PS Vita Officially Launches in Ireland
Sony officially launched their new handheld powerhouse, the PlayStation Vita in the Irish Market last night with a taster of what the Vita has to offer in the Button Factory in Dublin.
While the console itself doesn’t go on sale until February 22nd, members of press and media along with contest winners got a chance to get hands on with the device and try out some of the features that Sony hope will help the Vita knock the Nintendo 3DS off its’ handheld throne.
The Vita has some impressive tech inside and out, a 5 inch OLED touchscreen on the front and a touch-pad on the rear for an extra dimension of gaming alongside accelerometer support and beefy internal specs really help to give the Vita an almost console-like experience on the go.
To top it all off, the Vita is launching with a whopping 22 games at launch including titles from massive franchises such as Uncharted, FIFA, WipeOut and others like Call of Duty and Assassins Creed in development.
The Vita will come as a Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi and 3G model here in Ireland and will cost €249.99 (RRP) or €299.99 (RRP) respectively.
Vodafone Ireland are supporting the Vita as its’ preferred partner for the 3G model and each 3G Vita will come with €10 credit on the Vodafone SIM card.
If you’re curious about the Vita, you can head along to a Vita Vault and try it out for yourself .
