The PlayStation Vita has assumed a commanding position in Amazon.co.uk's video games pre-order charts.
The Wi-Fi console and 8GB memory card currently top the bestseller lists on the strength of their pre-orders alone.
In total the machine and associated games can lay claim to nearly three quarters of the top 20 pre-order charts, too.
14 of the top 20 positions in our video games pre-order chart are held by the PlayStation Vita console, games and accessories, which clearly illustrates the level of excitement that we are seeing around the product,” Amazon UK's video games manager Liz Hosmer stated.
The release of a console is always big news and the buzz created around the new technology and enhanced gameplay has ensured that the PlayStation Vita is a bestseller in our charts before it has even been released.”
