PlayStation Vita Won't Launch in US and Europe in 2011

When the 3DS's price dropped, we wondered how the new low price point would harm the PlayStation Vita's sales this holiday season... it won't. And that's because the PlayStation Vita won't be launching before this holiday season, or in 2011 at all, at least not in the US or Europe. Japan, unsurprisingly, will get the Vita before year's end.
This news come straight from the source, SCEI chairman, Kaz Hirai. He states that this wasn't a delay, and that Sony is waiting to fill out their launch line-up before releasing the Vita in all territories, apparently learning a lesson from Nintendo's 3DS.
Hirai was then asked if the 3DS price drop would affect the Vita's pricing, but Hirai snappily replied that there is so much value already packed in the Vita, the price will stand.
Meanwhile, Daniel and I are searching for apartments in Tokyo. We can't wait any longer to get our hands on more Sound Shapes.
