Yes, the system is expensive and it could be cheaper. Yes the memory card situation is absolutely appalling. I just want to make it clear that I couldn't agree more with those points. I also want to note that my statements are not defending Sony as a company, but rather defending the Vita as a console in general. This is also coming from someone who only paid $140 to get the Vita and an 8gb memory card, so my defending statements have nothing to do with price...because I can't relate to that. Personally, I find the Vita's software to be better then what most people give it credit for, and I'll leave my defending statements at that. I realize that no matter what I say, I can't win. This is a Nintendo focused site, not a general gaming or Sony focused one.

The price is a bit high including memory cards, but Sony doesn't need to slash the system's price, they just need to bundle things with the system. The big issue seems to be software, but how can they fix that? What kind of games does Vita need that it's not getting? Is it that there are so many ports or near-ports? Could it be that development of triple-A games for the system is so costly that it's hard to justify making unique titles, and smaller downloadable games aren't a big draw on a hardcore-focused system?

Jerome wrote:That makes sense, though it's having a harder time than PSP did, so there must be more factors at work, or at least the same factors functioning to a greater extent.

Wow. Sure you weren't overacting there a bit? I bought one last year as well, and got a 1GB memory card for a few bucks online.
