PlayStation Vita UK hands-on tour announced

'Vita Rooms' events coming to Manchester, London, Glasgow and Birmingham

UK gamers will be able to go hands-on with PlayStation Vita at a series of events to be held over the next few months.


The Vita Rooms tour will kick off at 63 Deansgate in Manchester from December 13 to January 18, before hitting Glasgow, Birmingham and London throughout January and February 2012.

Playable games will include Uncharted: Golden Abyss, FIFA 12, Reality Fighters, MotorStorm RC, ModNation Racers: Road Trip, Little Deviants, Escape Plan, Super Stardust and Wipeout 2048. Sony said in a press release that developers of some of the titles may be on hand to meet fans.

Vita will launch in the UK on February 22 with at least 12 first-party games. It hits Japan this Saturday, December 17.

PlayStation Europe boss president Jim Ryan said last month that PSP's focus on becoming a multimedia device confused people - and promised that Vita will be positioned primarily as a gaming device.
