Sony Europe has stated that the Japanese launch for the PlayStation Vita means very little and is expecting the launch in Europe to be its own beast.

"It is impossible to draw any meaningful conclusions of the Japanese launch in the context of what will happen in Europe," said PlayStation Europe boss Jim Ryan.

Ryan said that their only concerns right now, were "stakeholder reaction, whether that is specialist press or the reaction from retail" and "the key task of allocating the supply that we have to the considerable demand, and just ensuring everything is in place for February 22nd."

The PS Vita is due for launch in Europe on the 22nd of February. You can pre-order it at or
