Amazon claims it has been canned by Sony
With the Sony Vita not even launched yet in North America, Amazon has already created quite a ruckus by listing the 3G version of the PlayStation Vita as “Discontinued by the Manufacturer.” And the Vita has not even been launched in North America in any form.
Sony is spreading the word that the 3G version of the PlayStation Vita has not been canceled for release in North America. This confirms what our own undercover operatives are telling us, despite a number of other outlets suggesting that cutting a deal (or deals) with North American cell providers has been an issue.
Despite the theatrics, it would seem that the Vita is still coming in both the Wi-Fi Only and 3G configurations for release on February 22nd. The 3G First Edition bundle is slated to come out a week ahead of that date for those who already ordered that offering. Look for Sony to get Amazon to correct the error in the next day or two.
