Forums - Sales Discussion - PSV and PSP still have Nightmare sales in America almost one year later- Now what?

With several big exclusives, along with being the slickest handheld on the market, the Vita along with the PSP still ( a year later) are not able to even put up a fight to the dying DS.

 

People said, " Marketing!, Price Cut, Bundle, Exclusives, etc." Ok. Done! That still did not seem to matter. So now what is Sony's next step? If they can afford to do anymore steps that is.

 

I am Worried.



 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

Create a new IP that everyone will swarm over like Pokemon. Enough with the embarrassing ports and half-baked games.

 Nintendopie  Was obviously right and I was obviously wrong. I will forever be a lesser being than them. (6/16/13)

I honestly don't seeing it recovering unless there's some kind of miracle app. This thing needs the next gigantic hit.

It will have a rough year that's for sure, the price cut is Sony's best option atm. 2 Vita doom threads.

Just because I am a Nintendo gamer does not mean I do not like the PSvIta. I sold my 3DS. I am unbiased.

Try Call of Duty again, but make it halfway decent this time. Possibly moneyhat Rockstar into doing something. That might help a little.

If neither of those work, I got nothing. Pray for Capcom to bless Vita with Monster Hunter and except Japan to save the day.

Problem with that is Sony does not have exclusive Monster hunter. They still need to compete with 3DS having it now. DS was never so lucky. PSP was.

This whole situation can basically be blamed on one company: Capcom
