Sony PlayStation Vita not launching this Holiday Shopping Season

The Sony Playstation Vita was breaking cover early June at the E3 2011. Sony pretty much unveiled everything about the new powerful PSP successor featuring stunning 5-inch OLED touch screen and ARM Cortex A9 four-Core CPU. The Vita is going to be the most powerful portable console, but as I already said in this report that fails to dazzle because of the boring design. Now there might be another reason why the Vita could be DOA. According to Bloomberg , Sony's Kazuo Hirai said today that the Playstation Vita will not launch this Holiday season in the United States and Europe. Only Japan will get the Vita before the end of December. This actually contradicts a leak we fatured yesterday for Best Buy UK. There we saw a release date of October 28 for the PS Vita.

Looks like Sony did not learn a thing from what just happened to the Nintendo 3DS . Nintendo had to cut the price by 40% because initial sales have been disappointing. With the new huge trend of mobile gaming on smartphones, portable gaming consoles need to find new ways to compete. A Spring launch is not helping to compete. Consumers are much more motivated to buy a new console for Christmas than in Spring. Now their money will go either in buying the new low-priced 3DS, an iPad or iPhone 5.

By the way, Amazon is still offering to pre-order the Vita for $249.99.
