    I'm just loving the whole idea that Sony's big misstep with the Vita strategy was that they didn't make it expensive enough.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    It's friday. Friday is a day that has been set aside since time immemorial to ponder at the workings of a spastic's mind.

    A strategy that worked so well for the PS3.

    To be fair, they did. And the subsequent sales for the following 3 gameless years.

    * not really
    To be honest, with the general feeling from the forum and the fact that you cant actually buy vita games in shops, I would say downloadable sales are vastly ahead of physical sales to the point that storage matters to the point that you cant imagine why the machine didnt come with 16gb of internal storage in the first place and *then* have expansion cards on it.

    But how would any of these other people know that? They'd have to go through the process of purchasing and using one to understand the importance of storage in the value proposition.

    Most of the last page of comments is from people that haven't owned a sony product for 5years. Or in dirtbox's case, his “life blood” is to roam the EG forum boards and argue (troll) people. He is a professional forumite.

    To be fair Viz, I own at least one of every Sony console made available over here and I think you're mental.

    You don't have to own a Vita to see that if they aren't selling at £220, you don't solve this by selling them at £300.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    But nearly all of you PC/PC console enthusiasts with connections to EG staff(like yourself) spend the bulk of your time trolling Playstation threads in the forum.

    Why would anyone outside of EG give a second thought to any of the things you think?

    @LeoliansBro

    I'm still talking about a suggested alternative LAUNCH strategy. Not increase sales now strategy.

    Hey, I like the PlayStation brand (why would I have bought them otherwise?) - I just think you're absolutely barking.

    no, read the sentence again.

    @MrTomFTW

    That is a fantastic question. It never comes across that you like anything Playstation.

    Are you actually Mr Tom (Thomas Morgan) freelance DF contributor? As I'm sure all DF authors require all the kit whether they like the consoles or not.

    Yeah, Tom. The only reason you own Sony goods and dislike them is because you were forced to do so for this job that you don't actually hold.

    @vizzini Nope, that's not me. I'm not paid by EG for anything :( I actually paid my own money for a Vita a few months after launch.

    In retrospect, maybe it's me that should be labelled as "mental".

    "Privately, Sony representatives have conceded that the company made a mistake in creating such esoteric architecture for PS3..."
    If they can do it, why can't you?

    It'll be new, shiny and have a bit more power for graphics and sound.

    Now to the important questions. What will it be called, what will it look like and what colours will be available?

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Please don't be glossy.

    Try not to design the base first then plonk a console on top.

    Black or Silver/Grey.

    And it should fit in an AV cabinet.

    It's Sony! It'll look like Brutalist architecture. And cost a ton, it seems, because that pad sounds like £50 to me alone, and GDDR5 is hella expensive. £500 at launch seems sensible Sony pricing.
