@ Etharius - not really, the Vita's a year behind the 3DS in the cycle, so you'd expect the 3DS to be putting out more games for at least a year - it takes a while for dev's to build things for new platforms. Same reason there's _always_ a drought early in a system's life. The Vita's actually got less of a drought than most systems that have been launched before it, it's just the internet driving the ADHD sensationalism of today's society.
As for PES 2013, that is potentially a disturbing sign, but it's far too early in the life of a console to go worrying about these things, or reading too much into it. Konami would have done a lot of the work on the PSV PES well before now, so their decision wouldn't be based on sales beyond the first month or two of 2012 (particularly given the Vita has a viable download-only path to sales - ie, bugger all distribution and publishing costs if they want it). The fact that they didn't deny a Vita version also opens the possibility that they're working on cross-play features or the like with PS3, but don't have enough certainty in development to announce anything (this is, of course, speculation, but no less so than that in the article - suggesting Konami is forgetting the Vita is a little tabloid ;)).
I'd probably refer people to the doom and gloom articles at the launch of the PS3 and 3DS (and even the launch of the PS2 - it was all there - no games, Sony/Nintendo is doomed, you name it). Most gamers (even the 'hardcore' ones) just don't think long-term enough.

That is pretty worrying. There's been a deafening silence regarding new Vita games in the last few months, and even the Playstation Blog seemingly has nothing to say.
Given all the support they were reportedly racking up prior to launch, I haven't seen much to prove that they actually managed it. At least Dragon's Crown is back under construction, but shy of Gravity Rush, MGS and ZOE I'm not seeing much on the horizon.
You know you're in trouble when even 3DS is putting out more titles than you are ><
