Good news!! It’s been a long time coming, and the most exciting news is Sony’s PlayStation Vita finally goes up for pre-order at Amazon.com. Sony’s PlayStation Vita, previously codenamed “Next Generation Portable” (NGP), is the long-rumored successor to the PlayStation Portable hardware series. The product pages for both the WiFi-only and 3G editions list a release date of December 31, projected for a holiday 2011 release. Vita retains the familiar general form of the PlayStation Portable hardware series while dramatically improving on virtually every aspect of its use with powerful and exciting features.
