PlayStation Vita priced up for UK punters
Predictably poor exchange rates
Prices are up for the PlayStation Vita, with Amazon UK now accepting advance orders.
According to Sony's announcements earlier this week, buyers in the US can pick one up for $250 before sales tax. That converts to £150 - £180 if you add 20 per cent VAT. Typical, eh?

Sony has also confirmed the handheld will follow in the PS3's footsteps by being region-free, running games from any territory. In contrast, Nintendo's 3DS will only run older DS titles region-free, meaning any new quirky games launched solely in Japan, will work exclusively on Asian consoles.
Sony PlayStation Vita will hit shelves later this year. Do you think £230 is good value? Views below please. ®
