PSXE Poll Update: Vita's Price Remains A Stumbling Block
The PlayStation Vita is quite the slick little unit, and it really caters to hardcore gamers (which we love).
However, many claim the device is just too expensive right now. Although nearly as many said they just aren't into portable/handheld entertainment in our latest poll, the majority said the biggest issue they face is the cost.
So why don't they have the Vita? It's not necessarily the lack of games, and it's not because they think the competition has the edge. Basically, it's just a matter of how hard a Vita purchase would hit their wallets, which is understandable. Currently, the 3G model retails for $299.99 and the Wi-Fi-only goes for $249.99. Some analysts expect a price cut before 2012 is out, but if sales aren't great, it might happen sooner; Nintendo made the move early with the 3DS.
This week, we want to know what you think about God of War: Ascension. We don't have a ton of info just yet, but you've got the baseline details (such as the fact that it's a prequel) and very soon, we should have a lot more in the way of specific information and even gameplay. So maybe you want to wait a few hours before casting your vote...
