Sony can’t keep up with demand for the Vita in NA

The Vita is notable absent from store shelves and online sellers in North America, according to Polygon – especially the Borderlands 2 bundle, which only released in May.

A Sony spokesperson said the problem is increased demand, not diminished supply. (PS Vita)

Please Sony, don't give up on the Vita. It still has a lot of potential.
texag2011  +   513d ago
It has nothing to do with keeping up demand. They're trying to get rid of current stock to try something else. Maybe new bundles. I honestly haven't seen Vitas on shelves at Gamestop for 2 months. It has 0 to do with demand. My buddy that works there said they never even get them in anymore.
iamnsuperman  +   513d ago
It could be down to the Playstation TV launching soon. The Playstation TV is basically a vita but in a different shell. They are extremely similar. Sony may be struggling to keep up with the low demand of the Vita because they are focusing (or shifting their focus) on making the Vita form more profitable via Playstation TV (i.e. they are making more and more of these instead of Vitas because they believe that is where the demand is as the Vita, like you said, doesn't have a huge amount of demand)

texag2011.... did you read the article. You ar wrong:

The Vita is notable absent from store shelves and online sellers in North America, according to Polygon – especially the Borderlands 2 bundle, which only released in May.

A Sony spokesperson said the problem is increased demand, not diminished supply.

“We’re seeing healthy consumer demand for PS Vita globally, particularly in markets like Japan,” the representative said.

“The U.S. launch of the slimmer and lighter PS Vita has generated strong interest among gamers, and we’re working to replenish supply here to ensure continued momentum leading into the holidays.”

Vita has only sold like, 8-9M in 2 and a half years. There's no heavy demand for that thing; they must have an extremely tiny manufacturer making Vitas if they can't keep up with demand.

What a surprise. A sensible and logical answer that has nothing to do with the doom / gloom people jump to.

Anyway, glad to see Vita interest is up. It's a great console thats really only held back by some peoples negativity and high memory card prices (thankfully they're not as bad as before).
JBSleek  +   513d ago
No this isn't logical and sensible. Sony is not having any issues with demand for Vita. Sony sold around 10,000 units in June. If anything this is forced shortage by Sony by simply not having many in stock.
PsychOff  +   513d ago
Actually I don't see why this can't be true, the borderlands 2 bundle was sold out everywhere and Sony already phased out the OLED models.

So if that is the case, even with poor sales in June this could be true. There were several reports of the borderlands bundle being sold out almost everywhere.
kingdom18  +   513d ago
How is this not logical? They have a poor selling handheld, sales have picked up some, so there is a shortage of them, makes perfect sense to me.
DualWielding  +   513d ago
I think is simply a case that both Sony and retailers had very low expectations and had short stocks so what they are saying is technically correct the cause of the shortage is that demand exceeded expectations... what they fail to note is that expectations were very low to begin with
texag2011  +   513d ago
Peoples attitudes are a result of their impression of the console. It isn't the person's flat for having a negative attitude, it is caused by something that they're not pleased with about the system. Plus It goes way beyond high memory card prices. The games people expected to be hits are sloppy & unpolished. The only quality games are targeted to niche markets. I know everyone Bashes Call of Duty but if Declassified would have been successful it would have boosted system sales tremendously. Same goes with Resistance & Killzone. I blame a lot of it on the poor controls.
MotherLight  +   513d ago
Sloppy and unpolished? Was Uncharted Unpolished? What about Sly Cooper? Tearaway? Killzone? Gravity Rush? Soul Sacrifice? Freedom Wars? DBZ: Battle of Z (people may not like the game but it wasn't broken or unpolished)? Ragnarok Odyssey? Blaz Blue? Dead or Alive 5? Street Fighter x Tekken? Need for Speed Most Wanted? Dynasty Warriors? Ninja Gaiden? Dragon's Crown? MLB? Moto GP? Sonic Racing? Hot Shots Golf? Virtua Tennis 4?

I really could go on but no point really, no matter how many awesome games that were very polished on the Vita I list, it won't make a difference here and people call this a Sony site lol.

Poor controls? What? I can't even respond to something like that, the controls are great given it is a handheld.

Sadly Declassified sold pretty damn well also like 500k, even though it was a terrible game, pathetically it sold more than much more deserving Vita games.

Meh I don't know why I bother.

You're the problem with this site don't get so angry bro. You need to learn to think critically of all systems & games.

