My Fears Have Come True

#1dayj15Posted 12/6/2012 10:29:47 AM(edited)
About 15 minutes ago, I pulled out some Vitas that were on our (Target) Pre-Transition Merchandise pulls. I thought it was odd, but once I mentioned it to the Lead in Electronics, she replies "Oh yeah, they've been discontinued." I scanned the box, and indeed....Discontinued. This kind of makes me sad to see a wonderful creation get the axe due to different factors. I hope it was just the specific bundle, and not the entire SKU itself. I've had the system since launch and love it. Still, this also makes me wonder what games will not be completed or see no release date because of this. Anyone else have info?

*I have come to believe the reasoning behind the discontinuation is due to the system not selling well here. Thus Target has decided to halt the process of selling them. Stories of stores like The UK's equivalent to Wal-Mart has halted selling them as late as Sept.

Yeah I heard the same thing from my uncle that works at a plant that supplies parts for the Vita. They got a notice last week saying they were closing that line.

Luckily he was one of the few guys chosen to change out the tooling for the next line to be run there so he's not out of a job.


....<_<......>_>.....<_<.... yeah that's the ticket....
