Playstation Vita users seem to be mostly satisfied with their devices, but the problem is there are not as many users as Sony had hoped for, which could result in a price cut as the only thing to save the system.
According to a report from Now Gamer yesterday, Inside Network's senior industry analyst Billy Pidgeon talked about how even with the high quality system, it still needs a price drop to succeed.
"Although the hardware is high quality, Sony may need to follow Nintendo's lead and cut price drastically next year if the installed base remains below five million or the platform will not be viable for publishers.
"Also the proprietary memory cards for PS Vita are prohibitively expensive. There should be more downloadable software, including inexpensive or free games, and these must be higher quality than popular iOS and Android games.
"It would in fact be helpful if the best and most popular smartphone and tablet games were also available for download to PS Vita," Pidgeon said.
Pidgeon did say there is great content for the system, but price is what seems to be standing in the platform's way.
"PS Vita sales are improving, but could be much stronger.
"The software library is improving – there are some very good triple A third party exclusives like 'Persona 4 Golden' and 'Assassin's Creed III: Liberation,' and there are some very good downloadable titles like Sound Shapes and Escape Plan – extending PlayStation Plus subscriptions to PS Vita also helps to add value," Pidgeon said.
