Gamers have known for a while that the upcoming handheld console PS Vita will be arriving in North America next February. However, there has been no word on a concrete release date for the Southeast Asian region--until today. Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong recently announced that two countries in Southeast Asia will be getting a PS Vita a week after its release in Japan: Hong Kong and Taiwan.

SCEH said that the device will be on sale on December 23. The 3G and Wi-Fi model will cost gamers HK$2,780 ($358) in Hong Kong and NT$10,980 ($368) in Taiwan. The Wi-Fi-only model will cost HK$2,280 ($293) in Hong Kong and NT$8,980 ($301) in Taiwan.

The Vita will be out in parts of Southeast Asia this December.

The launch titles available for the system are Army Corps of Hell, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend, Dark Quest Alliance, Disgaea 3 Return, Everybody's Golf 6, Katamari Damacy No Vita, Little Deviants, Lord of Apocalypse, Michael Jackson: The Experience HD, Ridge Racer, Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen, Shin Sangoku Musou Next, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

No release date has been announced for the rest of Southeast Asia at this point in time. For more information on the device, check out GameSpot's coverage.

we shouldnt get excited over the launch of the console, but rather, the launch of good game titles because the console is only as good as its game library and so far, the Vita has yet to impress.
