Sony confident of record-breaking PS Vita launch
Sony has expressed confidence that the new PlayStation Vita could set records when it makes its eagerly awaited UK debut in February 2012.
PS Vita is poised to shake up the portable gaming scene with its high-definition graphics, dual analogue and touch controls and its robust wireless online features.
PlayStation Europe boss Jim Ryan told Eurogamer that he fully expects the high-tech handheld console to sell out when it hits stores, thanks to the strong line-up of launch titles that have been announced.
The Sony man highlighted Uncharted: Golden Abyss as a potential "killer app" for PS Vita, while games such as WipEout 2048, ModNation Racers: Road Trip and MotorStorm RC will also be debuting in February.
"I think it's comfortably the strongest line-up we've had for any platform launch and I've been around since the year dot," said Mr Ryan.
The industry veteran went on to suggest that PS Vita stands a great chance of bettering its predecessor the PSP's initial sales of 185,000 and achieving the biggest launch sales in UK history.
