Sony has announced that as of today consumers will be able to get some personal hands-on time with the PlayStation Vita at all of GAME and Gamestation's 600 UK stores.
The top 150 stores will also feature a Vita dedicated Interactive Display Unit which will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
On top of that, every store manager working at the chain has been sent their own unit to demo both to staff and customers.
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,” SCE UK VP and MD Fergal Gara stated.
The beauty and clarity of the five inch OLED screen, the ergonomic design with the dual analogue joysticks, the interaction of the rear touch panel, all come emphatically to life. With our own Vita Rooms and now, with this opportunity for consumers to sample PS Vita in any of GAME or Gamestation's 600 specialist retail stores, the excitement can only continue to build.”
PlayStation Vita will launch in the UK on February 22nd.
