Sony Computer Entertainment is bullish on PS Vita's future in the current fiscal year, despite its lack of Vita software shown during its E3 press conference this week. The company said this week that it expects to sell ten million units of its newest hand-held system by March 2013 – the end of its current fiscal year. It will do this, it claims, by releasing "blockbuster games" during the holiday season and by strengthening the system's online offerings as well. Unfortunately Sony didn't do a very good job of highlighting what these "blockbuster titles" will be at E3 this week.
The biggest titles for Vita shown at its E3 press conference were Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation and Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified.
Despite the lack of software, Sony said that it has no plans to do what Nintendo did early on with the 3DS – cut its price.
While we wish them well, a system without a decent amount of new software is destined to failure. Perhaps Sony has a number of PS Vita exclusive titles that it plans to reveal later this year, but its E3 presence for Vita seems to be almost non existent…
