 Well No one know if it working or not ,  I dont  know the  books of sony finances and spents and etc etc., and we may  never know  them, its not very important btw.. but i know the vita has picked up sales and is selling out just about everywhere. the  memeory card where dropped in priced and sold out  very quickly on a  limted sale.. I think the  marketing /sales team see all and know this.  Things  will get better, for them in this  area.If they feel they can  get  80-150% more revenue with that  a price drop range  they will  do so also if  it cover all  ends of expenses they may have.  They will try to do that  its their job  to find a way to maximize revenue. i cant say  they will or should, i dont the  know the book of sony nor do i have enough  liqour in my cabniets  and time to be  reading finance book of them. Im just fan like  everyone else, i care about there games and entertainment not the finance books.

 

 In house is the  best way to  go in buisness though. Its not forcing anyone to buy  your  brand,   america is free market.  You  can only get a  new ford  from a ford dealer as well as the parts, a new  2013 benz  from a  benz dealer as well as the parts  and they will be  very  expensive!!..  , its not  forcing anyone to buy or nickling and diming folks.. its the best way to control  revenue and protection of the brand and   product to the comsumer.  It may seem that way ( evil and greedy)  but  big  buisness mean big revenue to stay afloat,

 

 Like  said before 90 -100%  of  all buisness dream to  do in house for there brands. Its  the hardest way  but the best way. No one want a  buisness  to be owned by the bank for 80 Yrs. You cant really profit like that or expand.. Your ideas  are not yours  when owned by a  bunch of suits and banks. If  you  ever get into buisness and into  pushing  your own product line., you'll  look back see  what im saying.

 

 You wont be nickling a diming  any one either when set your prices. Im not trying to  justify  what sony do, they can do much better, trail and error listening to customers  make for great  success not  telling and arrogance & (pride) ego. what sont is  doing  right now with psn   no- one  is doing.  I mean no one is  doing it.

 

 You  can scroll every  buisness 500 in tech and  none of them are doing  what sony is doing for it customers,  they listen and build . I have to give credit where it due.  nintendo not doing  nor is  xbox  nor is  apple.

 

 


Jesus, man. That was like 45% gibberish. Proof read for Christ's sake. Use a dictionary or something. The only thing I was really able to gather from this is that you're a Sony fanboy and they can do no wrong in your eyes. I know no other company is doing what they're doing, not Apple nor Microsoft. That's probably why all of those companies are doing so much better than Sony. Apple is the most profitable company in history as of last fall and Microsoft currently has the best selling console of this generation.

Re: Sony is listening, Vita Memory Card prices are beginning to drop

Jan 1, 2013
So angry that not only did I miss this, but I purchased a 32 gb for $80 earlier this month.

I would have bought 10 Cards, kept 2, and sold the rest on ebay or amazon, like I'm sure some one else probably did.

I know you dropped out of school in the second grade to become a West Virginian coal miner and as a result reading and spelling aren't your strong suits, but try really hard for me. I said Microsoft CURRENTLY has the best selling console of this generation. As in Nintendo abandoned their fans to cater to little kids and old people. And their foray into the world of casual gaming has turned out to be an endeavor of EXTREMELY limited returns. The Wii sold like crazy for a while, but none of the casuals were buying any games once they got sick of Wii Sports. So no one is buying any more Wiis and now Microsoft has had the best selling console for 20 straight months as of last September. Also *everyone *consoles *you're *can't *poor. Christ, man. You had all those spelling errors in 2 sentences. You're embarrassing yourself with those pictures. I really hope you're 8 years old.

Well I wouldn't say no one is buying the Wii.

It still sells better than the Vita.

And are spelling mistakes really THAT important on an internet forum? Considering you corrected him, you obviously got what he was trying to say anyway, and the important thing in writing is to get your point across.

This isn't school. This isn't a formal place. It's a casual gaming forum.

My friend who works for a Sony retailer got his 32 at like $20 and he is getting me one that price as well. Like I said the mark up on these things is **bleep**.

Well, yeah it sells better than the Vita...but that's a low bar. Everything sells better than the Vita. And it's even less now that the Wii U is out. And I'm aware that this is kind of an informal setting but like 30 percent of all of his previous posts made no sense. It's one thing to use the wrong "your're" or "its" and not capitalize but he was leaving words out of sentences to the point where I couldn't figure out what he was saying, and insulting me while doing it.
