This weekend, Japanese stores started accepting pre-orders for PlayStation Vita. Sony plans on releasing two models: one with 3G support and a Wi-Fi only model without.
Retailer and blogger Sinobi reports the 3G version is more popular among his customers. 65% of PlayStation Vita reservations on the first day were for the 3G model. The other 35% were for the Wi-Fi version, that means the 3G version sold nearly 2:1. 82% of people bought a memory stick and 72% picked up one with 32GB of storage.
Sinobi also notes in his tweet selling PlayStation Vita software was more difficult. According to his data, the PlayStation Vita has a tie ratio (games per console purchased) was 0.57. Still way too early to determine if this is a negative sign since some users may be waiting for reviews or more information about the PlayStation Vita’s launch lineup.
