Forums - Sony Discussion - PSVita Bundles that could save the system.

Incase you missed it Minecraft is due to be released on the PSVita in 2 months (august 29th-phsysical+download) and sony have yet to indicate any sort of push for the games up coming release. As many have noted Minecraft has potential to push Vita hardware beyond any titles we've seen released on the plaform in recent time, especiallly beyond the likes of a late  and poorly ported Borderlands 2, which still managed a fair hardware boost. Minecraft sales has remained incredibly high across all the platforms its touched and it has the evergreen legs that the Vita longs for. What do you think a bundle and martketing push would do for the Vita in the second half of 2014?

I think its not enough that sony simply push Minecraft but that they advertise it alongside Vita exclusives through bundles and marketing to bring light to many of its great titles; A fully functional portable Minecraft will be the reason many young teens start paying attention to the system; A strong library migt seal the deal. To finalise the re-launch of sorts I think an introduction of new colours.

Could these bundles make a difference, is the pricing realistic? Let me know what bundles you think could make a difference to the systems sales with its current game line up.

may help a tiny bit.......but at this point nothing will "save" it.



I would love that jrpg bundle but the Vita doesn't need bundles, it needs AAA games that appeal to a wider audience like Final Fantasy or God of War and etc

Oh and they can't be half baked ports/games either

I don't think any of those will make a big impact.

If they REALLY want to move a tonne of Vitas they would do a FF7 remake bundle.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I don't think anyone is going to buy a Vita to play Minecraft.

I think everyone that wants Minecraft, at this point has it. Putting a Vita bundle with Minecraft will NEVER save the Vita. Just stop with the dreams, the Vita's life in everywhere except Japan is over.



The Vita has had many bundles and has often been priced below the 3ds (at least here in Aus). Unfortunately the console is just not desirable and I doubt minecraft will help. I can get minecraft on 6 different pieces of electronics that I own. Why would I buy a vita for it?



If it had came 1 year ago maybe I could think it would make the Vita a lot of sales.
But now people can play it at PS3/360 and will can play too in PS4/XBO... I doubt Vita will take the sales.

Look at its weekly sales averaging 50-60k. Clearly there are tons of people still people still discovering the game and the handheld interation may generate additional interest.



Nothing can save the Vita.
