Okay I don't know how many people check up on the PSVita section of the forums but if so I would like to know some answers or thoughts on a few questions.
I kind of feel like the ads for the Vita are kind of lacking something, or a lot. Not a lot of people I know are aware of all of the cool things that the Vita has to offer. Essentially with the PS3 and the Vita combined you get everything a WiiU could do but more, a ton more. There have been a few cool ads for Playstation but not a lot really catch attention or inform people well of what Playstation could do anymore. Isn't Kevin Butler gone too?
Why are they so expensive? Originally I was going to ask why do the Vitas not come with one but they do now if you buy things such as the Assassins Creed pack. I wish I could have bought that but I bought the original Vita and now it just sits there as dead weight, that's my fault. But I imagined that the cards would be half the price of what they are and a 64GB being around $100 ( I know that there is no 64GB). I feel like if you lowered the price on memory cards more people would buy more off the Playstation Store.

sony sucks at PR. it's just my opinion, but it's a popular one that many agree with. they don't know how to sell the vita, or they oversell plenty of features that they never deliver on. i'd just as soon no advertising to "false" / exaggerated advertising.
memory cards are overpriced because the system, for it's specs and build, is underpriced.

I think advertising is something that Sony needs to work on a little better to pull sales. Kevin Butler was a great character but I'm not sure if he still works for them after the lawsuit.
I dunno, look at some phone commercials. Showing off some features while keeping your attention with action or humor.
I mean this ad is cool, but it did not do a good job keeping my attention.
This one was not so bad but the narrator was a bit boring. Something was a little off, also I've never seen this play on TV.
Ads like this are awesome. I love the liveaction commercials based off games like the Michael commercial ( The latest Playstation All-Stars commercial was cool too but I don't know it's just missing something to me, I might just be crazy) do catch the eye. It's great to get the name Playstation out there. So maybe a mix of awesome ads and then informative but interesting ads?
Also, does anyone know how much it costs to make a memory card?
