Is something bad about to happen to the Vita storefront?

 

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been cancelled for the platform and part of the reason is the ending of Vita cartridge production, but also unspecified discontinuances of some aspects of the Playstation Store (I'm paraphrasing what Igarashi said in the translated captioning on the video that was released the other day, but the gist of it was what I said). 

 

I was only aware of the freebies for Playstation Plus subscribers were going to switch to all PS4 content next year, which hardly seems reason to not release a few Vita game digitally on the Playstation Store. Is something more happening?

Side note:  Play Asia has the English release of Resident Evil Revelations 2 on cart for Vita if anyone is interested. Grabbed it recently and am very happy with it!

Dont get me started on the Bloodstained bs. Someone noticed a year ago that the dev team porting the game took it off their profile. Thus indicating that the Bloodstained team strung us along for atleast that long. Im trying to get a full refund. Atleast we got the 8bit game which is going to be better anyways.

Anyone have any idea how much a used OLED Vita might go for in Japan these days?

I know a bit of a random question. But I'm making a trip over there next month and after reading this thread I'm thinking of picking up a replacement for my ever so slightly scratched up OLED model, if they're cheap enough.

Also, they're region free, right?

If you are going over, check how much the memory cards are? Hopefully cheaper than ebay.

Have you guys been paying attention to the price of the Playstation TV on auction sites? Good grief, when did these get so expensive? They went from paperweights to priceless heirlooms in just a couple of years! I think Sony might have its own Virtual Boy at this rate.

I noticed a few days ago and was shocked by how much they went up in price. They went from $20 to well over a $100. It must be from new recent hacks

Here's a quick question (?) : anyone know the model # I should be looking for if I want a Japanese OLED Vita? I'm assuming anything that's a 1K series?

I think gamers are finally becoming aware of what the PS-TV is.  It was so poorly promoted that I didn't know it even existed, and even then I thought it was some kind of Netflix box for Sony's video service.  I had no idea it was a game box until after I had purchased a PS Vita.  Then even if one does realize the PS-TV is a Vita system, the Vita had a long reputation for games being cack.  

 

But once you realize that the library is so much better than anyone gives it credit for, and the system lets you play Vita, PSP, and PS1 games on your TV with a tiny footprint then it starts showing it's worth quickly.  It's also worth noting that it's a tremendous RPG system, a genre well known for fans who aren't shy about throwing money around.  And all this is before someone hacks it.

 

It's a fantastic box.  I had always intended to get another or two, but now I guess I'm too late.
