The numbers from Japan have me worried that this is going to be another PSP Go or there will be a price drop in the coming months after it is released here in the States. Now that the dismal Vita sales numbers are reaching non-gaming magazines (e.g. Forbes), there is no reason for me to rush out and buy this day one since the Vita's first releases are reaching the non-gaming press and out to a wider audience. I will wait at least a year before buying my own to see where this is heading. I am definitely canceling my preorder.
Edit: Besides, I have absolutely zero interest in any of the launch games. So this is a good decision on my part. :)
Yeah, I was going to pick one up at launch too, but the high price + the cost of memory cards put me on the fence.
None of the launch titles are appealing to me, and the fact that it's selling so poorly in JP right now isn't a good sign.. If it sells poorly here too, then we can pretty much guarantee a price drop in a few months..
If there's no price drop after 6mo, and Lord of Apocalypse/Ragnarok Odyssey come out though, I'll bite the bullet.
Does it scare anybody else that the only metric Americans know, has to do with weapons? -Rampagingwalrus
I have a feeling that the price will drop within months, or they'll create a super-bundle that comes with games and a mem stick. A few more horrendous weeks in Japan and we may get some sort of deal at launch in the West.
I love how the trolls keep falling back on Japan's sales as if they actually matter. Japan's gaming market is drastically different than our own. The 360 and PS3 are failures there...oh hey, look at that, they're successful here. Here's a hint for all these trolls bombarding the forums.....wait until it actually gets released world wide.
