Sony Never Apologized For Vita Malfunctions, Because They Don't Exist
Much like Jon Bon Jovi's rumored death, it appears the newly released handheld is just fine.
Yesterday, the Internet was abuzz with reports of widespread PlayStation Vita malfunctions in Japan. The issue was apparently so great, Sony was forced to issue a public apology to fans while releasing a software update to fix different problems.
Not true, says head of UK PR David Wilson.
[I]The PS Vita has had a terrific launch and sold in large numbers. We're annoyed with these stories, because we can't find any evidence of widespread glitches.
The stories even said that Sony has issued an apology for PS Vita glitches, which simply isn't true. There's an apology on our Japanese website for people who are having trouble getting through to our technical help line, but that's it.
And there's a page showing standard procedures for powering the PS Vita on and off, which has been on our site since before the launch, which has been presented in some news stories as a means of solving the alleged glitches.[/I]
Not sure what happened here. Could have been something lost in translation, or silly Vita haters out to make Sony look bad. Whatever the case, it's great to know the system works as intended.
