PS Vita launch in UK is “encouraging”- Sony

Posted By | On 22nd, Feb. 2012

Following the PS Vita’s UK launch today, PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara said that even thought it was early to tell, the sales in the region so far are ‘encouraging.’ This comes right after Jack Tretton said that the US sales data for the PS Vita was “very, very positive”.

“First of all, the excitement of a midnight console launch was great to see – it’s my first time seeing that first-hand, on this side of the fence. It was fantastic to see that enthusiasm,” said Gara in an interview with CVG.

“We are in a new world, of course, where early sales don’t only come from queuing at midnight, and there are a hell of a lot of pre-orders shipping today, which have been ordered either through retailers or online specialists, so judging the numbers at this stage is very hard. But people are coming through with re-orders, which is always exciting to see.

“We’ve got enough [stock] to satisfy demand; it depends how big those re-orders are and how the week plays out. We’re seeing encouraging signs, but it’s very, very early.”
