Sony finally makes an awesome handheld, in terms of the hardware, and they can't give it away. I mean, it is the best gaming solution for people who want to game on the move in nearly every technical way but because everyone already owns a tablet or a smartphone they don't want to carry another device.

You need to stop right here. Smartphones & tablets have rendered high-end portables obsolete.

A strong software library would help, but the Vita was DOA because the market has changed.

People's playing habits aren't conductive to spending 40 bucks on a portable game that they'll play for 5 minutes twice a week while in line for lunch.

Let's put it this way. I already have an iPhone. I have two options for portable gaming. Buy Angry Birds for 99 cents (or something else for 2-3 bucks), or spend 250-300 dollars on a vita and *one* game.

There's absolutely no contest. Crappy software libraries are the nail in the coffin.

What's weird is that this is the *exact* same thing that happened with the PSP. I bought one cheap years ago, bought like 8 games, and of those, I played... pinball. Like 99% of the gametime on that stupid handheld was pinball.

I'm more and more convinced Sony has no idea what it's doing anymore.
