Quenchables: Pachter Says Vita Is “Too Expensive”, 3DS XL “Not Compelling”

“The larger 3DS format is not all that compelling for the consumer, and although I think the XL will help sales, I don’t think that the impact will revive weak sales of handhelds overall.

Vita’s too expensive for most, priced pretty much the same as the PS3 everywhere. While I think the Vita is a good value and a great device, when compared to the PS3 it’s pretty expensive.

Also, there is not much of a library of Vita games, so sales will probably be slow until we see more content.” – Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst Michael Pachter speaking to VG247.

    for once hes not talking shit, im shocked!
    thats not the vitas biggest problem though, its biggest problem is all the nuisances you have to put up with!
    the 1 PSN account per system, the constant intrusive updates, the lack of titles, the poor battery life, ect, ect.
    people dont mind paying allot of money for things as long as they feel its perfect.
    if your paying the same amount for a handheld you are a console you would expect it to be flawless, and thats the biggest problem for the vita.
    its FAR from flawless!
