PlayStation Vita Event

Posted by Mark

Sony is holding a PlayStation Vita event tomorrow in Dubai where they will be previewing their new handheld gaming system to the media. I was invited to attend the event but since my brother is a bigger gamer and runs his own gaming blog he’ll be going instead.

The event schedule is going to be the following:

11:00am: Media arrive and are greeted by PS VITA event staff
11:45am: Media are taken around the different stations for a quick tour
12:00pm: Event staff offer light food and refreshments
12:30pm: Sony PlayStation ME representative welcomes everybody, explains a bit about the USP’s of VITA and introduces SCEE speaker and game developer
12:45pm: Presentation starts followed by panel discussion and Q&A with all speakers
1:45: Post presentations one on one interviews
1:45 – 4:00pm: Hands-on with Vita

Since he’ll be having an extensive hands-on session with the device and attending the Q&A session, if anyone has any questions about the PS Vita or is curious about something leave it in the comments below and he’ll try to get them answered for you.

      *We can expect the device to be within the KD 80~90 range. Or possibly even above 100.

      *The PS vita uses a proprietary memory card with sizes ranging from 4gb-32gb. Form factor is similar to that of a micro SD card. But unfortunately, cards with PS vita printed on them can only be used

      *The device being 3G unlocked? Highly unlikely, the Japanese launch model was locked to NTT DoCoMo in Japan.

      *Game prices. Well they have been quoted to be under US$ 40. Here that could be translated to KD 12~15 per game card.

    Will the 3G version work without the sim card?

    I can only imagine the look on Patrick’s face when he realizes this is a Sony event, and not a Nintendo event.
