Simultaneous launch in the West nailed down as pricing details are confirmed...
Sony has announced a simultaneous launch across all territories outside of Japan for its PS Vita handheld. The PSP's successor will arrive across Europe, North America, Africa, the Middle-East, and Australasia on February 22nd.
This is effectively two months after the scheduled Japanese release, which was previously announced for December 17th. Sony has also confirmed pricing details for the UK, which come in at £229.99 for the core Wi-Fi model and £279.99 for the Wi-Fi/3G model.
The PS Vita has been widely heralded as the arrival of next-gen handheld gaming following its various press appearances across the globe so far. Featuring a rear touch panel, touch screen, motion controls, front and rear facing cameras that are head-tracking compatible, and dual-analogue sticks, it's nothing short of a gaming gadgeteer's dream come true.
Vita's hardware specs aren't too shabby either: the CPU and GPU house four cores apiece, while memory comes in at 512MB of RAM and 128MB of VRAM, all of which adds up to graphical capabilities close to that of the PS3. Sony has also decided to ditch the much-maligned Universal Media Disc (UMD) storage solution for the PS Vita, instead opting for flash memory cards that Sony has branded as 'NVG cards'.
"PlayStation Vita is an incredible device that offers the best possible portable gaming experiences. Its revolutionary mix of features combined with social connectivity, delivers a platform for gamers to play games in a whole new way and to connect with their friends and the world around them," said Jim Ryan, President and CEO, SCEE. "We're very excited to launch a portable gaming device that goes beyond anything available on the market and is positioned to deliver the uncompromised gaming experiences consumers have been asking for."
