PS VITA UK PSN STORE WHEN??????

Wondered if anyone on here could shed some light as to when the online store will become available for the Vita.

 

Mine was delivered this morning and i get greeted with the 'not available in your country' message.

 

Called Customer Services and they were there usual helpful selves!? I was told it would be one minute past midnight on 22nd Feb. When i questioned as to why the American store had opened so early i was told that they were unaware of this.... hmmmmmmmm.

 

It seems that with every Sony launch in the UK we get the worst experience. The PSP Go launch was nothing short of shambolic and when you consider what the UK market contributes towards all of this it really does make you question what little if any reward we do receive back.

 

So if anyone knows then that would be great...

 

Cheers

because generally no1 will have Vita's untill the 22nd anyway. the US had an early bird pack so they needed to have it live earlier than the 22nd, but most people who have it in europe/UK have it due to importing it...

Actually the PSN Vita store was up for Sony games before the early edition bundle. also that some store in Canada and US sold Vita games ahead of time (like more than a week before the early edition bundle in Canada).

That retailer was Amazon in Canada. They broke the sweet date but that as no bearing on when the games were put on the PSN. Store. At the end of the day no one is in a position to expect the content to be up before launch day or complain when it's not.

Ordered online from HMV.

 

I just think it would allow people the time to get stuff downloaded and be prepared for when it is launched as they did in the US.

First of all I wouldn't go blaming Sony. This is the case with most things here and outside the US in general. It doesn't make it right but thats the way things are. Secondly if you are going to blame Sony then blame SCEE and not Sony in general as each division operates separately. Thirdly the Vita has been available in North America since the 15th so it's only appropriate those people who already have it there should have access to it. And fourthly the Vita PSN store is up there but on the PS3 it still hasn't been set up and you have to search for the games. In short don't go blaming Sony when unfortunately this is the case in general here.

I didn't say that. I said it was up in the US on PSN but you have to search for the games. There isn't yet a dedicated Vita section on the US PSN store when accessed from the PS3. If you have a Vita with a US account you can access the Vita store on their already.

Really? Well maybe they're testing it at least. It would be shame if the launch is marred by problems with PSN downloads due to the number of people trying it out and downloading their stuff simultaneously :/
