    At this rhythm the Vita will sell in one month the amount of units the 3DS sells in one week, thats too much even the psp is selling double digits, i think the biggest enemy of the vita is the psp itself, at least in japan.

    I think the memory cards need a big price drop as well as the vita, that and some big games (killer apps), i think the memory card issue is hurting the vita more than sony is realizing or will admit, is the ps3 situation all over again.

    As for the games issue, i think sony needs to make games that are not found in any other console that are based on the strenght of the vita, and they are only found just only on the vita, it doesnt matter if they are killer apps for the other consoles available on vita, just vita only killer apps.

    #1 Sony placed a 6-page ad on famitsu for a Demon’s souls/Monster Hunter-esque game. That about it. Probably won’t be anything new until E3.

    Still waiting on Eastern centric titles to start hitting the market for PSP. Tales will hit soon, Monster Hunter towards the end of the year.

    It may have been a good launch line up for the west, but it was terrible for the east and there’s a dearth of killer content on the horizon. New games need to be announced and soon.
    I almost expect E3 to have some sort of killer Vita announcement.

    “At this rhythm the Vita will sell in one month the amount of units the 3DS sells in one week”

    Your math is a little off. It would take about two months to match what the 3DS sells in a week as it stands… and it gets worse because the 3DS is going to have a big week next week (Fire Emblem / New bundle).

    #5 yes you are right, thats a more accurate calculation, and a more worrying one.
