With the Vita having been out in Japan a month now, it’s about time we got a US release date. According to AT&T, the 3G version of the new Sony handheld will be available on February 22nd.
Sony’s latest handheld gaming platform is being billed by the carrier as a product that is “going to change the gaming industry. Period.” Those are mighty bold words but, as we already learned, it’s a mighty bold device. You’ll be able to sign up for one of two data plans directly from the device — $15 for 250MB or $25 for 2GB.
The 3G version will be $299, or if you just want a Wi-Fi only version, that will be $249. AT&T also mentioned something about how the Vita “will be better with LTE”, so does that mean there’s a 4G version coming soon?
