Family in a position to know. Verified by the press release a few days back. Even cowboom is dumping them at $109. In a nutshell vita= failure. Millions of units collecting dust. They are looking at core $150 and bundles $179- $199. Redesigns are in the works negating the use of the proprietary memory cards along with an entire new marketing campaign and moe aaa titles.
I just confirmed the redesign for myself last night to be sure.
Interesting. I got one during BF and gifted the bundle to my nephew. I really want a new one now and the prices don't impress me.
