For the gaming community, here's some news to warm the cockles of their heart. Sony's gaming systems have been a rage all over the world. Sony will now be launching the PlayStation Vita in North America and Europe after the Christmas and New Year holidays. This will help the company's popular pre-order demand for the system.
Sony has been a world leader in gaming technology. Its PlayStation revolutionized the world of gaming by bringing games right into users' living rooms with stunning clarity and almost 3-D precision.
Sony's PlayStation director of hardware marketing John Koller claimed the firm had made some tweaks to its plans as their initial announcement had raised some eyebrows. Talking to the Wall Street Journal's AllThingsD blog, he said, "We've increased production materially since E3. We learned our lesson to make sure you have enough product."
The Vita is slated to hit Japanese markets on December 17. This is in keeping with Sony's promise that the Vita would launch in at least one region before the year is out. Koller claimed in the interview that he was not unduly worried about the Vita's competition with games that are available on tablets and high-tech cell phones. Two days ago Sony had announced that North American customers who pre-order a Vita with Little Deviants would be in for a special treat: they would be able to get their hands on the system a week before the official February 22 launch.
He went on to say, "This is a larger game experience. We think we are insulated from the competition. We love mobile games. Mobile and tablets games are additive."
