ships out a few Vitas early

Some Amazon shoppers in Canada are even luckier than those buying a selection of early Vita games at GameStop: their Vitas somehow got out of Amazon's warehouse well ahead of launch.

Multiple users in the Red Flag Deals forum report receiving shipping notices this week, with a few already having the systems in their hands -- not just of the "First Edition" bundles, but the wi-fi Vita, which isn't due to launch officially until February 22.

Before you rush over to, note that Amazon has caught on and returned the item to its proper February 22 ship date. Congratulations to the elite Canadian Vita owners' club!
