because obviously no one was wanting them as much as the Wii U. The Vita is practically dead now anyway.
I will agree though that it's still sort of bull, especially holding a midnight release for a game but not a brand new console.
At the same time... Damn. They might actually have a good point, with the demand so high and as crazy as some people are these days, whether they want to play the system or sell for $$$ for who knows what.
I'll still be there to get mine when the doors open though.
