What Will Vita's Sales Be With The Official Price Cut In The US?(Week Ending Aug 24th)

Forums - Sony Discussion - What Will Vita's Sales Be With The Official Price Cut In The US?(Week Ending Aug 24th)

Not sure how well advertised this price cut will be and not sure how much impact it will have short term...

I'm expecting only around 19K in USA, but I really hope I am wrong.

20k at absolute most. I'm expecting around 15k.

It needs a big price cut on memory too, bigger than the one they actually did. And more big marquee titles at retail instead of just indies, which I doubt will be enough to hook even the core community at large.



Have some time to kill? Read my shitty games blog. http://www.pixlbit.com/blogs/586/gigantor21

why most of everybody expecting low? Its a price cut, japan had an increase from 5k to 60k after price cut, i know a game came out then 2 major ones week after but still, US has to do at least 25k imo. Killzone+rayman should push around 45k-50k that week. Guess its just me but i think under 20k after a major price cut wont look good. Europe not to sure about though?

Lack of advertising from Sony and overall it's doing pretty poor in the states.

You might as well tell me. I'm guessing it was a pretty big jump.

(EDIT: Lol. Definitely a big jump. Wow.)

Here is 3ds results

13k ⇒ Week Prior To Price Cut (Aug 6th)
51k ⇒ Week With Price Cut, only 2days of sales (Aug 13th)
94k ⇒ Full week of sales after Price Cut(Aug 20th)

No software at all during this time, only must have game LoZ OoT which came out 2 months before price cut!



21,895

Edit: Change mine to 17,640



Around 12K.



Selling less than 20k after a 50 dollar price drop won't be a good look for Sony. I'm changing mine from 17k to 24.7k.
