In what was their closing commentary, Sony has confirmed that the PSVita (yes, that’s officially the name; I don’t much care for it) will be launching this holiday season, and for the price of $249.99/€ ($299.99/€ for 3G model). Well within the reach of many people. I’d guess a calendar date will be mentioned soon.
It has been long suspected that the system would retail for a higher price, namely at least in the $300-$350 range, given the amount of technology crammed into the handheld. The games alone are simply stunning and even offer some experiences you can’t get on it’s big brother, the PS3.
With that kind of price, it would be kind of hard to not want to get one. Also, for the record, eat it EdEN, you naysayer 😛 Be sure to check out the announcement video after the jump.
