PS3 is 6 year sold, Vita is barely 1, you think Vita is not gonna have something similar in like 4-5 years?


Considering it will only take a year or two to be discontinued, no I don't think it will have something similar.


bye bye.

I would buy that soul sacrifice bundle instantly but that kind pricing would only give major losses for Sony.

Wouldn't that also be guaranteeing Sony to lose money..?

PS+, Software sales, accessories, increased install base, increased consumer confidence, yadda yadda.

Don't think it'd work in Sony's case. They don't have quite the hard hitting library to get people buying so they recoup their losses.

If we buy into Sony's "long term" plan, then it wouldn't really matter..

Bigger install base (due to OMFG YOU CAN'T BEAT THIS DEAL!) prices; therefore developers have an increased profit margin and the risk is reduced significantly. People will buy Vita's and hold onto them while they wait for games to come out. (It would also help if Sony marketed the Vita as a mini gaming tablet among certain circles; image is everything and changing what you label it would increase sales. Trust me on this)

So we'd get the developers saying "Ok, they have a lot of people buying Vitas, so lets make games!" --> more people buying crazy bundles --> more games.. Over time the hardware cost goes down and the loss is cut, yet profits go up; meanwhile, during the wait, you have small niche developers (XSEED, ATLUS, NISA) making games. Due to the limited selection, you get more people trying more games. You start building fans of franchises that weren't there before, thus building up a larger audience for those kinds of games. (EX: someone who only plays call of duty buying a game like Persona, and finding out they love JRPGs and dating sims)

That price still seems high IMO. It should be like $250 for that, considering that those compilations on their own are fairly cheap.


You likely can't fit a 500GB HD for that price, but 500 GB is super overkill anyway. 120GB would have been more than enough.

So, the Assassin's Creed bundle is $300 and includes the game and a 30 day + subscription.. Which means you're paying an extra 50 bucks to have it in red and get GoW Saga which sells for $40, essentially paying 10 bucks for the red color. I just wish it actually looked like a GoW limited edition system instead of just..."red".. That's what I like about the Xbox LE systems because they're actually designed to look like Gears of War, Halo, Modern Warfare, Star Wars, etc.

Either way, I'm in the market for a new PS3 and I plan on getting the new GoW anyways. I'll have my eyes on this!

Maybe they should've included the red Vita and both PSP GoWs for download and sold it at $500.


Actually the assassins creed bundle MSRP is $249.99

I mostly listen to crazy bands no-one ever heard of. I do enjoy a few popular bands. Mostly Green Day and Weird Al.

The 3DS and PSVita are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.
