Sony is set to bring playable PlayStation Vita demo units to UK cities ahead of the handheld's launch on February 22, the company has reported. Like Nintendo's 'Believe Your Eyes' 3DS tour before it, Sony is bringing 'Vita Rooms' to Glasgow, Birmingham and London throughout January and February 2012 – kicking off at 63 Deansgate in Manchester from Friday 13th to Wednesday 18th January.
Those who make their way down will get chance to go hands-on with the Vita and play some of the device's most anticipated launch-period titles; including Nathan Drake's latest adventure in Uncharted: Golden Abyss, FIFA 12, Reality Fighters, Motorstorm RC, ModNation Racers: Road Trip, Little Deviants, Escape Plan, Super Stardust and Wipeout 2048.
Keep an eye out on Facebook.com/PlayStationAccess for information on how to register for the event – details will be coming “very, very soon” according to Sony. New Rising Media will be there.
