PlayStation Vita is “too expensive” for most consumers, according to Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter.
Mr Pachter also believes that Vita’s software lineup is in need of big titles, and that a sales increase for the hardware won’t happen until good games come to the platform.
“Vita’s too expensive for most, priced pretty much the same as the PS3 everywhere,” he said. “While I think the Vita is a good value and a great device, when compared to the PS3 it’s pretty expensive.”
He was also critical of Nintendo’s new 3DS XL, saying the new hardware iteration wasn’t enough to increase “weak” 3DS global sales.
