January 4, 2012 Written by Nick Michetti

Vita sales news from the handheld’s second week in Japan may not have been as good as some had hoped. But some positive sales news has emerged about Vita in a report about pre-orders for the device from a major US retailer.

Punchjump reports that on the top ten pre-order products from Best Buy’s online division, the PlayStation Vita’s First Edition Bundle has ranked #9 of 10 this week “due to strong advanced demand.” The bundle comes packaged with a 4GB Memory Card, a case, and Little Deviants. It will retail for $349.99 and release on February 15th.

The report did not mention pre-order figures for the Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + 3G model releasing on the system’s official launch date in North America and Europe, February 22.

Some publishers are releasing titles such as Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 one week earlier to coincide with the First Edition Bundle’s release.
