IGN - Greg and Colin sit down to discuss the startlingly positive Vita sales in Japan the last couple of weeks on the back of the handheld's new price drop.
Great to see the Vita getting some life over there. (Pun intended) Hopefully that price drop will be in effect around the world soon. Whatever sells more units is cool with me. I want more developers to pay attention to the Vita. It's such a great piece of hardware that is never really taken advantage of.
These guys have great chemistry. Started watching the "Conversation with Colin" series on Youtube and I found myself watching for two hours lol.
You should check out the podcasts. I don't always agree with Colin & Greg but they're a good duo and they're fun to listen to. P.S Hurray for Vita! Didn't Soul Sacrifice release in Japan today?
Is it really startling? Great games and a price cut = sales. Shocker.
Its great to see the vita bloom its a great machine. A global price cut is in order. My vita some how knows about this......since the price drop she's been walking around the house like she owns the place. ( yes my vita is a she....no way am I touching and rubbing its front and backside then refer it as a he.)
Good then maybe a few more mid-size devs in Japan will make games for it, and while it will not provide Vita with Western flagship titles, we might see a couple decent JRPGs with mild mainstream appeal that will give its library a bit more depth, and make it a reasonable purchase for a certain segment of the audience as a "cult" machine.
Cut memory card price..or at least Bundle 16GB MC.
Drop it here in the US quickly!
I hope Minecraft comes to PSV
Seriously Sony, drop the price globally and sales will flare up IMO. Also, if possible, the memory cards prices too.
Patience my friend. Sony will probably drop the price around the release of tearaway and Killzone Mercenaries. It would be stupid to drop the price now without the release of any big titles hence the price drop in Japan with the release of all those hunter games. Motorola RAZR i
I guess that kinda makes sense. Still though, I cant keep surviving on my 4gig mem card XC I had to delete some stuff to make space for all those 4 free games Sony just gave out.
@ r21, are you buying the physical media or you preferred the digital? because those 4 free games wild arms, patapon, it will only take a gigabyte so there is still plenty of space. i got an 8 gig but i still buy physical media. it doesnt bother me if i need to change game cards as opposed to digital where you just need to select it right away. and digital games are still much more expensive. no resale value even.
I've been buying alot of digital titles on the vita and also downloaded a bunch of other free games so it looks like i will have to upgrade soon. The price is the only thing stopping me and I really rather use that amount of cash to buy Soul sacrifice :C
