I was really hoping for January but hey something it better than nothing!

oh come on!!! that must be a placeholder date because that is absolute last day of the first quarter and end of the fiscal year of Sony. They said they will release the Vita worldwide by the end of the fiscal year and march 31 is the last day lol. I hope it releases in late Jan or early February

Agreed, people are pretty stupid. Amazon and others realized the system wasn't coming out this year so they changed their made up date of 31/12/11 to the end of the 2011 FISCAL year 31/3/12

That's why I wrote "the release date APPEARS on retailer websites" and not "the release date is ANNOUNCED. It's a whole, big difference.

I actually called Gamestop both in the US and in Italy, and in italy they confirmed March 28 as coming directly from Sony. In the US they actually told me April 1st. So there's a slight discrepance with their website there. take it as you will.

I thought it was the fiscal year thing too at the beginning, but then I saw the march 28th date for Europe. And in Europe the fiscal year doesn't end on march 27th or 28th.

I too, like anyone else, hope that it'll come earlier than that.

But the date definitely changed today all over the place, before it was January the 1st.

@Abriael

Either way you say it its still misleading since there is no official release date. Therefore it should be placeholder date has changed even then shouldn't even matter, but instead now it makes it seems like it has been delayed when in reality it never had a release date to begin with.

Why even report this is you even admit it's just a placeholder and not real news.

Really? end of March. So far away. I'll still wait to see what Sony says but it's good amount of time to save up i guess after the onslaught in November.
