    Sony Sells Out of PS Vita Pre-Launch Bundles


    02/23/2012 Written by Alex Osborn
    It looks like the PlayStation Vita is off to a solid start in the west, as First Edition Bundles of the system completely sold out.In an interview with GameSpot, Guy Longworth, Sony’s senior VP of PlayStation marketing shared the company’s excitement over the successful launch of the Vita. With regard to initial sales, he said:
    It went great. We sold out our prelaunch bundles, so we’re excited about that. We got a great response to it.
    He went on to discuss software over the course of the early launch week, noting some of the system’s top sellers.
    The best-selling so far is Uncharted: Golden Abyss. It’s been warmly received, and that really doesn’t surprise us given the popularity of that franchise with our core consumers. There are a number of others that appear to be doing well: Little Deviants, Hot Shots Golf, ModNation Racers… It’s very early days, but Uncharted is top of the charts so far.

    It certainly hasn't sold out over here. At least I'm sure it hasn't.

    This is the same nut who nodded and said yes when asked if ND and other top tier Sony devs will be working on the Vita; only for ND to come out and say it's not true. Lol

    You're right, it hasn't - still seems to be plenty available. What this guy is talking about though is that First Edition Bundle that released last week in the US

    Lol.

    For them to actually sell out, They are going to have to be huge numbers, like 400k-600k. If not, that means he either BSed OR they undershipped. I think its bs but thought I'd share.

    FEB is still going strong. Honestly, I'm not a big fan of Sony's execs. At least when it comes to PR. All of them SUCK. They look stiff while reading the prompter or sound anal while repeating what the Publicist coached them to say. At least when peter moore was arrogant when he was with xbox, he had pizzazz lol.

    As much as I dislike most of the PS team, its the games that keep me here.
