Following a night of DJing the live Video Game Awards on Spike TV, famed DJ Deadmau5 apparently left a yet-to-be-released PS Vita sitting in a L.A. cab.
Joel "Deadmau5" Zimmerman tweeted about the loss shortly before 1 a.m. pacific time.
"FUCK! I left my PSP Vita in a fuckin cab, calling cab company and they say they have like 500 dispatched now. Gunna be a long night... :("
In a stream of follow-up Tweets, the DJ says that the Vita was the only demo unit "outside Sony's walls."
Zimmerman said he was playing with the Sony portable during the cab ride back to the hotel. He said a friend used it, then put it down beside him when he was done. The DJ said he saw it on the seat but forgot to grab it. When they arrived at the hotel, Zimmerman paid cash and stepped out, leaving the unit behind.
Following the loss, Zimmerman and his agent spent three hours working with the cab company to try and locate the demo unit, with no luck.
