PSXE Poll Update: Vita Isn't Bad Off, It Just Needs More Games
While many are concerned about the future of Sony's portable, most gamers say the same thing: There's nothing wrong with the device; it just requires more software.
The results of our latest poll are clear: If the PlayStation Vita could get some system-selling games on store shelves, everything would be fine. This makes sense; lack of compelling software has been the most commonly heard complaint, second only to the price tag.
As a frame of reference, we've only done a small handful of Vita previews in the past six months and that isn't because we've gotten lazy. It's because there really isn't much on the horizon, unfortunately. The first and second quarters of 2013 are almost entirely devoid of new Vita games, so it's no surprise the handheld is under-performing at retail. Here's hoping a solid surge of software shows up later this year, which will appeal to a wide audience. I'm not necessarily holding my breath, though.
This week could be gigantic- Will Sony announce the PlayStation 4? And if so, what does the competition think? Microsoft has said they're not sweating the February 20 press event because not enough gamers will even notice and besides, the Xbox still dominates in the US. Still, do you believe a PS4 announcement could make Microsoft sweat a little...?
