GameStop has playable Vita demo stations

Are you counting down the days until the PlayStation Vita is available? For those not keeping track, it’s 12 days for the First Edition Bundle and 19 days for the standard package.

But if you must get your hands on Sony’s next handheld right now, head on down to your local GameStop as they’ve announced they’re the first retailer to offer Vita demo stations. 3,300 GameStop stores have constructed the demo stations, which contain the following eight games:

  • Escape Plan
  • Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational
  • Little Deviants
  • FIFA Soccer
  • ModNation Racers: Road Trip
  • Uncharted: Golden Abyss
  • Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition
  • Wipeout 2048

To further entice you to purchase the handheld, GameStop plans to sweeten the pot by giving an additional $25 in credit when you trade-in a DS, 3DS or PSP system towards the purchase of a Vita.

Get PS Vita a week early with First Edition bundle

You know how everytime a new system launches, some analyst spouts off about how Nintendo or Microsoft or Sony could have set the price so much higher because early adopters will pay it? Well, Sony has decided to test this theory with the PlayStation Vita.

The Vita First Edition bundle will be released on February 15, 2012, a week earlier than the Vita’s official launch date, and is now available for pre-order in the US and Canada. To get their new Sony handheld a week early, gamers will be charged a $50 premium over the standard packages, though the First Edition bundle will include a bunch of goodies not found in the regular Vita box:

Vita 3G + Wi-Fi First Edition Bundle (US Only): Includes a Vita 3G + Wi-Fi system, a limited edition case, 4GB PS Vita Memory Card, and Little Deviants game. Priced at $349.99 (MSRP).
Vita Wi-Fi First Edition Bundle (Canada Only): Includes a Vita Wi-Fi system, a limited edition case, 4GB PS Vita Memory Card, and Little Deviants game. Priced at $299.99 (MSRP).

I’m just surprised Apple didn’t think of it first.
