A few websites were reporting earlier in the week claiming Sony had apologised for early teething issues with the PS Vita. That wasn’t the case – they apologised for any delays getting through to their customer service department, but are adamant that there are no mass issues with the console as some are speculating.
Sony Europe’s PR boss, David Wilson, lays the smack down. “The PS Vita has had a terrific launch and sold in large numbers,” he said. “We’re annoyed with these stories, because we can’t find any evidence of widespread glitches.”
“The stories even said that Sony has issued an apology for PS Vita glitches, which simply isn’t true – there’s an apology on our Japanese website for people who are having trouble getting through to our technical help line, but that’s it.”
There are some isolated problems – mind. The machine freezes and can lock up the touchscreen (presumably as a direct result of the freezing rather than anything additional) but Sony are, as you’d expect, keen to turn down the rumour dial a little bit.
