Sony is being VERY smart with the Vita this week. This could turn things around.

They announce Kat as DLC for All-Stars which naturally made PS3 All-Stars players curious about her origin. All-Stars came out this week with PS3 cross play and the Vita version is free with purchase of the PS3 version AND they made her game, Gravity Rush, a free PS + download. At the same time they have these insane bundles with free PS + trials. At the same time they bring PS + to the Vita and offer amazing free stuff such as Uncharted: Golden Abyss to make people want to expand their Vita collection and become a full fledged player.

I am an example of a customer who had no real plans to get a Vita until this sequence of events happened. And now I feel like this is the best purchase i've ever made and am hopelessly addicted to my Vita.

Hopefully there are a lot more like me so this system can get the success it deserves.

Yea they should throw in some more free games plus some 16gb memory cards. Oh and 1 years of free PS+ would be nice too. That will definitely move alot of Vita.

You cannot penetrate an IMO shield no matter how stupid it sounds.

the thing is...

this handheld isnt doing bad at all and if you're gonna let internet forums decide for you, then fine... yeah... the vita's looking pretty damn bad for most people, but let's face it... this thing is sweet if you're a real gamer.

i have 10 vita games all of which I love (especially the MGS HD and Disgaea port) I've downloaded my favorite PSP games (which kick ass) and I've downloaded Xenogears, Parasite Eve and my favorite FF games onto this portable.

now due to all the backlash on the world wide web sony even went the extra mile and gives us a bunch of awesome free games via PS+ (the best part is the only one I didn't own was Gravity Rush) not that long after rushing PSX support for us.

i've had my 3DS since launch, i'm an ambassador and if i said i've played the damn thing for over 100 hours i'd be lying. it's not that i don't like it, it's that i'm not that into generic low quality games.

truth spoken.

One does not simply state a negative opinion on GameFAQS without being called a troll.

Its not just forums, every tech website i goto starts off talking about poor vita sales with any story involving a vita. I bought one anyway, because i can afford to take a chance. This sale will be a nice boost for the Vita, hopefully Sony can keep the momentum going

This is how I feel, I don't lie about how I feel so don't try to change my mind, you can still live a long and fruitful life even if you don't like what I say.
#6HeartsnatcherPosted 11/23/2012 11:01:13 PM
try non-biased gamer then, cause i love all sorts of games except the low budget cash-in stuff.

take your stab.
#7Shadowfxd2Posted 11/23/2012 11:05:25 PM
As a Vita owner, I hope that Vita takes off from here. Hopefully these sales will show devs that there is a audience for the Vita. Then we need some game announcements and some support. Then I can't wait to get excited about the Vita. Until then, back to my other systems...

Sorry, that's where I had to stop because this post was so stupid. I love the Vita dude, but this is ridiculous. You can't actually think that. It's not possible.

We will see what exactly sold this week, in next months NPD. I think it could be surprising. If not, then I'm going to bury my Vita in my socks drawer and never admit I bought one at launch...
