Wow Persona 4 is making even GS 199.99 VITA sales, saw it with own eyes

#1JoeydollazPosted 3/14/2013 10:12:27 AM
I saw packs of people buying the 199.99 VITA at gamestop, after they found out this GS only selling the 299.99 ps+ bundle and they told them it was going to be 345 dollars with no
card games or good enough mem card.

So they got a 199.99 Vita with said Persona 4 game for like 255, guess that game is making people buy Vita.

I also think gamestop is selling more refurbished Vita's than Sony is selling new Vita,
which at this point they are both the same.

Used Vita sales are not good for Sony

They are if the people end up buying tons of software.

Yeah, the money is on software, and products like PS+, right? So while Sony doesn't love it, I am sure they are still fine with it.

Exactly. That initial hardware sale is great, but the continuous sale of games and accessories down the road play a huge role.

Under the assumption that Sony makes zero dollars off hardware, it actually benefits them that you buy it used because they don't have to offer warranty or do the logistics. Naturally they'd be happier if everyone kept their Vita and bought tons of games for it though.

Hmm wouldn't used system buyers also buy used games though?

Sony will still **** them on the memory cards, don't worry.

Bull!

They are making a fortune off digital software

Think Again

Better to have Vita's in people's hands than sitting on store shelves

Yeah theres that too....but if they dont have a Vita at all, the chances of them getting a new game are 0%. At least with a used Vita, there is that chance they will buy a new game eventually...those cheap bastards.
