This thread is an odd one and was only created in mind to have a debate between Ninty fans and Sony. Whenever one creates a thread, one has to support his or her arguments with facts and sources - none are provided. Furthermore, all the facts brought forth are false.
The truth is as follows:
1. Sony did get a temporary price cut, in Europe - http://n4g.com/news/1111124/playstation-vita-gets-a-significant-price-drop-after-all
2. Sony cannot bring down the price further down due to it not having enough cash to offset the losses. It has more debt than available liquidity - http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/11/22/us-sony-panasonic-ratings-idUSBRE8AL07B20121122
3. The Vita's future is grim as third parties are not flocking to the console. They are going to the 3DS due to the large userbase and lower software costs - http://www.gamesradar.com/sony-surprised-lack-3rd-party-vita-support-and-says-price-drop-will-have-wait-until-next-year/
Hence, although the Vita's hardware capabilities are impressive, this feat of 'surviving' is nothing impressive. Sony is surely disappointed regardless if they say it is selling admirably.
