Vita Rooms tour rolls on to Glasgow

Sony Computer Entertainment UK has opened a new Vita showcase in Glasgow, allowing consumers to try up the upcoming handheld.

The Glasgow event is part of the Vita Rooms tour, which creates temporary venues where gamers can learn more about PlayStation Vita and its games, as well as getting hands-on time.

The Glasgow Vita Rooms will be open from January 23rd to January 29th, before the tour moves to London. The capital city venue will open on February 16th and remain open until Vita’s UK launch day, February 22nd.

The first Vita Rooms saw Sony take over Manchester, where attendees were entertained by DJ Tim Westwood. Celebrity guests included England rugby star Mark Cueto, Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli, boxer Amir Kahn and Coronation Street’s Jack Thomas.

"PlayStation Vita is an amazing piece of technology – but the very best way to make people realise this is by putting it in their hands," said SCE UK’s vice president and managing director Fergal Gara.

"What I have taken away from the past week in Manchester is the level of anticipation and buzz that is building as the PS Vita launch approaches. We now look forward to Vita’s reception north of the border."
