Sony are one of the strongest multimedia companies in the world, but they haven’t exactly had a perfect record when it comes to console launches. With the recent release of the PS Vita, all eyes are focused on Sony’s launch strategy for their new handheld and, coupled with their past system launches, it becomes easy to question how Sony might want to launch the PS4. In the spirit of humorous negativity, here are ten launch mistakes Sony should avoid with their next generation console hardware.
The big issue the PS3 faced during its launch was its horrendous price tag. In comparison to competing consoles and past Sony products, the PS3 practically cost an arm and a leg; a con that no doubt dissuaded many potential buyers. This high price was justified by the systems numerous features, but it proved to be a serious dent to the system's early sales. Sony have managed to price the Vita comparatively well, so we can only hope this trend continues with the PS4.
