We’ve in the final days leading up to the PlayStation Vita launch in North America, Europe and Australia. In fact, the first truckload of PS Vita units arrived earlier today and are being prepped for final shipping to retail. Check out the rare behind-the-scenes shots of very large quantities of PS Vita units arriving in Australia.
Here’s a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into the operations of a major games company. As you can see, the PS Vita units arrive in very large quantities. Palettes to be exact, each containing somewhere in the order of 500 PS Vita units per palette. That’s a lot of PS hardware (drool).
Operational staff carefully unpack each of the palettes, separating stock into relevant groups (3G versus WiFi models and so forth). Then begins the arranging of actual orders for each of the major retailers. The same needs to be done for each of the hundreds of cartons containing the various software titles and peripheral accessories that will also be available for PS Vita at launch.
