The PlayStation Vita finally has a concrete release date!
In a post by PlayStation President & CEO Jack Tretton on the PS Blog, the PlayStation Vita was revealed to have a February 22nd 2012 release date for Canada, US, Latin America, and Europe.
Here is an excerpt detailing what to expect on the games side for the Vita,
“Our first-party studios and army of publishing partners have been extremely hard at work to ensure that PS Vita launches with a vast library of titles that deliver unique gameplay experiences that go beyond any handheld or mobile device on the market. We have more than 100 games currently in development globally that span many different genres, including Sound Shapes, Resistance: Burning Skies, Uncharted Golden Abyss, Capcom’s Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed, EA Sports’ FIFA, Activision’s Call of Duty, and numerous others that you’ll hear about in the months ahead.”
And another detailing the app support with social networking sites,
“In addition to the deep portfolio of games, you’ll also have access to native social applications – near and Party – that help you connect with your friends and fellow PS Vita owners. We also recently announced that PS Vita will have your favorite social networking applications like Facebook, foursquare, Skype, and Twitter, so you can share and connect with friends. With PS Vita, you can enjoy the best handheld gaming experience available and stay connected to the people and interests you care about.”
I, for one, am definitely looking forward to what should be a wonderful piece of hardware from Sony!
