Playstation announced that you can now preorder the Playstation Vita, basically the next Playstation Portable.
The Playstation Vita will hit the stores in late 2011, right in time for the holiday season. The Playstation Vita is available for preorder as a Wifi and a Wifi + 3G model. Right now the preorder page says the 3G Wifi is going to be released on December 31, 2011. However, if you are familiar with Amazon you’ll know that this means the official release date is unknown. Same goes for the Wifi PlayStation Vita.
The Playstation Vita with 3G is $50 more expensive.

The Playstation Vita with 3G is a AT&T exclusive. Do you use T-Mobile, then you might want to reconsider your preorder and switch to the Vita Wifi version.
A UK price for the Vita has not been announced.
WiFi support will give social Playstation gaming a new meaning. According to Sony, players will also be able to play together with PS3 owners via the Playstation Network.
We’ll keep you posted on possible preorder discounts or other places where you can preorder the Playstation Vita, but right now Amazon is the best preorder site with a price guarantee.
