Great games, that's all.
Ps1 won the genneration because ff7 (and 8, 9), Ps2 kicked xbox & GC's assess because FF10, GOW, KH...
So, all Psv needs now is a killer game, like MH4, but unfortunately, that treasure goes to Nin's 3ds with one more needed fking analog if you want to play it properly.
So, just wait a little longer.
How About Everquest "?" online MORPG. Not MMOROG. This game would require an online connection at all times. This would work better on PS3 i know but... Its a single player game that only lets you connect to others while in certain villages or towns. We could join in groups of 4-8 for outside of the outposts. It may be possable, that in game these cannot be visited without a preinternet connection before entering the area. Otherwise its just NPC(non-player characters). Being able to turn a single player game into a multi co-op game without adding or changing much should make for a good console title, even for a portable. I would like to see atleast someone push requirements on a console. Hell make a game that is Keyboard and mouse only on PS3. Sure it wont sell the best, but it would be a new type of gaming for a console. How about requiring 17Gb of HDD space for a MMO that is for the 17+ audience.
Sums it up.
Yeah that's probably the biggest reason. I wonder what Sony could even do to change this perception though? They are obviously funding some developers that want their game on Vita, but the biggest challenge would be to shift the gamer's perception that Vita is going to fail. Their biggest mistake may have been in pretending the Vita didn't exist at this year's E3.
Maybe Sony needs to take a more down to earth advertising approach? Market the Vita as what it is, a fantastic gaming device, that just isn't being recognized yet. "Buy a Vita now, and then you can say you liked it before it was cool." Poke a little bit of fun at it, as scary as that sounds. Or maybe take a shot at mobile gaming: "Getting bored of dollar-store mobile games? Maybe it's time to go boutique."
They could give away some cool perks to early adopters like early access to betas/demos of high profile games or major update releases. Make other gamers envious of the special treatment we receive.
I dunno, I really hope the Vita succeeds, but so far Sony hasn't really been making the right decisions.
Only three things the Vita needs. It will happen just not anytime soon.
The Vita already has a great back catalog of growing PS1/PSP/PSPMini games coming out weekly, apps are not as quick to be brought, but lets just remember that most if not all of us spent $250 - $300 plus tax to play high quality or old games on it, so apps alone don't take that much of a priority here.
Not when smart phones are the leading app successor.
New Vita games: Now this is what got on our nerves from the beginning. Most of what's released is not what meets our demands weather its minor or absurd. Developers are already focusing on the constant success of the iOS Store or Google play, due to the intense investment returns on $.99 applications or games for the casual crowd, claiming that the handheld market can't get any greater then this, putting aside the hardcore(Sony/Vita) or casual mainstream(Nintendo/3DS) for what its worth in the end. We all know that the slow demise of the handheld gaming market is coming to an end due to the success of Smartphone gaming. (Or Atlest that's what I keep thinking)
Moving back on topic, new Vita games are far and few up until the holidays, if ya'll have noticed, there is an increased amount of releases this month in October. Weather it be good or bad releases, we can say the problem of new titles coming out slowly is being acknowledged. So its not much to worry about now.
Playstation Mobile is also being inputed into the Store for people to spend less but a few bucks for something minor but functional experiences for the public. Now most of you have been thinking Gameloft or other popular mobile gaming companies can take advantage of this new catagory of input to make small games like N.O.V.A 3 or Modern Combat 4(Coming Soon). But lets not hold our breath for too long.
Playstation Mobile is and will always be the new PS Mini market of the future. How mini these games will be is not something I know.
I had a better sig, but a tree huggin, carebear, changed it! (I got censored)
