[NGP] Playstation Vita now with price tag



So we are keeping the tag NGP, but if you didn't knew already Sony renamed it to Playstation Vita, and now with a price tag and specifications.


According to Destructoid, the specs remain the same as previously mentioned but don't forget there are two models, one with only WiFi (which is 249 Euros (or dollars)) which is the same price of the 3DS which is a smart move for Sony, and the WiFi and 3G model which is 299 (€/$). 
The release date of the handheld will be in the 2011 holiday season in all regions so remember save um some "moolah" for it.

A special announcement made was the Party system which allows players to talk via headset or the built in microphone in special game rooms, much like Xbox Live's party System. They confirmed, again, the Near system which is also similar to Xbox Live's friend feature.

For American users will have AT&T exclusive service for the handheld which now rules over the 3G connectivity, which from what I've seen from multiple sources, it sucks.
