In the first two days after its launch, Sony sold 321,000 PSP Vitas - and were very happy with this number. However the following week was rather weak, and Sony sold only 72,500 Vitas in the whole week following the first two days. There were some reports of stock shortages and it seems that some customers are waiting for bug fixes, but in any case this is quite a disappointment for Sony. The Vita will launch in the US and the EU on February 22nd, 2012. You can already pre-order it over at Amazon.com ($249 for the Wi-Fi model and $299 for the 3G/Wi-fi model).
The Vita features a 960x544 5" touch AMOLED display (made by Samsung), a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor and a quad-core PowerVR (SGX543MP4+) GPU (Sony says that it is as powerful as a PS3), Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and 3G (AT&T, optional).
