Europe Getting Vita In 2012?

Europe Getting Vita In 2012?

Sony has said all along that the PlayStation Vita would only begin its global launch in 2011. It never said there’d be a worldwide launch in 2011. So somebody misses out. Guess who!

VG247 reports that a 2012 European launch for Sony’s new handheld is a “certainty”. We’re contacting Sony for comment, but if true, this is hardly surprising news.

  • Dammit, Luke – even though you never read the AU comments, I want you to know that your stories are sh♥t.

    No source reference or link? Biased “oh I’m so clever” commentary?

    You suck, your work is terrible, and you’re ruining an otherwise good site run by Mark that at least has articles of more than six sentences.

    • No because the world ends in 2012 so Australia gets screwed again! Along with, you know, the other continents and sundry smaller land masses.

  • eb games apparently has it listed as “2011” in there system and some uk retailers have reported a November 4th release date, while others claim the release date was December 31st and has been delayed to 4th of January.

    End result? Wait until SONY announces a release date.

  • I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he was using begin as the key word here, meaning it would not finish it’s global/world wide launch in 2011.

    Though I am probably being generous, and regardless, it is needlessly confusing if so.

  • Wouldn’t importing a DD only system be pointless? Even if you use a NA account there’s no reason for the servers to be up before a local release.
