It probably doesn't because it's main focus is playing games, your iphone can't play uncharted, wipeout, dynasty warriors, gravity daze, Call of Duty, and numerous other titles like that (unless you're using onlive). At the end of the day, dedicated handhelds are going to be the best place to game because that's their core function, the applications being offered such as skype for calling, twitter, the internet browser, near, the camera, and whatever else sony puts on the psn for the vita, are just subsidiaries being offered to the consumer.

These companies come out with these things and set outrageous expectations and then act like they're hurting when something doesn't sell the way they expected it to. This is just Forbes anyway though, that douchebag inherited billions of dollars from his dad and then anointed himself worthy of being a presidential candidate and worthy of telling everybody who's successful and who isn't.

Like I stated previously, we are in the age of convergence where one device can take the place of many and often for a cheaper price. Devices like the 3DS and the PSP that are only able to do 1 thing well are not going to be able to survive in this climate unless there is something about it that differentiates itself to the point that consumers see value in it against a phone/tablet. Why do you think Nintendo went with 3D for this iteration of the 3DS? They wanted to differentiate their product in a way that the convergence products (Smartphones and Tablets) couldn't. Games like Infinity Blade 2 and Dead Space show that Smartphones and Tablets are capable of high quality gaming and for much cheaper (both are 7 bucks). Yes, do I think the Vita offer some high-quality games? Yes! But I can play Dead Space on my iPad, swipe to the left and start working on a spreadsheet in iWork, swipe to the left again and edit a movie in iMovie, and then surf the internet...that's value and that's why traditional handhelds will slowly fade away.

And the vita should sell much better in America than Japan

$50 for handheld game is silly, even if it is for a flagship game. And the other sh*t it does....facebook, twitter, web....is already better served up on a smartphone.

This thing sounded good on paper and was a first day cop for me. But after reading all this stuff, I'm gonna wait until Holiday 2012 to see if there's a price drop or sumthin

Its like when people say Jay-z won when Nas takes an L or visa versa.
It may not have anything to do with nas or jay but people count it as a win for the other.
So because Sony is taking an L, Microsoft got a win.

That's the problem with Sony, they always release the best gaming systems (ps1, ps2, ps3, etc), but always overprice them at first..it might be the fact that their parts are more expensive seeing as they don't use cheap parts like Microsoft which I guess protects its costumers from an embarrassing failure rate of 79%, but they still need to lower the initial price a bit

Sony needs to really rethink the pricing of at least the games and accessories before the US Launch

PS3 is not better than the 360 especially with that awful sixaxis controller.

It was Sixaxis first. Sony's arrogant a.ss claimed that rumbling was so "last gen". After they realized their stupidity, they put it back in and called it the DualShock 3

They did that because they were in a lawsuit with some company so they couldn't put rumble, that was an idiotic decision.

i got a few mates who imported the vita from japan. Looks like major firmware needed for it. Games freeze up when you play them. Hopefully sony can fix these probs. 3G is locked to a single carrier. The WIFI model is the one that is selling well. As just about everyone is returning the 3G model because of the single carrier issue.
