Sometimes, it’s nice to be right. Sony President & CEO Jack Tretton used the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco to announce the North American, Latin American, and European release date of their Vita handheld. While the venue of the announcement doesn’t make much sense to me either, we now know that the Vita will be available in stores on February 22, 2012.
The Vita will be available in two different versions, a Wi-Fi only edition (priced at $249.99) and a Wi-Fi/3G version (priced at $299.99). They weren’t ready to talk specific launch titles, but they did let us know that there are over 100 Vita games in development including Sound Shapes, Resistance: Burning Skies, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Capcom’s Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Vita, and Activision’s Call of Duty Vita.
