PS Vita Release Date: Style Over Function

Sony has finally set an official release date for the new PlayStation Vita, the successor to the utter failure known as the PlayStation Portable. Instead of releasing it simultaneously worldwide, Sony has opted for the nationalist sentiment by making it available exclusively in Japan this December. In this day and age, you would think that the worldwide release is the way to go, especially since the Vita will be region free anyway from what I have heard thus far. The date when the new system will be available in North America and Europe is 02/22/2012. Awww, how cute but Sony, do you seriously think that gamers would find it amusing that you intentionally pick a cool date for the release instead of just selling it this December? I really don't think so.

And the dual-stick Nintendo 3DS will become available sometime before the above date?
