    It's ok, Vita has dual analogue sticks so this will save them.

    Its very hard to say what the PS3 is or is not contributing these days. Its likley most of the loss was attributed to LCD diviison I guess.

    The downgrade in forcasted sales is interesting though.

    So I guess 360 didnt outsell PS3 by much if MS sold 14.9 million for 2011 and PS3 sold 14.1. I kind of expected a wider gap with the momentum of Kinect especially in the US.

    It's about the same lead they held at the beginning of the year. Given Sony have Japan in their back pocket, and a price cut during the year, they fought well to keep the gap from widening any more. But they are very much fighting these days, no longer calling the shots in the industry. That's healthy though. Competition is always healthy.

    Yeah, I like competition. As a consumer I dont want to see any one company dominate the industry and monopolize it.

    Congrats on your purchase. I actually just traded mine in towards the Vita. Got the extra credit deal at Gamestop.

    I think Stringer said that the LCD business is the only one that's not profitable in that interview that was posted here a few weeks ago.

    Well the fiscals tell us it's not just LCD. It appears mobile is also struggling. Pictures barley made a profit, and professional devices made loss's.

    no idea what professional devices do. Didn't read that deeply into it.

    No, didnt you hear? It's going to crash and burn (along with the rest of Sony)

    Yeah. It will definitely take time though, so I wish Kaz all the best. It should be good (for us gamers) to have a PlayStation man at the helm

    Well those losses could effect everything that Sony does. This could very well put the ps4 on hold and may see some first party studio projects get cancelled or studios closing. Sony can't afford to let the Vita fail like there previous handheld devices it could very well be there last.

    The professional division consists of studio devices for video and audio recording playback

    I'm betting the Vita is also Sony's last handheld. It's also a bit harsh to say the PSP 'failed'

    PSP has 61.3 million units sold. How is that a failure? http://andriasang.com/comzuc/hirai_games_number_one/

    I was wondering the same thing. If anything PSP was a HUGE success, given how settled Nintendo is in the handheld market and how much the PSP managed to achieve. Vita will only surpass PSP. It seems logical.

    Yeah ,pretty much only the GO failed right?

    PSP started out slow, but has been a great seller.

    I actually regret not buying a PSP ever. I wish I'd given it time. There are some great games I missed out on. Does the Vita play PSP games?

    I have a PSP-3000. Don't use it, but it sure is feature rich and has some sharp looking games. I love the built in remote PS3 access too.

    Will Vita = PSP Go?

    Great sales for the PS3, no doubt. Hopefully 2012 is just as good for the PS3.

    i think they'd sell even more if they didn't improve it every month. i got my 2000 right before the 3000 cam out then everything else. i don't see the point of getting those again


    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    I seriously doubt it. Being DD only is what mainly killed the Go. And GO really didnt add any new features over the PSP.
