I think Sony should try to introduce that Vita Price Cut into NA now.

darthv721212d ago

that they didnt announce that at the sony show last month. It certainly wouldnt hurt anything.

I myself did purchase one the same night after that conference and Im sure others would have as well if there had been an official price drop announced.

ABizzel11212d ago

It wouldn't have really helped without a solid software launch to back it up.

It made sense for Japan considering a bunch of Japanses games are comin gin the next few weeks, Persona 4 Golden was released not to long ago, and Soul Sacrifice is coming soon as well.

There's nothing really standout coming here in the US. It makes more sense to do a cut around September when Killzone Mercenaries, Tearaway, more PS4 connectivity, and whatever E3 surprises they have are announced for the Vita to take full advantage of the price drop for an entire holiday season, versus 2 or 3 weeks for the month of March.

They may have to suffer until E3, but if they can build up anticipation during E3, Gamescom, and TGS then this will be their chance to finally get the Vita the numbers the hardware deserves.

your constant expression of distaste for nintendo is a classic example of a closet fan in denial.

Just come out and admit it already. People know you really are in love with mario. The more you try to throw them off the scent the more they can see right through.

Apollosupreme1211d ago

A price cut or a Killzone bundle a current prices would make sense when Killzone drops.

Theyellowflash301211d ago

So sales indicate how good a system is? LOL! The PS VIta is the biggest piece of shit on the market then. And the Wii, 3DS, and DS are the best systems out right now.

Price cut without game/service release does not work much. The next big release title is soul sacrifice which will be in April. Also sony's financial year end at March and they are not willing to take much loss before this financial year end. My guess of the price cut will take as early as in April. Or most like in E3, which they can announce some new titles to build some hype to sell the system.

Apollosupreme1211d ago

I disagree. The Vita has a solid lineup. The software is not the problem, only the price of the console and memory cards.

SDF Repellent1212d ago

Xbox 360 is doing great with 6 games in the Top 10 chart.

4/6 of those are shooters, there's something wrong with that picture.

I like FPS as well (Far Cry 3, Metro 2033, BF3), but there's more to gaming than just 1 genre I'd think.

4,600 Vitas. Wtf Sony. Thanks for the price cut.

Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II1212d ago

Yes wii-u and vita sales were poor and shows the old consoles are still dominant in USA with just one nintendo/handheld game in the top 10.

ABizzel11212d ago

Doesn't make sense to have a US price cut when NEW potential hardware moving software isn't there.

March is a good month for Japanese Vita games, which is why it made sense for a price cut and look what happened there, and with more Vita games coming throughout the month of Japan those numbers should stay pretty high for the next few weeks.

Here in the US it would have been a 2 week high, and quickly dropped back down.

September is a better time frame for a US price dorp, when Killzone and Tearaway release, PS4 right around the corner for PS4 & PSV integration, all the major game conferences will be over, and more software will be announced and releasing for the handheld.

PopRocks3591211d ago

To forward your point, if you look at history, the 3DS' price cut was concurrent to the release of two Mario games that same year, both of which sold over a million units before said year ended.

the US sells charts are getting depressing. everything is a shooter except Fire Emblem and NBA 2K13. thats a damn shame. no variety at all.
