    Honestly, at this point there’s no more room for nails in the coffin. The coffin is so full of nails that it’s more metal than wood. In fact, the coffin is so far gone that they ran out of iron to make nails out of for the vita and started using wooden stakes.

      Just poor timing and marketing. Par for the course with Sony decisions. They could have waited a bit and released a Vita at the same time as the PS4, then more strongly marketed the integration of the two. Maybe taken the time to reduce the form factor a bit. They would have delayed the release by a bit, but still ended up ahead of the game if releasing it by now.

        it would still failed, even if it was launched before 3ds or with the ps4, you just cannot advertised a device as a multimedia storage that you can play games without storage and again the failure of the vita is called overpriced *** memory cards (they are even slower than the current cheapo sd).

    Devices that started out as touch-based were doomed when forced into an entertainment center. Look at the Ouya/MOJO. There’s little reason to use it when you can do more on a device you can slip in your pocket and take anywhere.

    Console gaming will always be around, but what you’re seeing is where society is headed. The first company that comes out with a device that merges the two.. on-the-go with entertainment center integration.. goldmine. Wonder if that’s where Nintendo is headed with their next console.. hmm.. 🙂

    what about more eml generator services. lol
    and a standalone .exe webkit for 3.20 preferred latest working branch.
    can rejuvenale be launched via eml trick or webkit ?

    I don’t understand why $ony is even bothering with FW updates at this point. Eventually they’re going to have to let go of the device completely.

    You still can’t even use the PS4 to backup/restore or transfer content. The Vita does have some pluses, though.

    Proprietary memory cards, proprietary charging cable (fat), more expensive games on psn. We spent good money on this, why do they need to keep killing support. Sony is making money all over (not quite here), if the vita does bad then at least support it to the end of a console life cycle.

    Sony should just unhack Vita and give everyone the freedom to do whatever they want with the device. The modding community will do a better job in keeping Vita alive, compared to Sony idiots. Imagine the possibilities.

    Pro X And Motion V2 may additionally embrace a serial number,
