GameStop's PlayStation Vita Promotion A Smart Idea

Chris Buffa (Modojo): It's easy to interpret GameStop's current PlayStation Vita promotion (buy two first party games, get one free) as a sign of weakness on Sony's part. After all, if Vita's games are so desirable, why give them away? It would seem GameStop doesn't feel it can move the software and even the hardware.

The story is too old to be commented.

Why compare 2 different systems from a different point in time?

"Say what you will about Sony's top brass, but these guys know PSP came up short against DS."

Perhaps but also remember how PS1 did against n64 or PS2 and gamecube. I'm not taking away anything from Nintendo, I love both Ninty/Sony games but these are different systems here. PSV is addressing all PSP's mistakes from what I've seen. You never know what the future may bring.

Oddly enough besides Radiant Historia, Dragon Quest and Mario Kart I rarely used my DS compared to my PSP. I preferred the Game Boy Advance much more to the DS tbh.

I still play my GBA SP more than my DSiXL to this very day. I poured countless hours into multiple Monster Hunter titles on my PSP.

I know what you mean. Despite people going on and on about how great the DS was I never had much use for it. I am not even sure where it is right now.

@ fluffydelusions. Ignore Chris. All he does is constantly diss the VITA and try to raise up the 3DS. He is a notorious 3DS lover and has been bias against the VITA from the get go.

Ok Chris, you hate Vita, we get it. But you're wrong. It's not a "sign of weakness" it's a marketing tactic. Most people would have only bought 1 game at launch. But since its buy 2 get 1 free, THIS WILL ACTUALLY INCREASE SOFTWARE SALES AT LAUNCH. The free games given away are still being paid for by Gamestop.

Man shut your mouth cry baby. I'm happy Sony doing something for there gamer's.

tarbis2120d ago

Why is this idiot thinking it's a weakness from Sony. It's a promotion by GameStop only.

Hicken2120d ago

And it's not even a GameStop-only thing. But Buffa is intent on making the Vita look as bad as possible.

And Hicken is intent on trollijg at every turn. Whilst never adding a damn thing intelligent to any discussion.

Good job kid!
