Sony Japan Braces for Vita's Biggest Month

Posted by Sammy Barker

Persona leading the charge

It’s no secret that PlayStation Vita has been having a torrid time in Japan of late, but Sony is optimistic about the platform’s fortunes heading into June.

Retailers around the country are anticipating strong sales for the upcoming Persona 4: The Golden and the Vita version of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.

In addition to the high profile releases, Sony is also set to release the crystal white variation of the Vita hardware in Japan on 28th June.

SCEJ CEO Hiroshi Kawano said in an interview with Famitsu magazine this week that Vita’s “true fight begins now”. He said that the system’s June line-up is seeing a strong consumer reaction, and that Sony is putting a considerable promotional effort into the offering.

We’re not expecting the Vita’s fortunes to change dramatically during June, but it would be nice to see a little more enthusiasm in the device overseas.

The more Atlus and Square Enix games for the Vita, the more sales in Japan.

LOL just joking,the price is just rite for me,the only problem i had is rpgs,bring on skyrim and dragon quest!!!




The MGS HD collection should do it proud. I think it's Bluepoint doing the conversions/remastering- and they're very good at it from what I've read elsewhere. Just hope they're doing Z.O.E HD Collection too. That can't come out soon enough for me . . .
