Forums - Sony Discussion - Vita selling out in Japan

These guys (PSLS) point out that this March could be the best month for the Vita in Japan since launch. Much of it was already raised here. Hopefully they are right.

Good for vita and sorry for being the realistic one but even if some developers saw the sales of the vita reach 500k this week the games they would start making wont be ready for another two years at least


The benefit may be more a case of them making some of their 3ds exclusive games multiplatform. That  could be a small as a few months of porting, for games  which aren't out yet or haven't had a western release this leaves the potential for them launching on 3dS+Vita at the same time. 

I was planning to pick of a 3DS year but I might wait it out to see if japanese developer finally start paying attention to the vita, which I already own. All I really want is for Square enix to take notice and consider porting  Kingdom Hearts (3d+HD), FFType0 anfd bravery default would be awesome too.

Finally.

Soul Sacrifice did the miracle.


yeah nothing to do with the price cut that is already in effect at most retailers. lol.



I'm not really here!

The challenges of a pricecut come in the shape of sustained sales, not a one-off week.

If sales stay high THEN its a success.

You're not being reallistic You're being Troll... is proved that ports to Vita can be done easily (in 6 months  and half Oddwolrd Stranger was ported by ONLY ONE PERSON to the PSVita... Yeah sound crazy, but that was confirmed by the developer...)

 

and the very least not ports of past games.. rather more multi games from Namco, CRAPcom, square, SEGA, etc.. and from little developers.. being proved that on Vita sales are good for niche games (Demon gaze, Ragnarok Oddissey, MonPiece are some examples)

Lets not forget that even at its oh so little install base, the Vita version of Persona 4 has sold almost the same as the PS2 version with its millions and millions of install base.

I'm sure developrs have taken notice and have already started making /porting games for the vita months ago.

Case in point, DOA5+ got announced just a few months ago and is already being released this march. Muramasa also just got announced recently and is getting released end of the month I believe in Japan...



Fucking poseurs. I had the Vita before it was cool.



good to hear...just hope that Sony will do the same in Europe & America...
