also, could I get a link to that article? If it was before Nov. 20th, I would take everything it says with a grain of salt.. before Black Friday the VITA was looking like it was dead in the water.. after Black Friday, it has surpassed every single goal they wanted.. just sayin'. The reason I think we are just NOW getting PSO news, is because Sega was waiting to see what the console sales looked like over the holidays before jumping on-board.
also.. I'm half expecting a Monster Hunter to be announce SOMETIME, and they are now going to release HD versions of the Tales games on the VITA as well, both of which are HUGE console sellers.
P.S: October was the month Japan broke 1mil sales, after Persona came out, huge sales in Japan.. Dec. for North America, the bundle sales were incredible in NA over the holiday.
