Geoff Keighley, the host of GameTrailers fantastic live coverage of E3 just had an interview with Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA), and some news came out of it.
Yesterday, Sony announced that PS Vita, the new Sony handheld will release in all regions by the end of the year. It’s always confusing whether they mean fiscal year or calendar year. In the interview, he specified that it was still not locked down completely as it depends on demand and production, but that it would be out by the end of the fiscal year in all regions. He also confirmed that Japan would get it by the end of the calendar year. This means Europe and USA might have to wait until March 2012 until getting their hands on PS Vita.
Keighley also asked about Agent, which was announced exclusively for PS3 on E3 2009. He couldn’t confirm whether it was still an exclusive, but it’s still in development and it will look great on PS3. I don’t mind multi-platform games, so this might not be a bad thing, but I really wanted to see what Rockstar can make focusing only on the PS3.
So there you have it, we might have to wait a few months longer for PS Vita and we might have to share Agent with the 360, but when they arrive, I’m sure we will have a good time with them.
