Aleaked flyer from Blockbuster in the United Kingdom has revealed that the PlayStation Vita, or the Android-based Next Genera*tion Portable we are all waiting for, will be launching by October 28th this year. While Blockbuster has not confirmed the veracity of the flyer, it ties in with last week's rumours of the Vita emerging by the Fall. Speaking to gaming site IGN, Sony confirmed that the PS Vita will be launching with a 'phased global release' in the 'holiday season.' European pricing of the prod uct was also seen on the flier, at £229.99 for the Wi-Fi only version, and £ for the Wi-Fi+3G ver*sion. The price's rather extrava*gant compared to the already confirmed U.S. pricing of $249 and respectively.
Sony hopes to breathe some life into its aging portable plat*form with the PS Vita, it looks like it will have a strong chance - it has a list of major launch titles (revealed at E3 2011); the apps of the entire Android platform; as well as the hard*ware to back it all up - with a Tegra 3 'Kal- E1' processor quad-core Cortex A9-based processor and SGX543MP4+ graphics; as well as multiple input interfaces from gyro*scopes to touchpads, analog.
