Sony announces the launch of the PlayStation Vita in India
Here's good news for the gaming freaks. Sony's long-awaited PlayStation Vita portable game machine is set to hit stores in India. The company reportedly has announced that it will be launching PlayStation Vita in India at the same time as in the UK, on February 22.
The device is a touch-interface and motion-sensitive handheld seen as a successor to the PlayStation Portable. Gamers can connect over cellphone networks and Wi-Fi hotspots, and use GPS location-tracking technology.
The Vita has front and back cameras, a touchscreen in front, a touch pad on the back and two knob-like joysticks. It will enable gamers to play against each other using PlayStation 3 consoles over the Internet-based PlayStation Network, a system that was hit with a massive hacking attack in 2011.
Sony PlayStation Vita Wi-Fi only model is expected to be priced at Rs 19,990 and the Wi-Fi + 3G model at Rs 24,990.
According to reports, Sony has also announced 26 titles including games such as Lord of Apocalypse, Super Stardust Delta, Ninja Gaiden: Sigma, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Ridge Racer, WipeOut, and F1 2011.
