The new Vita was only released last week in Japan and instantly made an impact with over 60,000 units sold in just a week despite the competition from Pokémon and the removal of the OLED screen, so if you were wondering whether we would be getting a release in Europe or North America we may be in luck.
Eagle eyed Twitter user Brian Stephan got in touch with us and told us to search for PCH-2000 in the manuals section on the PlayStation website, and being the submissive types we did just that. What we found was a redirect to an English Language section of the Vita manual on the Japanese site. Explaining the basics, charging and all of the part names it seems to be a pretty good indicator of this coming to English speaking regions.
Could this be suggesting not only a western release, but a pretty rapid one? Or is this just for the benefit of English speaking customers in Asian regions?
Let us know what you think.
