[UPDATE: Memory Card prices have been located and added]
So, who’s ready to part with their cash? If you’re fanatical about your gaming, then you have no doubt set your eyes on the latest handheld console from Sony, the PS Vita, which hits our shores next year in March.
Early reports on the device seem positive, and with two flavours, one in Wi-Fi and the other in 3G, you can bet that there is some serious hardware underneath the hood of that console. But how much will it cost you?

Of course, all the cool kids want unlimited access to international multiplayer gaming, so the 3G version will be a must for the hip crowd. Prices so far are under the R4000 range, with retailers listing the device for:
Kalahari.net: R3299.95 (Pre-order price, regular price R3799.95)

Now, bear in mind that these prices are highly subjective to change, much like a central African presidential term/dictatorship/regime, so don’t be surprised if the price starts rising or dropping. There’s no word yet on prices for games or memory cards, but we’ll keep you up to date the moment we get the information.
