    I like how they avoid saying if they'll make a profit.
    Just that they won't have a deficit.

    Gogo breaking even~

    Color me shocked, I was under the impression this thing was gonna cost them. At least software will be cheaper and the chances of a price cut are higher.

    I don't think it'll beat the 3DS since their base is too dedicated but this shit's gonna cut it close.

    To be fair, they said that hardware development isn't 100% complete yet. It could just be the fact that the profit won't be that high, or they just don't want to give a final number before they have it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the vita's using modded ps3 processors at a smaller nano-meter. Mass production of already in use tech, will only cause the price for parts to drop in time.

    Very surprised at that, I thought they would be losing almost as much as they did with the PS3.

    I bet the parts don't make up $250, but the workmanship does. [​IMG]
