Dedicated portable game consoles are floundering even in Japan.
I believe you're mistaken. The 3DS is selling extremely well over in Japan. It's the Vita that's struggling in Japan, and then both are struggling in the west.

Yeah, the Japanese LOVE handheld gaming. The Vita is in trouble there and here because it has, what? 20 games? That's 6 months after launch. Almost half of the launch games slipped their release date, and of those another half just disappeared, apparently no longer in development. That awesome feature where I can play the game on my PS3 or Vita, and switch on and off? Yeah, no games let you do that yet. Controlling my PS3 from the Vita? Yeah, almost nothing works.

Don't get me wrong, I loved Uncharted on the Vita, I like Gravity Rush a lot, and I'm sure I will like the Assassin's Creed game, but that's 3 games on a $250 system. Most people will not shell out for a system like that with very few good games.

Exactly right. I love the Vita...still haven't bought one yet though. I can't justify that kind of money for such a limited library when it comes to new titles. Even if they made all the PSOne and PS2 titles downloadable and functioning on the Vita....so what? I don't want it to retro game. All that new tech so I can Pac-Man Championship Edition? lol. I have heard Uncharted on Vita is a spectacular game though...portable or otherwise.
