Sony has arranged for you to be able to see the PlayStation Vita first-hand between now and December 30th, while you’re out doing your holiday shopping. Below is a list of locations where you can check out Sony’s next-gen handheld in person:

  • Chicago: Gurnee Mills, 6170 West Grand Ave., Gurnee, IL
  • Dallas: Grapevine Mills, 3000 Grapevine Mills Parkway, Grapevine, TX
  • Los Angeles: PlayStation HQ, Third Street Promenade, 1228 3rd St., Santa Monica, CA
  • Atlanta: Discover Mills, 5900 Sugarloaf Parkway, Lawrenceville, GA
  • Washington, DC: Potomac Mills, 2700 Potomac Mills Circle, Prince William, VA

Games on hand for the demo tour should include Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Sound Shapes and Wipeout among others.

To refresh your memory, the PS Vita offers a large 5-inch OLED touchscreen with rear touch controls, front and rear cameras, dual analog sticks, Wi-Fi (and 3G options), as well as a blazing fast CPU/GPU which provides console-quality graphics in a handheld. Early reports are that the screen on these things are really a beautiful sight. We’re all so used to the smaller 2.5 to 4 inch screens on our smartphones and earlier handhelds, so a 5-inch OLED screen sounds pretty spectacular.

The PS Vita hits stores in Japan later this week, and should be landing at U.S. retailers on February 22, 2012, priced at $249.99 (USD) for the Wi-Fi version and $299 for the Wi-Fi/3G version.
