Ugghh...Just realized my Odin Sphere for Vita did not ship from Amazon. I had to cancel my Credit Card I used on that order and forgot. I hope I still get the artbook pre-order bonus. 


In Topic: Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero (PS4, Vita & Wii U) - $29.99 at Gamestop, Ama...

Sounds like a Shovel Knight situation for the XBox one physical version.  Microsoft wanted them to print more copies then the publisher actually wanted to print hence the physical version was scrapped (I'm referring to Shovel Knight.  I'm sure Xseed didn't even try for Shantae).

Yea, from my understanding Microsoft requires much larger print runs than either Sony or Nintendo. At least that's what LRG and a few other Publishers have stated. I also think the PS4, Vita, and Wii U are better target audiences for this specific game.

N64 is as hot as any Retro system. I'm guessing they are trying to get in on the madness.

I have over 75 N64 games and over 60 CiB. They have increased tremendously in price recently and continue to gain more and more steam. I can't see it slowing down any time soon either.

It's all about the 3rd Party Support.


Pretty much. I mean sure it may be harder to find new Vitas at retail but there should be plenty of used ones and Japn should continue getting new Vita HW for a while.

As far as software we'll continue seeing 3rd party releases here for a while since there isn't a replacement from Sony.

This came up on Reddit today. Someone claiming to be a distributor working with Sony said North American Vita hardware, accessories, and First Party game restocks were discontinued with all Purchase Orders being cancelled. 

 

Due to tomorrow being April 1st, people thought it was an April fools joke and he deleted the posting (even after sending proof to moderators.) Prior to that posting he had been talking about Walmart stocking issues with things that only people with insider knowledge would know (overselling, warehouses used to fulfill stock.) He's also still around answering questions for people.

 

TL/DR anything Vita related that's not the latest anime boob game or JRPG will be vanishing from shelves soon.

That doesn't seem like anything different than what we have now. Most retailers have cleared out the majority oftheir stock and the retailers themselves have no intention of ordering more, outside of possibly Amazon and Gamestop and those two likely weren't itching to re-order first party games from 2+ years ago.

 

I guess what I'm saying is we've seen this coming for a while and I don't see this changing much.
