49 replies 26 views Edited Jan 19, 2012

i currently have mine pre-ordered through amazon but i am starting to get concerned about the horrible sales in japan.  i just don't want to buy it day one and have sony decide to slash the price.  just curious if anyone has thought about it.

japan sales mean nothing at all they are western games western games do not sell that well in japan. (just like asian like games do not sell that well as they do in japan.)

Not really because the Vita is already priced lower than it should be. If Sony lowers the price then its because people just really don't want to buy the Vita.

thanks for the links.  i'm probably thinking about that other compnay and their response to sluggish sales and just don't want to get burned like my friends did.  i know japanese sales don't mean much but at the same time you know sony is concerned about it only selling 18,000 units last week.  great point about the launch lineup.  also, one of my other concerns is some of the comments in the links you provided.  quite a few people don't like the price point.  thanks again.  hadn't seen that youtube before and really enjoyed it.

also what that other company did as well they waited 6/5 months before a price drop even happened.

thanks for the reply.  so far i got 3 no responses so that's cool.  my neighbor and i were discussing the vita and it's something he brought up and i had never thought about it.  was just curious to see what other people thought.
