Sony is hopping mad that there were a bunch of stories circulating around the Internet, touting that the first batch of PS Vitas that hit Japan has been plagued by issues such as software bugs, unresponsive touchscreens and complete system freezes. We would like to apologize for adding fuel to the fire though. Sony did acknowledge that a handful of new PS Vita owners might have experienced “isolated malfunctions”, but is rather firm in their viewpoint that users should no longer be experiencing any more issues, considering it moved over 300,000 units during the launch weekend in the Land of the Rising Sun.
According to David Wilson, head of UK PR at Sony Computer Entertainment, “The PS Vita has had a terrific launch and sold in large numbers. We’re annoyed with these stories, because we can’t find any evidence of widespread glitches. The stories even said that Sony has issued an apology for PS Vita glitches, which simply isn’t true – there’s an apology on our Japanese website for people who are having trouble getting through to our technical help line, but that’s it. And there’s a page showing standard procedures for powering the PS Vita on and off, which has been on our site since before the launch, which has been presented in some news stories as a means of solving the alleged glitches.”
