Research firm Media Create reports that sales of Sony's (SNE) PlayStation Vita plummeted after an initial two-day surge, with the firm only moving ~72K units the week before Christmas - marking a 75% W/W decline. Ongoing chatter about technical problems with the device may have contributed to the disappointing sales figures. Shares of SNE +1.2% premarket.

    SNE is great at initially creating and innovating then getting pushed out of them by releasing late, expensive, overly-proprietary products.

     

    The iconic Walkman was eaten alive by the iPod thanks SNE mishandling of MiniDisc and slowness/unwillingness to adapt to digital music. The PSP was cool and successful, now iOS/Android is the only mobile gaming platform that really matters and this Vita is doomed.
