Vita is region-free, world rejoices

Shuhei Yoshida, the President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, has taken to Twitter and confirmed that the Vita will be region-free when it releases in Japan later this year. That’s good news for early adopters and even better news for fans of the systems’s quirky Japanese fare, much of which will never make it to America.

The Vita will be released on December 17 in Japan in two different flavors: a $390 3G/wi-fi model and a $325 wi-fi model. An American release date has yet to be announced, but early 2012 is the current assumption.
