Prices are up for the PlayStation Vita, with Amazon UK now accepting advance orders.

As predicted, Brits will fork out more than the Americans, with prices for the Vita at £230 for the Wi-Fi version and £280 for the 3G-connected model.

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. ®
