Weekend Wondering: Which Should Come First for Vita, a Price Cut or More Games?

I tend to give PS Vita a rough time, but I really do think it’s an attractive machine with a lot of potential. It’s just… at present, the combination of its steep price and lack of must-have titles makes for a pretty unattractive value proposition. Hardware alone doesn’t sell a game platform. It needs to be more than just a machine.

So far Vita hasn’t sold all that well, and I’m curious to see what it’d take for that to change. I’ve advocated for a long time that it’s the games that will determine Vita’s fate, but I’m starting to think the games need to come alongside a price drop to really be effective.

What do you think would be most helpful right now? More games, or a price cut? Share your thoughts in this week’s Weekend Wondering poll?

    Definitely needs both, but I think a price cut will help it out the most right now. There’s already a few decently attractive games, and there’s definitely interest in the system, but people are balking at the price tag. Games like Assassin’s Creed Liberation, Little Big Planet, and Uncharted might not be enough to make someone shell at $250, but at $200 there’s a better chance.
