Sony vague on Playstation Vita global ship dates
An ad for Blockbuster UK claims that the Playstation Vita will be available in that country on October 28. A reader sent the ad to IGN and has not been authenticated. A spokesman for Sony fell short of confirming the October 28 launch date, stating that the Vita would have a "phased global release" this holiday season.
Sony has so far avoided committing to specific dates for the PSVita launch. At this year's E3 conference the company would only say that the PSVita would be available in time for the holiday shopping season. [via IGN]
