PSXE Poll Update: Vita's Price Needs To Drop Immediately
While the PlayStation Vita is a well-received piece of hardware and makes prominent strides in the world of portable gaming, the price remains a major stumbling block for many.
As evidenced by our latest poll, the majority of gamers out there believe Sony needs to drop the price of their new handheld. This would follow in the footsteps of Nintendo, which launched their new 3DS portable unit last year and after disappointing sales quickly proceeded to slash the retail cost. Some say the Vita is properly priced for what it delivers (a sentiment with which we don't necessarily disagree), and Sony has stated that Vita sales are essentially on track with company expectations.
Still, most are calling for a lower price tag, which would likely spur sales. Might we see it some time this year...? Well, while you wait, we suggest you kick back and read through the next batch of qualified user reviews that have come our way. It's the second round of our So You Think You Can Review Video Games user review contest, and we have selected the ten best. Now it's your turn to pick the winner, which will see his/her review up in lights here at PSXE as an official guest review.
As a reminder, here are the available prizes that are up for grabs. Whoever earns the most votes will get a little sumthin... And remember, keep submitting because there's always a chance yours will be selected, and if you win multiple times, there could be a much larger prize waiting for you at the end of the year.
