Vita Pre-Orders Popular In Hong Kong

News PS Vita Sony

Before the Playstation Vita is actually release in the West, there is a small territory known as Hong Kong that will be releasing it in the same month as the Japanese. Recently, retailers around Hong Kong have opened pre-orders for the handheld. What was the reception? Lines were long, eager buyers flowed like champagne and online stores had a sudden spike in visitors in their gaming sections. All in all, Hong Kong is very excited, if a report on Engadget China is to be believed.

This picture is a store in Hong Kong with a long line of people waiting to pre-order their Vita:

Unfortunately, this has also led to opportunities of the scalping kind. But, with the release date looming closer, one has to wonder whether the crowds would only be bigger on December 23. Two stores actually sold all of their pre-order stock, which was the only way the crowds dispersed. This is also the release date for Taiwan. This comes two days before a widely celebrated Western holiday and six days after the Japanese release date of December 17, which will be the first country to receive the Vita.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
