Almost everything is made in China these days.

yeah almost everything, PS3 is made from china and the Xbox 360.
The only reason is cheap labor thus less manufacturing costs.

Soo Many Accessories

I was just checking out the prices for some of the accessories. Aside from memory cards, Sony really nailed the pricing on these.

Ear buds and assorted cases and pouches are $20, screen protector (two pack) is $15, car adapter is $18 and a game card carrying case is $10. That's not too bad when you compare them to tablet accessories.


You can buy the official Vita starter kit that gets you a carrying pouch, screen protectors, ear buds, car adapter and a card carrying case for $29.99.

DEFINITELY picking that up on the 15th. Saving a lot of money on stuff I'll probably be getting eventually anyways.

Is there an issue with it been made in China?

Also they had to shut down some factories for the earthquake which could be why but i don't see why it matters.

If everything that's made in China sucks. Then the 3DS sucks because it's made there.

It's all down to how much money companies want to spend on quality control. Just look at what happened to the 360 in the beginning and compare it to the PS3.
