It looks like the PlayStation Vita isn’t doing very well. The console was released in Japan last Saturday, and it didn’t even manage to sell-out across the country. To make matters worse, it has been reported that the console was launched with a number of problems in tow. According to t reports online, the Vita has software bugs, unresponsive touchscreens and complete system freezes. Thanks to the power of Twitter’s instant updates, you can be pretty sure news spread like wildfire, which I’m sure also contributed to the console’s sales.
Fortunately for Vita users, Sony is aware of the problems and has issued an apology and a software update. Hopefully these issues won’t be present anymore when the Vita is finally released to the rest of the world. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Check out a video demonstration of the Vita locking up:
Update 12/22: It looks like there were some errors in the post: the “apology” that Sony issued was mistranslated and isn’t concerning errors with the PlayStation Vita. Head here for more information.
