Vita can't catch a break.

Huh? Vita got the game. This is like a Persona 4 golden to Persona 4. The Vita didn't take any sort of shot from this. It has already lived far longer than anyone predicted, but it's reaching the end of the line next year. End of the day, it lived about as long as the 3DS, wich for a sales failure was really good.

And it losts basically everything that once came to be an exclusive reason to own it. As I said, it can't catch a break.

Who honestly even cared about this game? It's an average JRPG. This game was never a reason to own a vita.
