Default PS Vita Launch Such a Big Deal It's Attracting Celebrities

as some of you may (or may not) know, PlayStation has a weekly podcast they post on the PlayStation Blog known as the "PlayStation Blogcast"

I was just listening to this weeks episode and was surprised to hear that the launch of PS Vita had attracted the attention of certain movie stars.

at exactly 11 min and 25 sec into the episode the audio cuts to pre-recorded mic interviews with 4 different celebs who had shown up at a Vita Hill Social Club to try it out.

The celebs in question are:

Josh Duhamel from Transformers



ChloŽ Grace Moretz from Kick-Ass and Hugo



Liam Hemsworth from the Hunger Games



and...

Rick Malambri from Step Up 3D



so far they're calling this the most successful Sony system launch in history.

you can listen to the blogcast here:

Never heard of any of those and also, really? The Vita really isn't impressive to me with the amount of things wrong with it and the fact there's only a few games.

you are if you were in a movie, and all of them were, very popular movies, and they all played main characters.

Google is your friend.

there's over 16 launch titles and most of them are big name games... (Uncharted, ModNation, Super Stardust, Wipeout, Host Shots Golf, ect.), and there's more right around the corner 9such as LittleBigPlanet) that's more than PS3 had.

Vita Hill Social Club must be code for Douche Bag Central Social Club.

One guy looks strikingly similar to Ryan Reynolds. And the last guy looks like he could be Ricky Martins cousin.

Correction: Sony secretly paid celebrities to come to the Vita Hill Social Clubs and do interviews, but to pretend that they came there on their own.

Really man, learn to recognize a marketing stunt when you see one.

I only recognise the first two people, low level celebrities love to get involved in things like this.
