    well it might get sales of overpriced memory cards going but i cant see buyers flocking to the vita.

    although i suppose any slight increase might help a little.

    btw did you see the numbers for animal crossing for this week? it totally sold out of 600k retail units and even download cards sold out in many places, e-store did another 200k units.


    Anyone who wants to add me feel free to do so

    Yeah I was reading that a few days ago about Animal Crossing, I expect a pretty big bump in 3DS numbers to go along with it but how much I am unsure of.

    800K sales in a week is not too shabby at all for a portable console. I wonder what the top selling Vita game has managed? or even what game is the top seller.

    On the whole Vita sales thing, I found an interesting article about it. It's about a month old but not much has changed since then. Pretty much covers everything, and has some nice quotes from Vita developers. A lot of them seem to be very worried about making anything for the Vita because the install base is so low. One company near the end of the article is worried that they will go bankrupt....

    You might have read it, if not than read it very informative and a lot of information straight from the horses mouth so to speak.

    again with over priced cards, i guess youve not seen them lately, prices have dropped, but i guess you cant see this, so will switch to hating because sony have used a new media format (not widely available) with DRM protection, which even devs claimed to be a downfall of the psp and why they didnt want to invest too much money in producing top psp games.

    ps vita 4gb memory card (PREOWNED) £10 http://uk.webuy.com/product.php?sku=711719206620 at cex, i can buy a 32gb sd card for that price (a 16gb PREOWNED vita card is £32) so yes, it is overpriced.

    Not sure if I missed it while quickly scanning the Aritcle, but if I were a current PSN+ on the PS3.
    Could I carry that over to the Vita, or would I have to stomp up yet anouther PSN+ Account for the Vita as well?
