The Playstation Vita Is Now Available Worldwide

Sony PS Vita News

The Playstation Vita has finally seen a release worldwide and is now available for the gaming public. Today saw Australia and New Zealand embrace the new handheld following the release of the handheld in North America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East on the 22nd of February. The PlayStation Vita offers uncompromised portable gaming experiences and provides the convenience of a small yet powerful device that you can use on the go. The launch draws on years of PlayStation gaming expertise and leadership; it is the fifth major hardware launch and the second portable launch for Sony Computer Entertainment Australia.

A hardware launch is never complete without the software to back it up. The Vita offers a library of over 20 games for gamers to choose from. These include first party offerings including Uncharted: Golden Abyss, WipEout 2048, Modnation Racers: Road Trip and Little Deviants. Supporting the first party line up is a great selection of third party games from Ubisoft, EA, Capcom and Sega, to name a few. The Vita doesn’t lack in social applications that people now expect from a portable device, such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. In addition, exclusive PS Vita social applications like “Near”, “Party” and “LiveArea” will provide gamers with new ways to connect with each other.

The Playstation Vita retails for AU$348 for Wi-Fi only and AU$418 for Wi-Fi/3G. Vodafone is the official carrier of the 3G Playstation Vita, however, the Australian model is not locked to one network.

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!
