If you were hoping to preorder a PSVita in Japan, then you’re probably out of luck already. And if you’ve tried, you know what I’m talking about…Preorder units on major retailers got sold out within a few hours on Saturday. So even if you were lucky enough to actually reach the sites without a timeout, you could probably not even buy the device.
When the PS3 came out, I remember seeing scenes of old Japanese guys paying homeless people and students to wait in line in stores, and buy as many PS3s as they could, in order to resell them for twice the price. Are we going to see preorders for insane prices popping up on ebay?
