Hundreds queue for UK and US Vita launch

According to The Telegraph, there were a couple of hundred people queuing in London to pick up the first Vita systems from GAME's Oxford Street branch (other reports say a lot less). Doesn't make much difference since Sony Europe never really reveals its hardware numbers, so it'll be months before we know how well its selling - far prefer the Japanese system, even though that can lead to huge amounts of short-term journo panic (cough - me too!)

Anyway, check out the usual forums for the best bargains on games and units with prices all over the shop (literally) Asda has the cheapest base units at the moment, while game prices vary between digital and physical, a real challenge for true bargain hunters.

A little later and over the pond, the U.S. launch got off to a more vibrant looking start with proper crowds and bustle.
