I am still a bit unsure about the rear touchpad, but the screen is awesome and the sticks are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

The problem is that the Vita is a handheld designed for adults, when the traditional market for those is children. It costs too much and is too big to be used by children (they can't use that brilliant rear touchpad without holding with one hand and pointing with the other, and many women have the same problem), and it can't escape the "kid games" stigma (the Wii-inspired interface doesn't help) with older gamers.
