Sony can't keep with PSVita demand

Forums - Sales Discussion - Sony can't keep with PSVita demand

Sony knows there's not enough demand so they're shipping small numbers on purpose.



Around the Network

Sony has been using VGC for tracking, so they thought they only sold 5K instead of 50K in May, and figured that the stock will last them until New Years.



Am I the only one around here who remembers Vita doing something like 60k+ last month according to NPD? That would explain shortages, especially if sales are still increased.

Without actual numbers, this means nothing. Last charts they didn't even sell 4k units... And this doesn't mean that you can't find Vitas, I guess. The system will never ever get anywhere near PSP sales.

Because its hard to gauge such small demand. They don't want to make/ship too many and more importantly the retailers don't want to order too many.

People need to understand that manufacturers only ship what retailers order.

Vita is virtually dead in the west and the retailers are very wary.


OhMy! I think you are right!

Hey now get that crap out of here.  Only things like "vita doomed" and "sony must have used them to wipe their asses" are allowed here.  It can't be possible that they're actually being sold.



Maybe they just diverted most of their supply to the EU countries where Slim got released in June? Cause here in my country i'm seeing more Vitas than I ever saw in its lifetime...

No happyness allowed on Vita thread.
