Analyst: PS Vita must cut its price in order to succeed

Dec 03 // Jim Sterling
Trouble with Sony is, it's an arrogant company. As we saw years ago with the PS3's original price, the PlayStation owner believes it has the same zealous and loyal fans as Apple, and can get away with charging customers anything. Sure, Sony has some customers who will literally spend whatever they're told to spend, but nowhere near the number required to get away with charging obscene prices for proprietary nonsense.  Nintendo fell on its sword and reduced the 3DS' price when the 3DS was in a better position than the Vita currently is. It might not be "fair" that Apple can get away with gouging its customers and Sony can't, but them's the breaks. Offering free games along with a memory card that's too small to fit the games on is not going to tantalize the public.
