It’s a fair critique. It’s not a journalist’s job to consider whether critical coverage will impact the sales of a system, creating some self-fulfilling prophecy. It’s our job to fairly report and analyze facts.

The Vita is not selling well enough, not by any stretch of the imagination. It needs to be saved for Sony to justify the investment in the product. PlayStation UK managing director Fergal Gara has spoken publicly about the system’s problematic sales.

From Fergal’s interview with Play: ""Being open and honest, I think we would have hoped for higher sales."

Here’s more from that interview: "The PSP and Vita landed into considerably different worlds. As far as the Vita is concerned, the advent of handheld gaming on phone and tablets complicated the marketplace. While we believe that the Vita is a specialist device that does the job better than other alternatives, people can only carry so many devices – and the people that want the very specialist experience is not as large as the pool of people that just want any gaming experience available to them on the go. Having said that, of course the PSP is a reference point. The Vita doesn’t look likely to achieve the same sales levels as the PSP, but the encouraging thing is that Vita sales are not declining and its new role with the PS4 has only just begun.”

Yeah, I love my OLED screen. I hope this isn’t the last chance to own a Vita with a nice screen.

A well thought out argument.

So Sony is above critique? I’m not sure what this logic accomplishes.

Ultimately, we just didn’t like arguing with each other. Conflict made for good listening, but it dampened our spirits.

Also, it’s extremely insulting to call someone a non-Christian before you actually know their religious beliefs. Watch the video. I’m a Catholic.

I hope being able to quote catechism meets the definition of Christian.
