Update: Since reports confirmed PS Vita is in short supply for Japan, its release for US & Europe is now deemed impossible as of the moment.
How is it in short supply if it has yet to release? I'm sure Sony will provide more shipments as it's still a ways off.
Pre-orders. Online suppliers have already said that they are sold out.
Demand is outpacing supply, might as well consider those first 500k units gone already.
God damn just wait the two or three months and get a machine at home. It'll be cheaper and function in a language you understand.
i already pre-ordered my PSV from japan :D ahahahah @above Like PS3, and PSP, the console will contain ALL LANGUAGES from the FIRST WEEK I have both PS3 and PSP imported.
It's always great that your product is selling out. It means your product is performing better than expected. Now that pre-orders are selling out for the Vita Sony probably started ramping up production to try and keep up with demand at launch.
Jeez 500k sales in the first day alone with many more to come. I believe that the Vita will do a lot better than the 3DS IN Japan at launch. XperiaRay
Exactly... I am really looking forward to the JP release date, seeing some youtube videos about poeple in line and unboxing the the PSVITA.
Nice to see the vita selling good :) i wouldn't care if its out of stock, i would rather get it $200 cheaper in a few months and alot more launch titles and who knows..meybe some updated system or extra accessories or something :)
...so you're saying...that in a few months they are going to release a new and improved Vita at just 50 to 100 dollars? EDIT: Oh wait you're talking about importing it aren't you?
yeah if i where to import it it would most likely be like a 500 dollars price tag, to much for me :P id rather w8 a few months buy it at 300..since i'm getting the 3G and then get the option to pick up one of the many launch titles that will come with the early 2012 release :). this is probbably not a solid source but i heard that there are allready a 100 psvita games in the making and i'm guessing since 26 launch titles are abailable in japan whe'll see atleast about a 50 (hopefully) :)
"If you remember, many were skeptical about PS Vita’s future in the gaming industry and perhaps, Sony didn’t believe that its product would appeal to many that it failed to manufacture enough number of units." People are forgetting how the earthquake disrupted their plans. It was intended for worldwide release this year. Sony always pushes their products.
Yea people don't seem to understand Sony truly backs their products.Hell they supported betamax for many many years.
Awesome, I cant wait until it come over too states. PLAYB3YOND
Seems the Vita is doing quite well...selling out is a good sign for sony. I'm really happy I pre-ordered mine early. Can't wait to get my hands on the Vita :)
