Thousands of eager gamers have flocked to the streets of Japan to lay down their PlayStation Vita pre-orders.
This is not a big deal for Japan. They do this to all new handhelds.
Play-Asia wont let me yet , ill spend $1000 happily mem stick uncharted LBP .... Goddamit i cant wait any other site where i can import it from Please im Eager please help me this thing is my most anticipated thing ever ... Help me or else i might just end up wasting my money on a 64 iphone 4s cause im itching for the future
Awwwww Pikajew is butthurt!
Your just mad they are not lining up to buy the next Nintendo handheld. Vita will be a hit in Japan no matter what you say or do. Deal with it. XperiaRay
And do you know why they are lined up? Because stores in Japan have sold out in pre orders. This is now the only way to get one in Japan. This thing is going to be a hit. I'm sure it will be the exact same everywhere else. This system is a beast!
Don`t they have internet over there to just pre-order? Lolz I just kidz.
They do but I think some of the major websites sold out of pre-orders for the Vita already. I'm pretty sure there was an article a couple days ago on it.
And all online retailers are sold out. Looks like the VITA will be coming out fighting strong in Japan. Sweet.
can't blame them
GOT mine pre-ordered and paid for along with uncharted GA and LBP vita. Im thinking of pre-ordering Ruin, gravity daze and Soundshapes as well....hmm, so many games to choose from.
And so it begins....a wave of new...i can also smell the scent of a brand new vita waiting to get unboxed.
line for Pre-Orders? Never heard of that before.
what's the initial shipment ?
I heard 500K.
I think its too low, Sony need to make more Vitas or its gonna be PS2 shortage all over again.
It's guaranteed to be a shortage. Hell I might sell mine if the ebay prices go high enough. That's if it's not hacked. If it is hacked early, I'm keeping the earliest firmware I can get my hands on.
I think they would make more if they could.. I certainly wish they would make more. That way I could maybe reserve one...
I wish I was in that line D:
The system is a born beast!
same thing happened to the ps3, when it came out. :O I joke I joke. Hope both the 3ds and Vita became extremely successful, hate Iphone gaming.
if i remember correct the same thing happened when the 3ds came out lets give it time before you fony fanboys talk about its successful or not lets see how its selling after a year in the market cause out of about 25 friends at work not one is interested in the vita its just you fony fans that think its great cause your to blind to see there ripping you off at that price with that battery life and those expensive memory cards etc lol and this is my opinion if you disagree its ok
And Nintendo didn't rip people off with the 3ds at 250 euros. At least with the vita at that same price we get near PS3 LEVEL graphics and battery life that matches the 3ds. Now that is a sweet deal and not a rip that you claim it to be. You just hate the vita because a ton of people are excited for it and it hurts you because it isn't a Nintendo handheld. It's ok just accept that Nintendo are not the only ones who make good handhelds and you will be fine. Also there's no reason to insult anyone just because your mad at vitas hype. XperiaRay
im kinda jelly of the japanese gamers now XD they get to own vita earlier than us :D
To 1st guy....try yesasia.....there pretty much like playasia, I have bought games from them before & had no problems. Why would anyone buy any other handheld over the vita.....this little machine is awesome looking, I have a PSP & it is a great little handheld (the best until Vita), so PSVita looks nuts the way it is running unchartered level of graphics on it's 1st gen lineup of games. The only reason 3DS will outsell this is by using better marketing like there past handhelds, more brand recognition (Ninty has always had the edge with customer awareness with there handhelds...especially after the snes where there console market dominance was shattered by Sony), & the fact that by the time PSP launches, the 3DS will be costing far less to produce & therefore will retail for less. Then again, because Sony are going for a lower launch price, trying to get a butt load of killer app titles ready for or not long after launch, it's said porting PS3/360 games will be easy, & the whole duel analogue sticks & far superior controls to any other handheld before it, or after it. Wow & like PS3 & PSP, I just read below that Vita will also be region free.
