A United Kingdom retailer, ShopTo.net, has given the PlayStation Vita a release date of November 4th, 2011 on its online store. The website lists the Vita with a starting price £228.94 to those that order before the release.
While we would love this to be the official release date, it is likely that the retailer has estimated the release date to encourage eager fans to pre-order the upcoming handheld console.
Speaking to GameSpot, Sony said that no official date had been given, making it even more clear that ShopTo has probably added the November 4 release as a placeholder.
“No one has communicated any release dates to retail partners. That date is not official as we haven’t announced anything yet.” Said Sony.
Previously, Sony stated that Vita would launch worldwide in 2011, so let’s hope it isn’t too far away from ShopTo’s placeholder. As far as I’m concerned, the sooner the better, so we can make love with Uncharted: Golden Abyss. I would start saving up now. This fall, is going to a killer for our wallets!
When do you think Vita will be released?
