Public to get first Vita hands-on at Tokyo Game Show

Monday, 25th July 2011 09:30 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan boss Hiroshi Kawano has said in a blog post that the public will get their first hands-on with PlayStation Vita at Tokyo Game Show in September.

Kawano said that plenty of booths will be provided at the show for people to try the handheld once known as NGP, adding that questions on the release date, launch line-up and more will be answered in due course.

The device, which was announced at an event in Tokyo in January, was formally detailed alongside software at E3 last month. Expect a further blowout in Germany next month during Sony’s press conference at gamescom.

Media at the event will be allowed to try it. But if you Joe Public is looking to have a go, you best book a flight and hotel for Toyko.

Thanks, Andriasang.
