Starting tomorrow, the price of the PS Vita will be dropped to $199. The memory cards are also cut down significantly.

I like the memory card price drop, been thinking of increasing the memory to 16GB, may go for a 32GB now.

Hmmm dunno I allways liked the PSP but it is not worth it for me as I do not play sport games or most other stuff for PSP and PSV ... I would only concider it if there would be cracks / jailbreak / cfw whatever you call it available so I could get the few interesting EU games and all the Japanese stuff ^^

Isn't the Vita region free? I'm pretty sure it is.


Anywho going to wait for the 6.3 inch vita with 1GB ram that was rumored to be released later on this year.

It's significant to them as it mean they may or may not see a profit being made on them.
Well, the memory cards are pretty much all profit. They're pennies to manufacture. They're price is pretty dependent on how much of a loss they're taking on the Vita itself. The Vita is getting a steep price drop, so it isn't surprising to see that the memory cards aren't taking as large of one. Everybody has to consider though: if they dropped memory card prices by 60%, but only dropped the Vita by $50, people would still be saying that both the Vita and the memory cards cost too much. By dropping the Vita to $200, the price is much more appealing than it was at $300, and with the dropped memory card prices, any holdouts that were being influenced by the price could be swayed.

Now, I don't think this will boost sales significantly. This is a price drop that came too late into the Vita's life to have a significant impact (unlike the 3DS price drop that happened ridiculously early). It should help though.

    From what I've heard about the Expansion Pack, the emulator used has some noticeable input delay and/or lag...would BLJs even be possible?

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Apparently Nintendo adapted the 3D All-Stars emulator, instead of their old Virtual Console emulator - or, if nothing else, copying what fans have done.

    from what i can seem to gather there's some issues but nothing dramatic enough to severely impact what you're playing

    Start a new thread in the 3DS board, the chat box is not the best place to ask for such advice.

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.

  • E1ite007 @ E1ite007:
    For some reason, some Amazon reviews said it was a scam 'cause it launch there before they made an official launch on their webpage...anyway, according to people, it's good...it was gonna be my first option to buy when I wanted something to farm in games automatically, but then I backed down since tax fees and shipping would have costed me a fortune to Mexico...
