Stores not stocking Vita?

18 replies 55 views Edited Apr 17, 2012

I was browsing through my local Tesco and noticed that they are not stocking the PS Vita. Nothing, not even an advertisement. It kinda perplexed me, I know it's not an electronics store but for me they have always been top notch for things like this. It's really sad to see this, are stores just refusing to stock it yet or are Sony being careful with the marketing or what. I figured it could be store specific, but apparently the GameStation near me are not stocking it either. You guys know anything about this?

I'm really hoping this console get's a real chance to take off, it's got a bad reputation at the moment, and it's sad to see all of this brilliant hardware get badmouthed left right and center. Fingers crossed Sony can pull this all together.

I don't have Tesco or Gamestation here.

But I've seen it in all the stores near me, that would normally carry it:

EB/Gamestop (obviously)

Walmart

Bestbuy

Target

Shopko

NIce selection of accessories too.

...and probably a few more that I can't think of right now.

They could probably advertise a little better, although I have seen quite a few ads on TV lately. (more than I ever saw for PSP)

Guess it's store specific then. Now that you mention it, I don't recall seeing PSP's around all too much - and I loved that console.

They are indeed, but my local one has a massive electronics department. It stocked 3DS from day one, so I just can't understand why the PS Vita is being left out.

I'm surprised that Costco isn't carrying it yet, but I sure they will by this fall.

My local Target has already been clearencing Vita accessories like the USB cable and AC adaptor...
