Sony Corp. announced Wednesday it will launch its next-generation video games console, PlayStation Vita, in Japan on Dec. 17, according to multiple internet reports.

The upgraded portable game machine will debut in Japan earlier than in any other country. The new device will go on sale outside Japan some time in 2012, the company said.

PS Vita to hit Japanese markets:- Apparently posing another challenge to its rivals, including struggling Wii game console maker Nintendo, Sony is releasing the next-gen PlayStation Vita during the year-end shopping season in Japan along with 26-game software.

"The attractiveness of this console, which will allow the public to further expand their concept of videogaming, will depend mostly on the imagination of content creators," said Hiroshi Kawano, CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, Sony Corp.'s Japanese game unit, at a press conference in Tokyo Wednesday.

The upgraded portable game machine will debut in Japan earlier than in any other country. The new device will go on sale outside Japan some time in 2012, the company said.

In Japan, Sony’s highly anticipated portable console Vita is expected to become a major competitor to Nintendo Co.'s 3DS game console, which plays games in 3-D without the need for special glasses.

PS Vita’s features:- Sony’s PlayStation Vita games console is equipped with a five-inch (12.7 cm) multi-touch OLED (organic light emitting diode) screen display, which is particularly suitable for high-definition graphics.

The 3D game console also features a pad on the back for "touch, grab, trace, push and pull" finger motions, as well as front and rear facing cameras.

Using the device, people can watch videos, listen to music, and gain access to internet sites and social-networking services such as Twitter and Facebook.

"This new device is packed with every possible function, and that's why we confidently call it the ultimate entertainment system," said Mr. Kawano.

Sony ties up with NTT DoCoMo to offer 3G model:- Japanese gaming console maker has teamed up with NTT DoCoMo Inc., Japan’s largest mobile phone carrier, to provide wireless service for the PlayStation’s 3G model.

In Japan, the PlayStation Vita will cost 24,980 yen ($325) for the Wi-Fi version and 29,980 yen for the 3G model, as compared to $249 and $299 respectively in the United States. The 3D game console also features a pad on the back for "touch, grab, trace, push and pull" finger motions, as well as front and rear facing cameras. The upgraded portable game machine will debut in Japan earlier than in any other country. Sony’s highly anticipated portable console Vita is expected to become a major competitor to Nintendo Co.'s 3DS game console, which plays games in 3-D without the need for special glasses.

In an effort to woo gamers, Sony is releasing 26 software titles alongside the Vita's launch. The video game titles will include Namco Bandai Holdings Inc.'s Ridge Racer, Capcom Co.'s Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 among others.
