Quick on the heels of yesterday's press release for MMA Supremacy, which indicated that PlayStation Vita is coming out this fall, news has emerged from the UK in the form of a flier, indicating that Vita might be coming out sooner than you think.
wow if true thats way sooner than everyone thought. i was thinking november the earliest but if europe is getting in 2011 then japan and na will definitely get it in 2011
hmmm I want the PSVita day one but I don't want it in october but maybe in december or jan 2012. resistance 3, batman, uncharted, cod, battlefield, assassin creed make me think that way. Guess I need to start doing some overtime if this is true.... prolly explains why nintendo dropping price so early instead of waiting for the holidays.
Well it would be better for Sony and eager gamers everywhere if it released this year. Also Nintendo's probably not dropping the price of the 3DS because of Vita, since they're not competing for the same markets, atleast in year one as Sony has said. Nintendo dropped 3DS's price because it wasn't doing so well.
The 3ds is actually doing pretty damn well in units sold all things considering. Its price drop was purely a vita defense maunuver
Personally, Vita is number one on my list of must haves,followed closely by Uncharted 3. So regardless I'm picking this up day one. Can't wait, I really do hope this date is true.
None of the games announced for the Vita interest me at all. I have a PS3 for those games, you know! But I'll probably grab one anyway just for the chance to download some PSP/PS1 games to it from the PSN, which I can't do with my PSP2000 for... obvious reasons. Hopefully, the PSV (I hate this abreviation, BTW, this is the same as ps3 save file extensions!) will get some of those Battle games from Bandai (Gundam/Macross) and a new Project Diva. That would be just... perfect.
@Canary Why do ppl always say that about Playstation games when brought to a handheld? "Oh well I rather play that on console". And you wouldn't want to play pokemon and whatever mario variation they make for DS these days on console? It seems like a double standard to me. So many swear that Nintendo has SO many new IPs for DS/3DS but what really always sells on the systems are mario(insert tag line here) and their 3 other staples. Why is it so wrong when sony brings there best to handhelds? LBP,MNR,WOHD,and SS Delta were MADE for on the go, they would work seamlessly. Uncharted is a stereotypical home experience but we don't know what they ae doing quite yet to make it portable. The same thing happened with the PSP. "Oh, Birth by Sleep, Dissidia,Crisis Core,God of war, etc shoulda been on PS3 not PSP!" No, how about just buy a flippin PSP for the awesome games it has! PS. This in no way claiming you as that type but it is a similar mindset that i've noticed with some and it irks me.
Right before November where 4 of the biggest games of the year come out? Doesn't seem logical at all.
Not only that, but Battlefield 3 comes out three days before it... If this is true, I won't be buying a Vita until after the holidays are over.
@OllieBoy - Your comparing hardware to games. Point is you either buy Vita or ya don't. Why would a £40 game on another platform make any difference to Vita sales. Get a job and get both.
i agree i need to preorder to guarantee myself one and this will be the first gaming handheld i will buy new
Warning... Wallet Critic Failure Imminent
its going down captain just picked up Killzone 3 today and the Move bundle :) but my wallet is :(
"Also, I wouldn't hold my breath for Tales of Xillia yet, it might not even be coming." Noooo! Please let it be localized! On other news if the article is true then I would probably be eating only cup noodles for a very long time... :D
Sorry, was just stating the biggest possibility. However, no one was expecting Graces F to come as well and it happened. I guess that everyone will rant and complain about Xillia on their twitter/facebook/youtube page and they will cave in at some point. In fact, it probably already started. It also have better chances than before since Namco says they want to bring more tales games to the west (they even wants to remake some of them)
I should join the ranters then. lol!
cant wait to buy it
If it does come this year, I won't be getting it until next year, too many other things to buy this fall.
I'm starting to think about it, and Vita coming out this year doesn't fit into the wester release calendar at all. Unless Sony want a huge backlash from publishers, they'll wait until the new year. I mean be serious, look at the Q4 Line up Resistance 3 Gears of War 3 Uncharted 3 Ico Collection MGS HD Collection Zelda Skyward Sword Battlefield 3 Skyrim Forza 3 Halo Anniversary Modern Warfare 3 Witcher 2 Xbox 360 Dark Souls Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 I might have missed some out, but that list is full of blockbuster titles. Where will Vita fit in? If it's released it'll get eaten alive by all the titles. It just doesn't make sense.
Resistance 3 Uncharted 3 Ico Collection MGS HD Collection Skyrim Witcher (bought on pc already) Dark Soul (Maybe) I got room for Vita. not everyone is looking forward to or is buying every game on that list.
Yeah but the point is that for publishers and the industry in general it doesn't fit. Vita coming in the middle of all of those huge releases is gonna either kill sales of the games or kill Vita sales, or both. Which will piss off publishers. Sony should go for an early 2012 release. They should get it out in Japan at least by Christmas, then launch in NA and EU in January.
I just don't see it happening. jack said about 100 times already it probably only come out in only one country this year and we all know it will be japan. Jap-October-Nov US-March EU-march That's my guess.
It doesn't make sense. PSP is still selling well in Japan and they release the PS Vita there first instead of the west where PSP is practically dead?
i would be so f/n broke.
i am so f/n broke haha...but even with the killer fall line up,im sure it still might be best to get it out on the market before the holidays
yup let the buzz fly and stores stack up for the holidays.
I really can't see Sony missing out on the chance to drop the Vita before this holiday season.
im getting desktop gaming rig for xmas im getting skyrim war in the north and the new star wars mmo if it out for my pc vita out this fall would be tragedy but in way good all new hardware starts off slow by time march came along alot of good title would be on it
I guess I was under the impression that the Vita was still a year off. If this comes out this year my wallet will be sad, but at least I'll be happy.
I'm getting it day one, cant wait. Dont you just love new techs.
Sounds unlikely...it's a gut feeling, but I think the earliest it can release is 2012...but that's just me.
