Vita’s Original Release Date Revealed

News PS Vita Sony

As the dust settles on the Playstation Vita launch details, some interesting facts have surfaced from Sony. Sony Computer Entertainment president Hiroshi Kawano was talking to Weekly Famitsu and revealed that the Playstation Vita did in fact had another release date before December 17th was settled on. What was this date? December 3.

Kawano did provide a reason why the original release date was pushed back. Kawano and Sony in general wanted to make sure that there was enough stock for the launch. The first 500,000 will include 100 hours of free 3G coverage from NTT DoCoMo and expects those units to sell very quickly. Kawano revealed that DoCoMo was chosen due to the stability of their network.

The SCE president also reiterated that the Vita is a dedicated gaming machine first, not a smartphone. This is obviously a reiteration of the fact that the Vita is not in competition with that market.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
