Many don't think the PlayStation Vita will make it. A perceived lack of third-party support and a high cost of admission are the biggest hurdles.
And while a fair percentage of readers at PSXE really do believe Sony's handheld is dead in the water, the majority think it has a chance. Sony has said many times in the past – for all their hardware – that it's always a "marathon, not a sprint." And after all, if they just start coming with the software later this year and into 2014, everything could come out just fine. Remember, the PSP didn't really start to surge until it was a few years into its lifespan.
The only problem is that we're not seeing much in the way of support, and the release calendar for the Vita is looking awfully thin. Perhaps what it needs now above all else is a price cut, especially so it'll look more attractive when the PlayStation 4 launches. That Remote Play feature sounds cool, but it's not exactly a system-saver. This week, we're pretty sure Sony will give us the release date for the PS4, and many are expecting them to show off more PS4 games, too. Will some of those be launch titles? And if so, how significant will they be…?
