Software-wise, Sony's strength is in developing new IP. But the new stuff for Vita (so far) isn't much of a system seller.
As for whether to stagger releases, I'm sure it was a tough call. Nintendo got blasted for having no strong titles for the launch of the 3DS. Sony responded. Yes, they could have staggered their releases, but then they'd run the risk of having a slower, less dramatic launch.
From their perspective, they've already won over the early adopters, so there's no need to justify their purchase with more releases right away. And anyone continuing to buy a Vita is still buying one within that "early adopter" window. There's plenty out there for most Vita owners, so there's no rush to fill the gap just yet. I'm sure E3 will be filled with tons
of Vita release news. If it isn't, well, then, that's the time to worry.
