PS4 sold out of preorders in just minutes the second it went live in Japan @_@

This is beyond great news, I fully expect the Vita TV and PS Vita to start picking up insanely in sales solely due to being VERY useful addon for PS4.

Which results in more games for all of us Vita fans.

So, how many units were up for preorder?

LOL at all the whiners and trolls. They know Vita tv and new model will kill all competition. Festering wounds for the Nintendrones by the gallons. - karissa1

We don't know specifics but we do know they are much higher then they have ever been for Sony.

if the ps4 sells well, unless the wii u suddenly spikes in sales, then the ps4 will be the only viable option for japanese console games. I'm not sure how to feel about this.

Not surprising, even the Vita and Wii-U had strong launches. The problem is the drop off that follows. The third month and onwards will probably be a better indicator of how well the system is doing given how other consoles have fared.

Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

I meant games on consoles made by japanese devs, not japanese-only games. I'm imagining something like the ps2 days, where every third party dev put their games on the ps2.
