@XG247: Yep, word on a release date comes out of Jack Tretton himself.
Leaving christmas to nintendo?
The title in misleading. If PS Vita is releasing in Japan Fiscal year 2012 thats end of March 2012. Not Dec 2012. The key word is "FISCAL"
The title is wrong, it should read "PS Vita coming to Japan end of 2011 - EN/US Next Year"
at least one region is confirmed for 2011
Japan confirmed for end of year 2011, EU/US confirmed for before March 2012, this story is basically completely wrong.
Why so long? noooo
This is misleading. He said they didn't know what territories apart from Japan it would it to by the end of the year. I think US is very likely.
he said by end of fiscal year (march 2012) but this year japan would get it
vita coming THIS YEAR, they said it LIVE ON E3 CONFERENCE
It was a vague statement. It's coming this year, to Japan.
huh, didnt Kaz Hurai say at the conference, coming this holiday? But they did say a few months back, that they were only planning on bringing out in 1 territory this year. I assumed that territory was NA, since they unveiled it at E3.
Could be for Japan, as usual :P here I'm waiting for it already!
its japan that always launches first dudew
. Nintendo announce the 3DS at E3 2010 and launched it officially at March 2011. I could understand if Vita to follow suit though. Still if this is correct; Japan could get it first at the end of 2011 & US/EU for March 2012, then I don't mind it.
still think they should launch in the US first, being that its the biggest market. on top of that, Japan is still buying PSPs, there's no drop in sales of it yet. Releasing it in Japan will probably drop PSP Sales significantly.
so fracking stupid as always at this point i dont care for it now.
Just can just import and change the firmware later on... In the end, everyones are WINNING!!
ah be it this year for canada i dont care but i hope its next year with all the games n everything if not thats fine i always find a way lol
I read on G4TV it'd be released late this year... Which makes sense, why would Sony plan on releasing the Vita right after Christmas? That's terrible marketing...
I'm so tired of Sony releasing stuff first for the smallest market globally, Japan. This is why I buy 3rd party games for xbox, even though I own a 60gb ps3.I can't stand supporting a company that makes its consumers wait because special treatment has to be give to their island's people. Maybe they need to be hacked again to show fucking with customers is bad for business.
Well Sony is a Japanese company it only makes since to release for them first if you don't think you can reach demand. Don't get so but hurt life goes on.... "Maybe they need to be hacked again to show fucking with customers is bad for business. " you need to stfu.
@kyrue you think microsoft dont do the same for america lol.
I hate that Nintendo does it too
When is that quote from? Sounds exactly like what he was saying months ago, before they announced a Holiday 2011 release yesterday.
The PS Vita should come out in North America first. Because the PSP is still selling really well in Japan. So this way if it comes out in NA first Sony can get a hold on the NA market. Because it will be easier to get the Japan market later then the NA one. Because how well the PSP sells in Japan. So I hope it comes out in NA first. Plus if it comes out in NA first then I can play the system sooner.
It's not the smallest Sony handheld market.PSP huge. I'm gutted here in the UK.I wanted mine for Xmas.
@strickers - Nothing is final yet, they said they know more once they start manufacturing units. So worst case scenerio it's Jap only. If every thing goes too plan who says they couldn't release in two regions say, Jap/EU or Jap/US.
WTF i want it in my hands as soon as possible. Please dont release it in spain next year.
This title is incorrect. By the end of the year Japan will have the Vita. Fiscal year (March 2012) all regions will have it. Jack Trenton himself said this only hours ago in an interview on GameTrailers
Yep, NeloAngelo is right dude...! :)
I think A PSV tab is in order here on N4G :)
I could of swear kaz said something in the words of "globally" and "this year, holiday". Anyway, this site doesn't prove much source...
