    With the ammount of vita games still being released in Japan safe bet to say there will probably be over 100 games released. We dont know what limited print companies have planned we still dont know how many games limited run or other limited print companies have no released yet. Also who is to say that playasia wont pick up the slack once no one else is releasing limited print games. Chances are the vita will still last another good year or 2 in Japan chances are from now till then there is probably gonna be at least 100 vita games released.

    I would love that 1 000 numbers :D

    We need 60-70 new announcements in the future to secure that target if LRG, SLG, Play Asia could secure 25 that would help a lot

    Still things isn't looking good in Japan :
    • January 2018 : 6
    • February 2018 : 8
    • March 2018 : 15
    • April 2018 : 7
    • May 2018 : 7
    • June 2018 : 4
    • July 2018 : 4
    • August 2018 : 4
    • September 2018 : 2
    • Summer 2018 : 3
    • ??? 2018 : 2
    • Total : 62 (including Darkest Dungeon & Undertale)
    Now i expect new announcements for the end of 2018 but frankly i will be surprised if we reach the 80+ releases in Japan for 2018.

    More then likely just look at psp it died long before they stopped support in Japan. It was like 3 year or long after it was basically dead outside Japan. Granted I'd expect something similar to what happened then they will ptobprob do duel switch/vita game/vita games for all vns the fact is they still well enough in Japan. We also have well I to 2019 where i don't see japan slwoing down with releases because if it was had as it is outside japan wouldnt it make sense to shutdown the Asian factory's as well. I think that good enough indication that they will releases more then enough to make it worth while and reach that 1000 mark. Also it's worth noting unlike most visual novels don't get announced very far in advance and I expect more to be realised as at the tale end that's all that was being released on psps end.

    Not really saddened by the news. The system has had a good life span and in terms of ports I prefer going after the Switch/PS4 versions these days. I should still be able to hit 500 physical releases by the end of the year (or there abouts) and those will last me a good long while to finish!

    What do they mean with "speculations", Sony confirmed this! LRG can be so f-ing annoying sometimes. Just answer the questions like normal people, don't pretend to be some bigshots.

    Well i don't feel much affected by this announcement or so

    Yesterday :
    • 6.30am => Grabbed a copy of Psychedelica Of The Black Butterfly (NA)
    • 12.00am => Grabbed a copy of Doukoku Soshite... (JA) because it was -30%
    • 12.02am => Grabbed a copy of GALTIA V Edition (JA) because it was -30%
    • 12.05am => Passed on a copy of Tengai ni Mau, Iki na Hana Limited Edition (JA) because even at -30% i feel that it's still a bit expensive
    • 5.00pm => Grabbed a copy of Reverie Limited Edition (AS-E)
    This morning => My god, i overdid again T-T

    For a system they gave up on in 2013 I can live with 2020 kill date. We kept it alive more than sony.

    If it's really being killed I ask for 3 sony wish's.

    1. When in 2020? Could you narrow down those 365 days please.

    2. Really couldn't keep factory open in east and west until this time.

    3. For the love of everything holy. Who in sony do I need seduce or sleep with. Can you please make the Vita and PSTV hard cable connect to share saves.

    So tired of fact I have to bring a 3rd machine and 15 mins, when I know it could become a simple plug and play solution.
