I came across this article while searching for the tales of xillia release date

http://gengame.net/2013/04/tales-games-on-vita-not-slated-for-us-release-due-to-relatively-poor-sales/

Speaking with Kotaku, Tales director and producer Hideo Baba revealed that there are no plans for the Vita exclusive games to see the light of day outside of Japan, and poor sales in the US are the reason.

Unfortunately, at this present time we donít have any plans to release any of the Vita titles. One of the main reasons is, unfortunately the PlayStation Vita is doing relatively poorly in North America, so itís one of those things that if the numbers increased considerably, then itís something we could consider.

They have a history of stuff like this. This gave them an easier way of not doing work.

I thought sales didn't matter, though.

There are four viewpoints

Viewpoint 1 is that the article assumptions are wrong with regards to vita popularity

Viewpoint 2 is that the article is right, but things will change

Viewpoint 3 is that the article is right, but things won't change, but you do not care anyway

Viewpoint 3 is that the article is right, but things won't change, and you regret previous purchasing decisions because of it
