    Details about Sony's new handheld have been trickling out for months in the form of spec sheets and fantastic footage of its quad core capabilities. All that, and we still didn't know how much she'd cost or when we could get our grubby paws around one. Thankfully for those tuned in at E3, said mystery is a mystery no more -- the Vita will be listed at $249 for the WiFi-only model, or $299 for the 3G version. Sony's Kaz Hirai confirmed will be available exclusively through AT&T, with both models shipping worldwide toward the end of 2011. For those of you camped out overseas, prices are set for ¥24,980 (WiFi) and ¥29,980 (3G) in Japan, while those closer to that other pond will see tags of €249 and €299.

    The device, also known as the PS Vita, offers up six-axis motion sensors, dual analog controls (proper ones, with thumbsticks), front- and rear-facing cameras, an OLED touchscreen, and a touchpad on the back, too. The company showed off a number of top-tier titles, including Uncharted: Golden Abyss, a hack-and-slash RPG called Ruin, a new ModNation Racers, LittleBigPlanet, and Street Fighter x Tekken, each showing off plenty of motion and touch interactivity... things that we couldn't be more elated to try for ourselves in due time. They're all looking quite good, and honestly a bit more advanced than what the 3DS has delivered so far -- for the same money.[/p]

    Sweet. I'm not going to buy it personally, but notable tempers will find that price just right. Though why they went through AT&T is silly. They already are hard pressed from the iPhone.

    Nintendo doesn't really have much of a choice now. Either lower the 3DS' price or lose this generation.

    Yeah, Nintendo is gonna have to drop that price to at least $200 to compete with the NGP now.

    Not even, there was a pretty significant gap between the PSP and the DS. This is way too close for comfort for them.

    I mean Nintendo will still do well because it's Nintendo and their fanbase is too dedicated, but this shit's amazing.

    Once the Square Enix line-up is announced I'll just shit myself. Dissidia 013 anyone?

    Dissidia 013? Nahh, I don't think a 3rd would help the series at all. A remake would be nice, though.

    And Nintendo will only make it through with fanboyism this generation; They REALLY need to step it up. Now.

    They're not gonna make Dissidia 013. The "storyline" doesn't allow it and I'm sure SE wouldn't waste money on that when they could just re-release Dissidia 012 in a higher resolution and with online play for Vita. Which I'd probably buy on day one.

    Sadly no words about possible hardware limitations of the WiFi-only version.

    While I really don't like Sony, Nintendo really dropped the ball on this one.

    Nintendo doesn't need to drop the price right way. The general public out there will decide what they want.

    Well the price seems much better for what I'm getting. I bought a 3DS but looking at it I kinda feel I paid too much for it.

    Now I hope it get some decent launch titles and not end up like the 3DS.

    Sweet. I was getting tiered of hearing all of that "please put your 3D glasses on" crap.

    Now, all we need is enhanced security and some good launch titles...

    Nintendo goofed up with the 3DS price.

    PSVita got it right, buuttt that's still not enough to make me buy a Sony product again.
    3DS still gets my cash.
