A representative from Sony spoke on the issue of PS Vita shortages saying "The U.S. launch of the slimmer and lighter Vita has generated strong interest among gamers, and we're working to replenish supply here to ensure continued momentum leading into the holidays."
Even a Gamestop representative weighed in on the issue saying "The system has sold better than expected and we are working closely with Sony to receive more (systems)."
It is hard to say why there was such a sudden boost in PS Vita interest, heaven knows it wasn't due to E3. Perhaps the recent launch of Borderlands, or the upcoming Vita version of Minecraft has sparked some badly needed interest. The PS4 is also low on stock, perhaps there is correlation there. Whatever the reason lets continue to support the Vita, and watch it grow in numbers!
