Sony lays off 10k, Vita sells only 125k units in March, price drop looming

21 replies 30 views Edited Apr 14, 2012

Sales dropping weekly.  Sony's quarter going down faster than RadioShacks and Best Buys combined(which is saying something).

The price drop is coming the "analysts" say.  As they should.  This thing is bombing right now.  The lack of games, and all the issues, and lack of apps' is killing the Vita right now...

You should have posted some legit proof like a link or a video... but yeah, I myself expect the sales would be going down given the issues and the "should-have-been-there-but-isn't's" as of now . Sony will find a way

I think that vita sales would probably increase if they were to simply lower the price of their memory cards. The machine itself is a fair enough price but if they lower the price of the accesories and games on the PSN store, I think they'll see better sales.

I read that recently Sony sold less than 10K Vitas in Japan last week, but all the consoles have had a simular slump. The PSP is still selling better in Japan however.

Hopefully Sony will drop the price of the Wifi Vita to $199 this year, and they certainly can afford to do so since it was revealed by one source that they estimate that it costs Sony $160 to manufacture...

The cut wasnt because of the vita. Kaz Himself said it was the TV media and shits . The OP is a troll.

Lol lets ignore the fact the layoffs had NOTHING to do with Vita, or even the PS brand or their gaming division.

I havent heard any "analysts" or read anywhere about a price drop, a link would be nice next time.

If your going to only posts numbers (as you usually do) atleast provide links and stuff for people that don't read gaming news as much as you seem to do.

This. Linking Sony's layoffs to the Vita ain't nuthin' but trolling.
