UK Vita charts, Dead or Alive?

Dead or Alive 5+ bursts into the top five while the Vita other big hitters continue to juggle for position. But,Vita sales are in an odd state at the moment, Persona is clearly not selling as it should have, while gamers have turned to sports as their games of choice, probably because its too cold to go out and do the real thing. Sub-£10 Virtua Tennis has to be the bargain of all time and Sega will be happy with the continued performance of All Stars Racing (Dead or Alive 5 Plus, PS Vita)

I think its a mistake that Vita hasnt dropped price world wide yet. Its obvious the Japanese price drop worked and Sony could have been riding all this good press from the PS4 event.

Its like everyone is just waiting for it to happen, and same goes for PS3. I think maybe by E3 they will drop both, but if they dont I really have to shake my head in wonder.

you cant drop the price, when there are no big hitters coming right?

dont you get it a lot of vita's big games for the west will release in summer to fall

killzone mercenary

valhalla knights 3

so a price drop may likely come after e3

E3 will be the last possible moment they drop the price.

The thing is that they cant really do it now because there is no major software releases to help guide the price cut so to speak. Japan had 4 major releases over 2 weeks in preparation of the price cut and that is what helped hardware sales.

I think its also important for Sony to consider cutting the prices on the memory cards... I think that is a deal breaker for some people.

But I see E3 as the place... rumours of a new AC being released, and COD sold better than AC3L so maybe Activision will release another (and actually put in some effort). There is hope, but Sony has to act.

What is it for me if they dropped the vita price when i already bought it. I want price drop for the games and memory cards. I want great ports and exclusives. I want them to unlock the vita features. I also want to know if gaikai will let me play any game anywhere i want. If they did these things the price of the vita won't matter. People would buy it even if it is 400$..

Great potential to vita that's why i'm keeping it. The sooner the ps4 released the better for vita..

Those memory card prices are ridiculous . It probably cost Sony less than $5 to make a 32gb memory card. I think if Sony would just include a memory card with the Vita and sell it like $199 with a 16gb card or $229 with the 32gb version, then they can still make a profit for each Vita sold and customer will be more enticed to buy it.
