PlayStation Vita to only launch in Japan this year
Japan will be the only region to launch the PlayStation Vita by the end of this year. The system will not launch in the United States and Europe until ‘early next year’ Sony Executive Vice President, Kazuo Hirai has confirmed.
Also, in regard to the recent price drop of the Nintendo 3DS, Hirai told reporters: “We packed so much into the device and made it very affordable. There is no need to lower the price just because somebody else that happens to be in the video game business decided that they were going to lower their price.”
