Sony and CentreSoft have thanked UK independent retailers for their support during the launch of PlayStation Vita.
The two companies provided a massive range of POS to indies and even held a window display competition to encourage smarter Vita promotions.
A 3G PlayStation Vita was given to the five shops that made the best use of FSDUs, standees, posters, hanging PlayStation symbols and dummy boxes.
The winners were Console Connections (Truro), Insane Games, Seedee Jons, Xpress Games and Tomorrow’s World.
“The indie sector has a key role to play in the launch of PlayStation Vita,” said SCE UK sales director Mark Howsen. “We’ve been really impressed by the way they have embraced this, the response has been terrific and we have five very worthy winners.
“We’d like to thank the indie sector for their enthusiasm and continued support in helping PlayStation Vita to get off to a great start.”
CentreSoft commercial director Margaret Pearson added: “Sony continuously supports the independent sector and has excelled in the support package offered for the launch of PS Vita. We’ve had a fantastic response to the window display competition.”
