It's difficult to find a PlayStation Vita to buy right now, but Sony is working to "replenish" North American supplies, a representative from the company told Polygon today.
The switch to the slim model. They arent going to drop the vita
Polygon caring about Vita? how sweet....
Hmmm, there must be a way to spin this as bad news.... Nope... <Goes back to playing Virtues Last Reward, and downloading this months free PSN+ Vita titles>
it' probably the same thing that happened with the playstation camera, Sony and retailers had very low expectations so stock was low and they got caught by surprise when demand was higher than expected... Unfortunately this does not necessarily means that demand for Vita's is crazy big now, it only means that original expectations were very low
I have a Vita myself, but I think they're probably ending it. In North America, iOS and Android are the kings of mobile.
Mobile phone games <<<<<<<&l t;<<<< Vita and 3DS games
you prefer candy garbage to a Tearaway or Killzone? you have some weird tastes my friend.
no I don't. But we're talking about the masses here. Most people would rather everything be on one device. Like I said, I OWN a Vita, so I don't know why you are taking pot shots at me.
i feel bad about your gaming experience my friend
I got a vita for remote play.. its was awful.. I've tried to play watch dogs but the constant frame drop was terrible.. works decent on resogun an Injustice.
Are you using the direct conmection?
The frame rate drop is due to Watch_Dogs running like shit. Not remote play itself. Watch_Dogs runs like shit on everything. So how can you say remote play is awful then say it works with other games? That would mean it's not awful.
I said decent.. they were still choppy an laggy.. ik for sure it isn't my internet connection an im literally 1 foot away so idk its just not good
PSP is better.
For hackers you mean.
Considering it sold 3k in NA last week, it's clearly an issue of low supply and besides, there are a ton of VITAs on Amazon, it's clearly not selling out.
According to who? VGChartz?
And, based on your sources, the XB1 has been outselling the PS4 every month. Oh, wait...
Where did I say that?
ShopTo have posted news that Sony has confirmed the Vita is currently selling out mainly across the US which is the reason for the current shortage. I'm not convinced that this is true but it's strange that it's coming from ShopTo.
A rep from Gamestop confirmed the same thing, saying they're working with Sony to try to restock.
I gave my local GameStop a call, they said they'll have the Borderlands Vita bundle back in stock by August.
I'm glad I got mine when I did. I always wanted the Vita, then I heard about the new revised slim and I figured I'd jump on that to have the latest model. Bought the Boderlands bundle and it was a very satisfying purchase. I love the Vita, and I can't see myself even going back to my 3DS. Its a great and powerful little system. I think another reason we are seeing such low stock is because they will be bundling vita's with PS4. So i'm sure Sony had to make a decision to get the bundles ready as they make more for individual purchase. Cheers to all that have one, and that have PS+ Cause there are some great games.
I'm glad to live in Japan and see people playing Vitas on the train every single game. It does seem to remain very hardcore though... Most women play mobile "puzzle games" now with Disney characters... Most kids play 3DS...youkai watch is on FIRE right now. I think the Vita is absolutely amazing and I think big part of its niche status is the life and market changes. People who drive have little reason to own a vita. It is GREAT for train rides and planes.
I bought my VITA on the first day and I haven't stop playing with it, I love the control remote feature because I can play FFXIV when my brother is using the TV.
