The latest rumour puts the Vita down for a release before the end of the year in Japan and beyond, with a Western release to follow in March 2012.
GamaLive (French, via auto-translation) claims a source inside Sony on a November Asian release for the company’s new handheld, PlayStation Vita.
According to the informant, the device is expected to launch in Japan and Hong Kong close to November 12, with international media receiving hardware on the same date.
A full Western release is slated for March, before the end of fiscal year 2012 at the end of the month.
The report matches Sony’s vague comments on the matter, as well as industry analyst predictions and the platform holder’s usual hardware launch pattern, although the bit about media outlets getitng the hardware months in advance seems a bit odd.
