GameStop: PlayStation Vita Readily Available
Thinking of buying Sony's handheld? You're in luck. It appears the system is in stock.
Sony's PlayStation Vita is currently available nationwide, and if you intend to buy the system, we have good news: stores appear to have units to sell, even for those who did not pre-order.
To see if Sony's new machine was sold out, we contacted 15 GameStops in the New York/New Jersey area.
Of the 15, two were sold out. Five had the 3G model, one had Wi-Fi only and seven had both models.
That said, we suggest you pick one up ASAP, as those numbers will probably change throughout the day.
Also, this may or may not apply to your state/town, so be sure to call ahead before making the trip.
So is this good or bad news for Sony? Too early to tell. We don't know how many systems the company shipped to stores. For all we know, it satisfied demand.
At the same time, hot video game consoles and handhelds are normally scarce on launch day. We'll have to wait for the official word from Sony. Either way, it's great to know interested shoppers can buy Vita.
