Sony PlayStation Vita, first unveiled in a press conference in Tokyo last January as Sony NGP, is now officially available in Japan and is arriving in the United States by the 22nd of December.

Sony PlayStation Vita runs on a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and 512 MB of RAM, and features a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen OLED display with qHD or 960 x 544 resolution, dual analog sticks (as opposed to those nubs on the current generation PSP), WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity support, optional 3G, GPS, front and back VGA cameras, a rear-mounted touchpad, a mobile browser, an electronic compass, accelerometer and a six-axis gyroscope motion sensor similar to that of PlayStation Move.

As I've earlier disclosed on TP, Sony PS Vita is compatible with PlayStation Suite and is fully backwards-compatible with content and downloadable games from the Sony PlayStation Store.

There are upcoming games made specifically for Sony PS Vita like Wipeout 2048, Gravity Rush and Little Big Planet - among many others, that will take advantage of the new features found in this new generation portable gaming device, including its rear-mounted touchpad.

When it arrives in the US this week, the Wifi-only model will sell for just $ 249.99 while the 3G variant will have a $ 299.99 price tag.

No word yet from Sony Philippines on Sony PlayStation Vita's official release date and pricing details in our country. I'm guessing though that it will arrive here by January or February 2012 with a Php 12,000 - Php 15,000 price tag for the Wifi-only model.
