Why in your opinion did the Vita flop?

I was thinking about this earlier today and then I saw EC had uploaded this video. (And yes, I know "flop" is putting it lightly).



Aside from those reasons, I really do believe the memory card prices played a hand in this as well.

Too powerful for its own good, expensive memory cards, no clear target demographic.

imo, It tried too hard to be a PS3 in portable form, rather than it's own thing. The memory cards are too darn expensive. And probably some more things I'm forgetting

Well, the no games thing is clear as day, but I wonder why Sony didn't lay on the first party support.

Or I guess that's the unfortunate cycle.

I got mine the first year, and while I still love it as a device, I gave it the benefit of the doubt game-wise. But now it's past benefit of the doubt.

Well that's the risk of making an expensive console without any games

I never felt compelled to buy one and didn't know really of any games worth playing.
