So I've been thinking about it and I have a few predictions when it comes to Sony's handheld. Some I think will happen, while others I'm sure will not but would be pretty cool if they did.
1. Price drop
Its happening. I predict at least a $50 price drop if they don't drop the price to what the 3DS sells for. This would be for both models, although the 3G version already had a price drop.
2. Bundles to be announced.
Probable with whatever big game is coming out this xmas, but that isnt what I'm predicting. I'm predicting that Sony will announce a PSV/PS4 bundle. Get both consoles in one box. It'll serve as the PS4 top tier bundle. Crazy I know, but I have a good feeling about this one.
3. Discontinuing 3G model or introducing 4G model.
I can see Sony dropping the 3G version and only doing WiFi going forward. While i love the 3G features, i fully understand why people don't like em. On the other hand, i think a 4G LTE version that didnt have the restrictions on it that 3G does could do well. Actually playing a game online using LTE would be amazing and i believe LTE could do it (i was playing Battlefield 3 using the 3G that can be found on the Vita with no problems). Because of the universal language of LTE this would also allow people to get a Verizon Vita, ending the problems people have with going with AT&T (i still believe AT&T has the better network for internet).
4. PS2 classics
The Vita can handle PS2 games, they just need to be made to work. I can see Sony moving into this area. In a perfect world the ones we have purchased on PS3 will work (like Minis and PS1) but i can see them charging for those again.
Thats what i got on the Vita side for now. Im expecting a big E3 from both Sony and Microsoft. Sony has a new platform and i think need a new strategy for existing hardware while Microsoft also has new hardware and need to give the user a good reason to get the Xbox. With the generation shift and both coming at the same time i think its an open field.
