Sony Europe have sent out email newsletters locking the PS Vita in for a ‘February / March’ release next year here in UK and the European mainland.
There’s multiple languages of the newsletter, natural enough given that this is SCEE, and all but the UK one mention those two months specifically. The UK one says ‘early 2012‘.
The posts on the PlayStation site are a few days old now, and naturally these are subject to change, but expect more on this during Sony’s press conference this evening, which kicks off at 6pm BST.
We’ll have everything here on TheSixthAxis as it happens.
