PlayStation Vita Set To Arrive In Australia In February [Pricing Update Inside]


We’ve just heard word that the PlayStation Vita has an Australian release date, and will be heading to our shores on February 22.

Sony are sending the official word, and hopefully Australian pricing, soon. We’ll update this story with more details as we get them.

The PlayStation Blog has European price details, which are usually more in line with what we pay here in Australia. It will be available in Europe for €249.95 for the Wi-fi version and €299.95 for the 3G version.

UPDATE: We’ve just received Australian pricing for the Vita.

The Wifi version of the PlayStation Vita will retail at $349.95 while the 3G version will retail at $449.95.

“PlayStation Vita is a revolutionary device, which will offer the best possible portable gaming experiences available on the market,” said Michael Ephraim, Managing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia and New Zealand. “Its impressive feature set is designed to provide the ultimate gaming experiences on the go. This, combined with social connectivity means there will be not only innovative new ways to play, but also new ways to connect with others. We are incredibly excited about the upcoming launch of PlayStation Vita.”

What say you about the local pricing? The Wifi pricing seems reasonable, but the mark up for 3G is a bit pricey for my tastes. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
