As if Sony Ericsson hasn't already had enough headaches
with the Xperia Play
here comes Vodafone New Zealand with the announcement that its launch shipment of the gamer-friendly smartphone has been... stolen! We don't know how many Xperia Plays were in those crates, but it must take a pretty sophisticated operation to snatch up all of Voda's supply for an entire country.
slight hitch in transportation
blatant lie follows an unexplained delay
in shipments reaching the UK last month, and will compound shortages already caused by limited production capacity
in Japan. Man, imagine how terrible this news might have been if the Play actually had any games worth playing.
It's all fake. Vodafone recently released some "security footage" of the "theft" in action, which only served to immediately incite outrage in viewers of the clip, and a Vodafone New Zealand spokesperson admitted to The Australian
that the company made up the whole thing.
