Pre-Orders for the PS Vita are selling out across Japan, even though there are still two months before the device is due to release.
According to RPG Site, both Amazon Japan and Yodobashi are both now reporting that the machine is out of stock, which is backed up by the pages for the 3G and WiFi versions of the PlayStation Vita on Amazon.co.jp showing that the handheld “is no longer available.” Yodobashi features similar messaging.
Japanese gaming blog esuteru has pointed out a lack of availability all over Japan, with retailers including sofmap, bic camera and joshin having sold out. The list shows practically all of Japan’s major online retailers.
Play-Asia still seems to have both the WiFi and the 3G models available for import pre-order, although we get the feeling that they won’t have for long.
