That's good to know and hear.

PS fan here ...

We'll see a spike in sales, that's a certainty but it will rapidly decline in sales two or three weeks later. What I'm interested in finding out is the new average AFTER the spike. Japan is doing fine, Europe could be better and America is yet to see any significant sales.

If Sony can raise the average in America to between 10k - 12k and in Europe 15k - 20k then that would be just dandy. Either way, the Vita is just fine and will continue to sell and grow every year.

Of course a price drop at E3 on both the Vita and the memory cards, coupled with a decent advertising campaign, could lead to those averages being 10k -15k higher in both territories. I've got NO idea how Borderlands will effect sales in Japan when it releases there.

Same could be said for my redheaded step child that is the WiiU haha!

Dude ... Minecraft.That's the kind of game PS Vita needs.

The Vita price is fine. $200 for the device is very affordable. Memory cards however, needs another price drop ASAP!

As much as I would really love the PS Vita to be selling "like hotcakes", I'm pretty sure the reality is that the retailers didn't order a lot of stock to begin with. In any case, I'm glad consumer demand exceeded expectations.

I expect you are correct, I find it hard to believe retailers would suddenly decide the massively increase their stock of Vitas.

Yes it's a good sign that they sold out but it's far too early to say whether this will have any lasting impact.

Do hotcakes really sell that well? Hmm.. Also, yes, I hope Sony has something planned for the Vita at E3. Some additional effort from them in the handheld department would.....please me.

Vite deserves these sales, now Sony, bring us more exclusives!

dodgemoose1533d ago

Good stuff. Wonder if it will receive a similar reaction in Europe.

I really hope Sony get a Minecraft bundle set up as I can see that selling like hotcakes as well.

Especially if they give it a custom Minecraft blocky paint job. Maybe shades of green like the creepers?

nope1111532d ago

Who the hell disagreed with you? A creeper faceplate would be brilliant!

GHOSTxx4201532d ago

Haters gon hate. Great idea btw..

dodgemoose1532d ago

Yeah, that's a awesome idea. A whole Minecraft bundle like this would do great (creeper imprinted on the back touchpad 'n' all):


porkChop1531d ago

Yeah I don't get the disagrees lol. When someone thinks of Minecraft they likely think of Creepers, and a Creeper Vita would look amazing. And yeah dodgemoose, it should also be printed on the touchpad.

porkChop1531d ago

Basically I was thinking something like this, just threw this together in PS.

Oh shit, this could be big.

porkChop1532d ago

How well it's actually selling depends on the size of the shipments, but I'm really hoping these were large ones. The Vita really needs sales right now to bring in interest from AAA 3rd parties.
