PSVita priced and dated

Sony has announced its next generation portable, PlayStation Vita (formally called the NGP), will launch this Christmas

The launch window was confirmed by Sony’s corporate executive officer and executive VP Kaz Hirai during the platform holder’s E3 press conference. Hirai also officially announced the rumoured Vita is indeed the name for the new handheld, formerly NGP.

Two models of Vita will be on shelves worldwide by the end of the year: a WiFi-only version and a WiFi- and 3G-compatible SKU. AT&T was announced as the exclusive US carrier for the latter, with global carriers to be announced at a later date – most likely at Gamescom in August.
