The news we’d all been waiting for has finally come. The next handheld from the house that Sony built has an official release date and price for Australia. The PS Vita will launch next year across Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Australasia from February 22, 2012. The pricing is as follows, the Wi-Fi only model will set you back AUD $349.95 while the Wi-Fi/3G model will retail for AUD $449.95. No word yet as to which telco will support and carry the 3G plan but more on this as it comes to hand.
