Predict Vita sales in japan after 28th Feb Price Drop

Approximately 50k-60k.

As others already mentioned, a price reduction is nice, however the memory cards need to be lowered. The unit itself(non bundle) should come with a 4gb or 8gb card. That is a hidden cost that shouldn't exist.

At least they're making a Japanese bundle where you get a Vita + 32GB memory card for "$250". That's definitely a step in the right direction.

yeah they only sold 4 plus million, and I bet the first week sales are gonna surge as there must be at least 4 million people waiting for the price drop from all the post's I read on the different boards.


First they scream Vita needs a price drop, Sony drops price

Now its Vita needs more games.


If Sony had jumped and done a price drop early like Nintendo, it would have been a lot more effective. The price was the main talking point 6 months in because it was too soon to have a good clear idea of its library. Now we've gone a year and the library has taken centre stage in discussions with its overall slim pickings and lacklustre performance of big titles.

So if Nintendo changed the name of the Wii - U, would they be pulling a U-Wii?

Yes, though most people probably agree that should have been the price point from the start.

I picked >10k, because it includes all of the other options, and so I'm guaranteed to be correct.

I think it'll sell more than 100k but I'm optimistic.

Doh put 20K but forgot PSO2 and Senran is released the 28th... Hmmm I think 40K - 50K might be possible, but I think it will be stable for bit with the release of SS the week after.

Now a better question, anyone wanna predict the sales of the Vita before the price drop date lol.
