PlayStation Vita tour set for 2012, providing hands-on preview for UK residents
PlayStation Access is paving the way for the PlayStation Vita to go on tour in anticipation for its Europe and North American debut in February. Beginning January 2012, PlayStation Access will be bringing the PlayStation Vita on the road as it makes its way across cities in the UK, giving fans the opportunity to get hands-on time with the newly released handheld. The tour will last several weeks, traveling through 4 major cities in the UK, including London and Manchester.
PlayStation Access will be setting up "Vita Rooms" equipped with PS Vita handhelds and the greatest gaming software as well. Along with the portable device, games like Uncharted: Golden Abyss, FIFA 12, Reality Fighters, MotorStorm RC, ModNation Racers: Road Trip, Little Deviants, Escape Plan, Super Stardust and Wipeout 2048 will be available to play.
Staff will be available at the Vita Rooms to answer any questions you may have about the new handheld, and lucky attendees will even get the chance to meet some of the developers behind the Vita and its games.
The tour starts in about two weeks. PlayStation Access has posted the dates for each city. These Vita Rooms will spend about a week in each city before heading off to the next town.
- Manchester - January 12 to January 18
- Glasgow - January 23 to January 29
- Birmingham - February 3 to February 9
- London - February 17 to February 26
The PS Vita is slated for a February 22, 2012 release. It is currently out in Japan, though the first two weeks have been disappointing in sales.
