Sony PlayStation Vita clears the FCC hurdle, gets tantailizingly close to US release

"That label up there may not look like much, but the WiFi test report shown after the break makes one thing exceptionally clear: Sony's PlayStation Vita just cleared FCC testing. For those unfamiliar with the process, this is widely regarded as the final step before a consumer electronics device is shipped to retailers here in the States, and given that "fall" date we've been hearing about, it sure looks as if Sony's on pace to keep its promise. So, you did save room on this year's wish list for yet another console... right?"

I am getting the Vita day one. So this is awesome news and lends a bit more credibility to my Amazon update showing Vita delivery estimate between Jan 9 - 15 on free shipping.

Janurary? Every rumor and even this article mentions the fall release that has been spreading lime wild fire across the Internet. Odds are that October 28th date just might be correct. I can't wait!

It's the delivery estimate for my order and I'm doing the slowest shipping possible but I expect a real announcement at TGS. However I'm really hopping for a release date before Christmas.

If the product is final, and SONY are sure that it's up to par in the next month or two, it would be absolutely STUPID for SONY, if they don't sell this during Christmas (November to December 26th).

Christmas is the best time to release this bad boy, every little kid and every mature man will be crying for this. So SONY should hurry up if they want to make sales fast, or else the VITA might not be so popular next year.

Last I heard it was pushed back or forward depending how you view such things to a January launch date.

January would fit the whole notion of trying to dump all the PSP stock that will no doubt plummet once the Vita begins making its rounds. I hate when companies pull these kinds of stunts on the non-gaming folk just trying to buy a cool gadget as a present for Xmas only to find out that they REAL new gadget released a month or two later...O_o

The only territory getting it this year is NA and that's because Its about 2 months from launch. FCC is the final step before retailers receive hardware products. and that at minimum has to be finalized and submitted for clearance to FCC's board of certification 2 months ahead of launch!. it's this year for the states

Hoping for a release date at Gamescom in the next couple of weeks.

I might not get the Vita day 1 but as soon as I have the cash I'll be buying it, it's great new updated hardware and it can play all the games I own for my PSP Go which to me is a HUGE deal.
