Kotaku - The signs were there for Sony. This year's Tokyo Game Show was shaping up to be the biggest ever, and it's new Vita handheld would be many peoples main attraction.
I'm sure there will be plenty! Can't wait!
but that's normal and I'm talking strictly about Japan here. I hope I can get my local store to import it early.
With few units people have to wait more time. That time in the waiting line is time that other developers don't get to show their stuff.
I will wait for special bundles to be announced and competing stores to put out deals and decide where to preorder. I don't see why there wouldn't be enough.
Really Kotaku? Grow up.
Quote: "How many [Vitas] were there? Eighty [80!]..." Oh please, of course. It was Sony's launch event. Of course not every developer had one to show. And how is 80 (!) a small number. Looks more like overwhelming demand to me. Spin, spin, spin...kotakooooh
really cant wait for vita.
god dam, they real know how to make a story out of something silly on Kotaku.........lol
Does anyone know WHY kotaku hates Sony soo much ??
They probrably ask themselves Why Does Microsoft Keep Giving us Suitcases full of Money, ?!!;]
Something about revealing Home for PS3 before it was officially announced, and now Kotaku is blacklisted. So now they do things like make fake videos of GT5, claiming the source of the video a fansite that never posted said video, to make anything Sony related look bad.
Does anyone still gives a click for Kotaku?
There will be more than enough, this thing is not going to sell fast right away, the first few months. I think it will sell very well after 8-10 months, but they are launching at a bad time and the hype machine is not running enough, after people start buying it and more and more games are out is will snowball and it will sell like CRAZY! I'm getting one Day One!
These things will be gone within the first few weeks as many will try to import it and others will try and sell it on ebay. And in some cases others will simply buy it to either show it off online or simply take it apart like they do all new systems and post it online. Trust me, these things will be hard to find the first month, I can already see a small drought taking place. And the tsunami (which struck a Sony factory by the way) isn't going to help matters. There be games left on shelves, but units I see flying off them shelves. Ofcourse there's also the prospect of competition and what Nintendo may throw out there, but in this cases I highly doubt an ip will affect a platforms launch. Most likely after its launch, just not during it. I can see it now, kaz signing and handing the first unit to the first buyer waiting in a long as line, just like before. No difference.
I'd rather say the reason why that is not available globally is because Sony can't produce them fast enough - at least for launch. Will be sold out on at launch, no doubt about it.
I just hope it lives up to expectations. I honestly am quite excited for this.
This thing is gonna sell MILLIONS maybe 10 million first week
lol I think there is a /s missing ;) No console sold 10M in a week. LOL. But if they sell that in the first year that would be a tremendous success.
" they simply underestimated demand (unlikely), they kept numbers small to keep demand at fever-pitch (reasonable) or, as I think is most likely, they just didn't have enough of the things to go around." Why is underestimating demand unlikely? They had 80 freaking units. It sounds more like he's being a crybaby because he had to wait in a line. How pretentious can you be?
Is there not enough blood in your brain to go around?
