How come Sony isn't bothering to port the crazy number of awesome games Japan is getting for the Vita to us?

Some of them it's down right embarrassing when they already HAVE English versions and we're not getting them. (such as PSO2 and Pirate Warriors 2).

Sony please TAKE SOME LARGE CHUNKS of money and pay the companies to give your LARGEST market of Vita buyers GAMES! ~_~

Because Sony aren't the ones who control everything that gets ported...?

Actually you're wrong. If a cheap small little company like Xseed can get games over here Sony could to. Sony could easily get every single good Vita game over here with just $250,000 or so. Remember they make huge big budget games at a cost of 30+ million! So a ton of great games for a tiny microscopic fraction of what they usually pay.

It would also help drive up sales for the Vita. In the only region people actually want it in.

Sony controls their own games but not 3rd party games.

Do you have a source to back that claim up? Cause if you do my mind will be blown.

Console sales =\= software sales. With that being said, the sales numbers on normal weeks arent that different.

With that being said, any company can be moneyhatted. There is always a price. The only question is if that price is worth it.

While this is true, they could be like Nintendo and Publish the games here in the States if the 3rd party companies were willing. As an example I point out the Dragon Quest series on the DS.

They can't afford to publish every single game in every region, especially when it's not guaranteed to sell loads.

e.g how many people screamed that Sony should make a Smash style game? How many bought it?

How many people demanded that Modnations was a misstep and it should have been LBP karting not Modnations? How many bought it?
