[UPDATED]PlayStation Vita hits about 6 million worldwide - Monday, August 26, 2013 7:54 AM ( #1 )
Hopefully the new price cut turns things around. This is an estimate though. 

UPDATE:
Japan: 1.9 million 
Europe: 1.9 million
North America: 1.6 million
Rest of World: about 0.6 million

Meh, I am hoping for this handheld to succeed. That price cut better get millions to buy who were on the edge wanting the price to drop a bit. 

Up 0.1 million from past week. :(  

 I want to see 7 million by end of year.

Numbers are going to ramp up with the recent price drop for sure, we've seen the same in Japan when they dropped the price around the time new games were launched there (like Soul Sacrifice, God Eater 2, Phantasy Star Online 2 and Toukiden), just a few days till Killzone Mercenary releases and Tearaway is shortly after will do the same for EU/USA aka the West.


They're pushing out deals overhere now as this one: PSVita + 8GB memcard + Killzone Mercenary for 199 Euro. Great competition for the 3DSXL at that same price.

Well have the foresight to be specific man, getting my hopes up by playing this back and forth to ruin a thread farther.

Still not interested in the Vita, also don't care about the Wiiu experience on PS4.  FFX on Vita could possibly sale me the system until then I am happy playing on my Smart Phone.

No buttons, no game. And those claiming that PSVita got no games simply are no gamers. Or just bad trolls, but well.





These deals are just great, game is 40 to 50 Euro, memcard is 25 Euro, so the PSVita itself costs around 125 to 135.

Mart you find really good deals, I actually think Vita has some great games I just don't really like the handheld experience. It probably came across that I am a Smart Phone gamer which is not the case Ill play cheap games at times just in general I am a TV/Monitor gamer. 

Why should I buy Killzone Vita when PS4 is going to have a Killzone game, both games have close release dates?

Well dude, I can name a 1000 reasons why one should own a PSVita, but lets go into this just one specific thing about the Killzone games and close in release.


First: I see people buy many, many shooters at the same time. COD, BF4, Killzone, you name 'em. Basically they buy the same anyways, its pew pew pew, and a story... Hardly there, but thats how I see it. What I don't get is why people buy into a yearly update on COD over and over again and just get some new thing added like a dog with an in ear speaker...


Only thing I can say about Killzone Mercenary is that it is feels more like Killzone 2 (the best of the 3 IMO) playing the beta. It is just fun to be able to play that game even when you're somewhere else aka not at home. It is a different storyline than Killzone Shadowfall too. It is months apart, KZM is next week or something, KZSF is the end of November. Why I am buying KZM is that the game feels good, visuals are really great, I use PSN on the go/multiplayer through 3G tethering on my smartphone or 3G MiFi and this shooter multiplayer is very addictive and fun. And maybe when I had my Killzone fix with this, I might even hold off buying Killzone SF till it drops in price to 20 or 30 bucks, who knows.

But hey, if you'd chose to play one Killzone, sure. Then just get another bundle out there for a PSVita, I saw one lately for USA with one year of PS+, Unit 13 and a memcard for 199 too. Just saying, that value in the bundle is very good. Even if one uses it to play KZ Shadow Fall through remote play on the toilet it is ;-)

No one can make the decision if something is worth it, but you. But for these prices, I can't understand why anyone that loves games and certainly if they love the Playstation platform (and owns a PS3 now, and will buy a PS4 soon too) to miss out on that missing mobile link and the free PSVita games on PS+. I really don't. Unless one truly hates handhelds for whatever reason smaller screen or not as comfortable as a normal controller. That last thing they made something for btw, this Nyko grip holder even incorporates an extra battery for much longer battery life, it costs around 25 USD or something.

True, white PSVita was looking good. AC game is pretty bad though, PS All Stars isn't balanced and maybe not supported anymore by Sony in the long run, where KZ Merc seems to be a game that is good quality and fun. I think that deal also just had a 4GB memstick, the KZM bundle has 8GB (still not that big, but better than the 4GB one which is pretty much useless).


But sure, Black Friday always has some extra discounts. Then again, thats at the end of November and this is now with KZM releasing :-)

I don't have a problem buying multiple shooters but I don't want to buy multiple games of the same Ip. I will get a Vita at some point just like with the Xbox One I am going to wait a while. 


Price was never really an issue when it came to owning a Vita, yeah the Vita memory card prices bothers me especially the over priced 32gb card. 


Do you think they are over priced? I sure do look at other 32gb flash cards that you can find for 20$-30$.

Yeah for sure, the memorycards are overpriced. Even now after the pricedrop.

Then again, 35 USD for 16GB (which is enough IMO, got one too), one pays it one time... I mean, people spend 50 or 60 on one single game, and do that many times a year and spend a lot of money. One time 35 bucks, and PS+ gives you an endless stream of PSVita games month after month.
So sure, overpriced, but many people make that a bigger problem than it is. I got that memcard for 35 at a launch discount too, 1.5 years ago, no need to upgrade to 32GB for me. If the 32GB card hits 40 Euro at a time, I might buy it just for the extra convenience, but until then I'm fine with this one.

There is a lot of people that put down the Vita it is to bad... it is a great little handheld... and with PSN plus it is a great...  tons of games...


the other thing I like about it is you will be able to stream PS4 games to it and there will be an app for the 2nd screen game play....

So you should be able to use it in games like Watch Dogs and the Division....

I agree, I love my vita. Really hoping my 32gb card comes before the estimated date or I will be going on holiday with only the 4gb which can hardly hold any of the PS plus games I have for it. I like the vita even more than the PS3 as it has a really fast and responsive UI that lets you just do what you want without taking forever.

Yeah I have a 16 and have about 15 to 18 games on it depending on size what not...  I would like a 32GB card as well but it is going to have to wait till after christmas... too many other priorities...  Just happy that they are cheaper now...
