Sony’s just announced the price and release date of their new handheld, the Playstation Vita.
The Wi-Fi model will retail at £230, while a 3G enabled model has a price of £280. Certainly a good price point for the Wi-Fi model. That’ll put it up against the 3DS in regards of pricing.
A release date has also been set for February 22nd. It’ll be interesting to see what the confirmed price will be when it hits the shops as we all remember the price drops of Nintendo’s 3DS, even on release day. Reports are also showing that memory cards are selling out in Japan for the device, so be sure to preorder yours extras before hand.
