The PlayStation Vita deserves to be more popular than it is. Unfortunately, the sales continue to be very low.
That doesn't mean Sony is giving up, though. During a recent DigitalSpy interview with SCE UK Managing Director Fergal Gara, the company admits that sales thus far aren't quite where they want them to be, but-
"It’s important on both levels. It’s not the biggest seller we’ve ever had, but it is still a very much loved and much respected machine."
Gara added that it's "now far more keenly priced" and it's also "becoming more of a digital machine in terms of more and rich digital content." Of course, it also makes for a great companion to the newly released PlayStation 4, as Sony mentioned in a recent trailer . But in the end, Gara admitted that it doesn't matter how Sony views the device; all that matters is what gamers think of it:
"We believe that feature is very compelling; it doesn’t matter what we think, it matters what gamers think, and as of tonight they get a chance to try it and give us their feedback, and we’re hopeful that feedback will be good and therefore it has a dual life from here on in, both as a standalone, very effective gaming machine and as a brilliant companion to PS4."
Well, what do you think? The general consensus is that Sony simply needs to produce more games – specifically, more exclusive games – for the handheld. That would help a lot .
