Spent a long time in Denden Town (Osaka's mini-Akihabara) today. Some things of note (some of this won't be directly Vita related, but I figure this is as good a place as any):
-Wi-Fi models were not in stock at any of the 6 stores I visited
-One store was selling the 3G non-gentei version (does this mean Sony already sold over 500k 3G versions to retailers? >.>)
-All 6 stores had 3G versions in stock; 5 were the 100hr versions, and 1 was the 20hr version (see above)
-Various games sold out at various stores, not conclusive but Lord of Apocalypse was only in stock at 1/6 stores, Disgaea at 2/6 stores, Monster Radar at 3/6 stores. Few other games were sold out at 1 or 2 stores.
-Used copies of Monster Radar and BlazBlue at the biggest store (no others anywhere else) -- BlazBlue had notice on case "case damage and instruction book damage" /smh people, already?
-Biggest stores were sold out of 4, 16, and 32 memory cards, smaller shops had everything but the 32 (which was nowhere)
-Zelda: SS was sold out at a couple of stores -- resurgence next week on the charts?
-The stores in general were freaking PACKED, expect some pretty crazy game and hardware sells incoming
