Sony Likely To Announce PS Vita Launch Dates at GamesCon August 16

Sony has announced the date for its big GamesCon press event when, more than likely (and assuming the information hasn't been leaked weeks in advance) it will unveil the formal release dates for the Sony PS Vita.

The date is Tuesday August the 16th, between 7-8PM and should feature some all-new game announcements and third-party information. Book the date, and wait for the likes of some noddy online store to blab about the launch date in advance.

While the last rites are out for the PSP, there may be a few new games on show that are worth your time and money.
