the point is to give them almost nothing in hopes they'll buy a bigger one anyway.
Dear Sony, Vita is dying, and you need to fight to stop that. Doing nothing, will do nothing. It doesn't deserve to be in this position, it's clearly superior hardware
Vita has that activity feed in the live area that Nintendo completely ripped off for their miiverse. The only additions Nintendo made is the ability to attach a screenshot, or a hand-drawn picture. You can do better than that.
PSP/PS3 had RemotePlay since the day PS3 launched. And you let Nintendo rip it off again and take credit from you like they did analog sticks. Enable it in all PS3/PS2 games, dvds, blurays, everything. Don't even let developers disable it. Stop giving them the choice to take our choice away. You currently have more games that support remoteplay than Wii U, but that won't last long. I BEGGED developers to use PSP as a second screen for years, and Nintendo finally came through on your rear view mirror. You could have killed Wii U years in advance.
You took everything that made PSP awesome, and discarded it. You dropped UMD, a proper USB port, tv out, the XMB, PSP go's game pausing and the ability to use PS3 controllers. I have 32 GB in my PSP cause of a microSD adapter. My vita? 4 GB. I'd willingly buy a UMD drive for Vita. Though I already have 5 PSPs which could do it just as well.
Please, stop sitting on your hands. Do something!
