PlayStation Vita is launching on Saturday. Sony is making sure early buyers rush online with PSN by holding a launch commemoration campaign with thousands of prizes.
The campaign involves three components: collect, find, and buy.
Download two "PS Vita Support Tickets" from PlayStation Store, one from your PS3, PSP or PC (via Media Go) and one straight from your Vita. All participants will get a wallpaper collection consisting of a wallpaper for each launch title. 1,000 participants will win a ¥500 PlayStation Network ticket.
Search PlayStation Store on your Vita and you'll find paper bags. Collect five bronze bags and a silver bag will appear in the shop. Collect three of those silver bags, and a gold bag will appear in the shop. Anyone who manages to get a gold bag will be entered into a drawing for one of 1,000 ¥1,000 PSN tickets.
Buy a PS Vita title from the PS Store either through your PS Vita or PS3, and you'll be entered into a drawing for one of 100 silver leather cases and straps. This color is exclusive to PlayStation Store.
The campaign will run through January 9. See Sony's campaign page for details.