First of all Uncharted was well done & I have praised it on multiple occasions. It was the only Well done Mass appealing Vita game that was released. If you would have read my post before blowing your top you'd realize that I note games like Tearaway, Gravity Rush, Freedom Wars, Plus nearly everything else you mentioned are Niche games. If Sony wants to sell this thing they need to appeal to a wider audience. It takes time, a good studio, & a lot of money to produce a proper title. They need a quality multiplayer shooter to get serious FPS gamers on board. They need also proper RPG (Not JRPG) like Diablo or Skyrim.

And you can't say that the controls offer anything close to a console experience. The sticks are awful & tiny. They do not click in. & the system is missing 2 shoulder buttons. I'd love to go 1 on 1 with you in Battlefield. You stream on your Vita & I'll use my DS4 controller lets see who has the advantage.

If you, & every other fanboy, could set aside your stubbornness for a while & say something critical about the Vita maybe Sony will catch on to what they need to improve. I have a Vita & it is a quality system but It cannot deliver a console experience & it does not have the types of quality games they need for more people to hop on board.

Umm the controls aren't supposed to be equal to a console, once again do I have to remind you that the PS Vita is a handheld and not a console which many people seem to get confused.

Honestly what is so hard to understand about that?

Yes nearly everything I listed are niche games, okay /s. If you say so, I think it is you who isn't doing the proper reading.

Please don't PM me with further crap either. I really didn't blow my top at all, I responded to you and just chuckled at the fact everyone calls this a Sony site yet so many people here hate on the Vita for illegitimate reasons.

Obviously you blew your top if you had to PM me, that is a clear sign of a blown top on N4G.

I am not saying the system couldn't have better support or it doesn't have its problems but you said the only quality games the Vita have are aimed at niche markets which isn't true. Plain and simple.

Many of those games appeal to a large market of gamers and sell very well on consoles, they just didn't sell well on the Vita.

The cod bundle was the 1st vita i got and i thought it was pretty solid. I only play multiplayer on cod and had a lot of fun with it. I bought assassins creed for it when it came out and little big planet and have enjoyed all 3. I got a 2nd vita a couple months late because i have 2 kids and the free games with plus has kept them both happy as well. The controles imo are the best any handheld has ever had and i've own or at least played on all of them. Its a great hand held it justdoesn't get the recognition it deserves.

jnemesh  +   513d ago
I am glad to see it selling so well! I think the remote play and cross play features with the PS4 are the "killer app" that will drive adoption. Personally, I am looking forward to more games supporting the 2nd screen functionality!
iamnsuperman  +   513d ago
I don't think it will be. I think people will still be put of getting it since it doesn't do much apart from gaming. If Sony can somehow make remote play work on their own (needs to be their own) mobile and tablet products I can see those product shooting up in popularity because they have that everyday functionality as well.

They have kind of laid the groundwork with remote play working for all games and that you can connect a DS3 to a Sony device (mobile and tablet). It is just that next step (if it is possible). It would sell more PS4s as well. One of the reasons I want the Vita to fail (I have one by the way) because I think it could give Sony a good kick up the arse to look into such a venture (at the moment the Vita is holding this idea back because Sony wants it to sell)

gamerfan0909  +   513d ago
Sony has been saying this for months about the Vita and every NPD that comes out tells a different story. Why continue to make up stuff? It's selling tremendously in Japan and not so much worldwide. Why lie?
zerog  +   512d ago
Because its probably not making stuff up, ever think of that? Apparently there are a lot of people commenting who know nothing of manufacturing so heres how this is probably working. In manufacturing theres this process called LEAN manufacturing you can probably google it. Anyway it really got its start in Japan with toyota and has been adopted by millions of conpanies worldwide. The basic idea is to trim fat off production and keep it smooth as possible to reduce costs and overhead. Basiclly never have an overstock, build what you need as you need it to fill orders, only keep enough materials on hand to do what you expect in the short term and only have a production environment big enough to meet the estimated quantity. The point is why do you need 3 production lines running when 1 will meet demand or why keep enough raw material for 100,000 units when you only build 1000 a day? You would be paying for equipment running and storage that wasn't being used and that isn't smart buisness. So if a company has been selling 50,000 units a month for a year and practice LEAN then they're going to cut production back to just meet that demand because keeping the capacity to do more is just costing money and not making it. So then comes a surge and all at once demand is 100,000 a month they're not going to be able to keep up and it will take time to catch up if the trend continues because they will need to up their production envirnment.
DragonKnight  +   513d ago
I obviously can't speak for anyone else, but every game related store I have around me has Vita's in stock, so it's a bit much to say North America if I can find it in at least 6 stores in less than a 2 mile radius.

