The Wi-Fi only Vita will hold a price tag of $250 while the 3G(AT&T)/Wi-Fi model will run $300
At the E3 Expo in June of this year, Sony announced its newest upcoming portable,
. For those of you who have been waiting to get your hands on one, Vita will be available to purchase in February 2012.
PS Vita offers social networking apps called "Party" and "Near," which allow users organize friend lists, discuss what you're doing online, and reveal where you are (much like Facebook's "Check-in").
A total of 26 games will be available on launch day, and another 100 are currently in production. A few games that Sony announced at E3 were "LittleBigPlanet," "Uncharted: Golden Abyss," and "Street Fighter X Tekken."
In addition, a new feature on Vita allows gamers to save their game on the portable system using "cloud saving," which can then be resumed on the PS3.
The Wi-Fi only Vita will hold a price tag of $250 while the 3G(AT&T)/Wi-Fi model will run $300. It will hit stores in Japan on December 17, 2011, and arrive in North America on February 22, 2012.
Many are wondering how well the Vita will be received, considering the Nintendo 3DS, which offers 3D features, was initially introduced with a $249.99 price tag and didn't sell so well. Nintendo decided to
slash the 3DS' price to $169.99
only four months after its release.

Seems like a pretty low price considering the iPhone is about $600.
"Paying an extra $500 for a computer in this environment -- same piece of hardware -- paying $500 more to get a logo on it? I think that's a more challenging proposition for the average person than it used to be." -- Steve Ballmer
