If you’re planning to have a trip to Japan just so you can be one of the first few people in the world to own a PlayStation Vita, you better start booking those tickets right now. The official release date for Sony’s next generation handheld console has been confirmed by the company itself – it’s going to be on sale December 17th in Japan. The $250 console is a huge step up from the current generation PSP, with new features such as dual touch surfaces, dual analogs, and dual cameras, with a whole bunch of exciting games lined up for its release.
No word on when the PlayStation Vita will be released in the rest of the world yet but people are expecting an end of December, early January release in the US. Keep those fingers crossed. Anybody planning to fly to Japan to stand in line for the Vita this December?
