PS Vita Coming Out Date Announced

Well I know what month is going to be tight financially. February 22nd is when the Playstation Vita will hit Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Australia, and (via Destructoid) the United states as well. The wifi only model will cost 250$ and the 3G model, the one you do not want, will cost 300$. No word as to what the international release dates for the games are but seeing as how Japan will supposedly have 26 games at launch I can only assume the international release will be larger. All the final specs have been released as well if you are into that stuff. I am going to assume it is all still operated by dreams and magic.

Below is a final list of the specifications.
