The PlayStation Vita arrives in Japanese stores on 17th December, according to Sony exec Hiroshi Kiwano who broke the news today at Sony’s Tokyo Game Show TGS 2011 press conference. The standard Vita wi-fi model will retail for the princely sum of ¥24,980, while the 3G model goes for ¥29,980. I wonder how much will it cost here in the Philippines?
Sorry English/Western/Pinoy PSP fans, no mention of a Euro or US date but the Sony Vota is expected to launch in early 2012. In Japan, 3G users will be able to buy 20 hours of pre-paid online time for ¥980 (about £8), or 100 hours for ¥4980 (about £41)
