In an interview with CVG, Sony Computer Entertainment UK managing director Fergal Gara has spoken about how encouraging the launch has been for the PlayStation Vita.
After witnessing launch day for himself, Fergal Gara spoke about how much excitement surrounding the UK midnight launch and the enthusiasm of gamers waiting to purchase the handheld. He stated the following:
“First of all, the excitement of a midnight console launch was great to see – it’s my first time seeing that first-hand, on this side of the fence. It was fantastic to see that enthusiasm. We are in a new world, of course, where early sales don’t only come from queuing at midnight, and there are a hell of a lot of pre-orders shipping today, which have been ordered either through retailers or online specialists, so judging the numbers at this stage is very hard. But people are coming through with re-orders, which is always exciting to see.”
Gara also added that Sony has enough units to keep stores in stock with the new must-have hardware.
“We’ve got enough to satisfy demand; it depends how big those re-orders are and how the week plays out. We’re seeing encouraging signs, but it’s very, very early.”
