 3DS and people were spouting doom for Nintendo but look at it now.

      Give it time. Once it drops in price and gets a few more titles, it’ll probably start flying off the shelf.

      • Kobracon

        @RedWolfe: Yeah. And just like the PSP before it, I’ll prolly wait a few years to get it.
