Sony has hit out at what it says are exaggerated reports of PS Vita issues following the handheld's Japanese debut this weekend.
According to the platform holder, any hardware problems are isolated and not widespread issues. It also denied reports it had apologised for any problems.
SCE UK PR boss David Wilson told the Guardian: "The PS Vita has had a terrific launch and sold in large numbers. We're annoyed with these stories, because we can't find any evidence of widespread glitches.
"The stories even said that Sony has issued an apology for PS Vita glitches, which simply isn't true - there's an apology on our Japanese website for people who are having trouble getting through to our technical help line, but that's it.
"And there's a page showing standard procedures for powering the PS Vita on and off, which has been on our site since before the launch, which has been presented in some news stories as a means of solving the alleged glitches."
Vita sold around 325,000 units in its first two days of availability in Japan.
