PlayStation Vita to launch in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia on February 22, 2012

SCEA head Jack Tretton today announced the PlayStation Vita's US launch date on stage at the Web 2.0 Summit (yes, really) -- it'll arrive on February 22, 2012. As previously revealed, the Vita will come in two separate versions with two separate prices, one for $249.99 without 3G and a pricier $299.99 model.

The Vita launch date also puts release dates to a handful of other "launch" titles, such as Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. We're hopeful that more titles will get penned in after today's big news.

Update: "Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Australasia" too!
