In India its not surprising. Last year, I went to pick up the Vita & the Sony Store guy said it has been discontinued. He told me to buy the newer model called the PSP E1000. I laughed and told him the E1000 would likely be discontinued and tried to explain that the E1000 was a PSP with a few limitations. He was adamant, so I showed him a pic of the Vita on my phone. He said he was not aware of any such device. I left that Sony Store and drove 80 miles to the next Sony Store and got it. If Sony sales guys can't get it right why would AP. LOL :)

Part of the issue is that it looks so damn similar to the PSP at first glance that people would easily make the mistake. On the bus the other day a guy asked me if it was a PSP or Vita, he couldn't tell lol

The picture was misleading but the original article, that I actually read, was clear the PSP was being discontinued to focus on PSV.