Lol come on man. Why would anyone sue them over that? I don't think you'd get very far with that lawsuit. Besides there's still games coming for it. It does seem they're gearing up to just bundle it in with PS4's as a remote play controller similar to the gamepad, though.

Good for Sony! I wish Sony made the new PSVITA model in different colors ON BOTH SIDES NOT THE JUST ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT!.As for a bundle,is it really necessary?I mean if people want both systems they can just buy both of them at the same time without the need of a bundle.

Even after this article I still feel it was a waste of money! I got it like 3 or 4 months after launch but at least I got the better screen quality! Even though I got some ugly extra dark stuff going on in the screen that's usually noticeable during load time and dark and great areas. It's weird it's like the screen was bleeding at some point then dried out and left a permanent mark.

Typical Sony fanatic butt hole... Yea I know what it's called, but I guess some how I'm entitled because after spending all that money on it I should have known I was going to get a screen like that..

Typical " bubut I own it all" response..

I don't care what you claim to own, for all I know mommy and daddy could have bought it for you so it has no true value in your eyes.

I clearly went on to say mine has the better quality! Or did your Sony glasses read over that? Obviously I'm comparing it to the newer led versions so I must know enough about it smart ass..

It was the psvita and I was excited about it so sue me for not researching how oiled looks in dark screens. If I want something I will look into it as much as I need to to warrant the buy and I clearly bought it. I dealt with the consequence but in the end like you said it's not a big deal. I am more disappointed in the lack of great games that aren't ports, considering Sony owns more studios that ms and Nintendo combined....

Typical dumb ass response.

I own every new system under the sun PS4, Wii U, Xbox One, 3DS and PS Vita.

Actually there is nothing wrong with the screen was the entire point of my comment. Maybe you shouldn't be buying expensive things then without ever researching them first.

All it takes is a couple seconds out of your life to search on google for the answer to why OLED screens do this and why it isn't a problem because it only happens when the screen goes completely black.

It would probably be wise so you don't burn in the screen either since you probably don't know that.

Nope, but I guess your job keeps you so busy you don't even have a single second to spare, that is why you're commenting on N4G like the rest of us. You aren't any more important than me or anyone else here, we all are alive and have lives and a huge majority of us such as myself do work also.

While I agree that demand for Vita isn't very high, it's silly to say that people that bought it aren't happy with their purchase.

It actually seems that most people that bought are pretty satisfied. Most for remote play and PSN Plus alone. Most obviously knew what games were available and what functions they desired when they bought it.

Man, look at all the trolls. Same ills Xbox fanboys that claim they own or owned the console but never play it because it has no games or some other such nonsense.

The fact that JB up there keeps saying the PS TV is competing with Apple TV and the like is all you need to know about his knowledge on the Vita, but here he is. air can't seem to say anything with detail about anything Sony, but his Vita is apparently collecting dust? Otaku, the Nintendo fanboy, commenting on the competition's handheld? iceman saying things that don't make sense, as usual (wasn't he down to one bubble not too long ago?) spacecat equating his little town to the rest of the world, as detractors tend to do. Element, who seems life the stealth trolling type and always has a negative word for the Sony products he supposedly owns, while only having good things to say about his Microsoft stuff. gamerfan accusing Sony of always doing something they actually haven't done before now. Illusive saying... Whatever the hell his trolling comment is this time. And texag coupling hyperbole with anecdotal evidence, though it's all likely a lie.

There are more Sony haters in here than supporters, many of whom would be quick to call out the Sony fans in an Xbox article.

Sony, apparently, is Microsoft, and would lie about demand, something that's pretty easy to be caught on, given things like NPD monthly. According to these guys, it makes more sense for Sony to lie than for interest in their handheld to have picked up.

Edit: And before I'm done, a few more add their names to the roster.

The borderlands bundle is selling well, that's why there's no stock. Sony went from selling 10 a week to 15. The one guy in Foxconn who makes the vitas is already working 16 hr days but there's not enough demand to hire a second worker, thus the shortage.

I honestly don't think Sony has a vita division. Its prob one intern who contacts Indy devs on twitter to beg them to release their game on vita. Sony didnt talk about the vita lineup at E3 because Sony doesnt remember releasing the vita. They would have to call up studios to find out if anyone is dumb enough to make games for it. Face it, it's a controller not a handheld these days.

At Xmas drop it to 149.99. Then bring at 2 big first party games... Infamous and Uncharted. This will boose sales even further.
