... And US?
If you were holding out hope for a holiday 2011 launch for the PS Vita - despite the previous strong rumours about Sony's handheld being pushed back into next year - I'm afraid that I'm about to ruin your Christmas. SCE Chairman (well, soon anyway) Kaz Hirai has confirmed that the PS Vita will not reach Europe until "early next year".
It gets worse, I'm afraid. The US release has also been pushed back into 2012, meaning that a Christmas import isn't going to be an option. Unless you ship one from Japan, that is, who will be receiving the device before the end of the year. [Associated Press]
