    Vita Beginning to Vanish from Major Retailers

    PS Vita No Longer Available at Major Retailers € Hardcore Gamer


    Not only was the PS Vita almost completely absent from Sony’s E3 showing, but now seems to be absent from major U.S. retailers as well. All of the Vita models and packages — even the recently released Borderlands 2 bundle that included the new model — are no longer available directly from Amazon, GameStop, Walmart or Target. Physical stores also seem to be out of the handheld, as searches for stock and calls to local outlets came up with zero results.

    GameStop has a Borderlands bundle with an accessory and PS Plus voucher for pre-order, but it won’t be in stock until August.

    At the moment, it’s unclear why stocks have diminished across the board; whether retailers are choosing to no longer stock the retails, have sold out, or if Sony has not been replenshing stocks. We’ve reached out to Sony for comment and will update the article with any applicable information.

    A Sony spokesperson said the problem is increased demand, not diminished supply.

    Were seeing healthy consumer demand for PS Vita globally, particularly in markets like Japan, the representative said.

    The U.S. launch of the slimmer and lighter PS Vita has generated strong interest among gamers, and were working to replenish supply here to ensure continued momentum leading into the holidays.

    Thanks to mobile phone gaming, I'm surprised anyone pays attention to handheld consoles.

    They're vanishing because of high demand. So, I'm sure they'll add more Vitas in stock.

    If I wanted to listen to someone who has no clue what they're talking about, fails to comprehend the facts, and then cherry picks them, I'd watch fox news.

    When your quotes become 'bloke writing on Polygon comments section' it might be time to start having your own opinion.

    He just said that because you're the Nintendo fanboy.

    It's promising to see Vita sales increasing ever so slightly, but sadly I don't think they'll go far beyond that given the stagnant future in terms of big games.

    Sony more than likely ceased or slowed production of ver. 1.0 months ago, seeing as it was too expensive to produce (they lost money every sale), and 2.0 was right around the corner. That probably lead to lower stock to begin with as they cleared current 1.0 stock, and with 2.0 production just ramping-up since May, and greater demand (ie. Borderlands 2 bundle with 8GB card for $200 - great deal), it's obvious why there's a shorter supply.

    Basic logic and sound reasoning...WHAAAAAA?
