I honestly have a hard time fathoming how some can be so oblivious to the financial situation that Sony finds itself in today. Sony knows their new handheld is flagging, and they know a real price cut would increase sales. The reason it hasn't happened, and isn't likely to happen is simple. Sony doesn't have the money to loss lead yet another device. It really isn't rocket science. Sony doesn't have the coffers it once had, and to be blunt aggressive price cutting is part of what has emptied them out.
When Sony is offering up nearly two billion in bonds. That if they don't meet the criteria of being junk are damned near to being just that. Then you shouldn't waste even a idle thought on the idea of Sony cutting the price on a product that actually makes them money. Seriously guys Sony is on the cliffs edge, and screaming for them to jump sounds almost malicious. Worse yet implying that a price cut is going to come is only going to encourage fewer people to buy the product.
You aren't doing Sony any favors.
Why should we be doing Sony any favors? I don't want the Vita to fail or anything, but it's Sony's job to make the Vita a success, not ours. Right now, Sony hasn't created a product or a software library that warrants a 250+ price tag, and accordingly we ask them to lower the price to reflect the value of the device. Sony's not helping me out with my personal problems, so i don't think I'm going to help them with theirs.
