Limited-edition of Sony Hatsune Miku Walkman S series sells out in 6 hours
Sony stopped accepting pre-orders for its limited-edition Hatsune Miku Walkman S series less than six hours after sales began at 11 a.m. on Aug. 3. Sony will release three models of the portable music player featuring Hatsune Miku to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the virtual singing idol. The models, which come in blue or black, or blue with external speakers, feature an image of the singer on the screen and include her trademark song Hoshi no Kakera preinstalled.
Sony limited the production of the models to 3,939 units in wordplay on “39,” which can be pronounced as miku in Japanese. The units are priced at 12,800 yen ($163) and 15,800 yen ($201) with matching speaker unit.
