Only one more month to go before the PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) official launches here in Singapore on February 22. The WiFi-only model will retail for $399, alongside 27 launch titles like the English version of BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend, and Ninja Gaiden Ʃ Plus (Sigma Plus).

Most of these games will be available both on retail shelves and also in digital form, downloadable through the PlayStation Network store. A few titles, however, are either download-only or sold exclusively in retail. A full list of games and details can be found below.

Pricing for games have not yet been announced, but retailers here have been selling PS Vita games parallel-imported from Hong Kong for approximately $69 on average. Parallel-imported PS Vita units are sold here for roughly between $500 and $650.

Gamers looking to keep their shiny new portable scratch-free and otherwise in tip-top condition can also opt to pick up an official PS Vita accessory pack, sold separately, which includes a travel pouch, screen protector (with a plastic overlay that fits over the Vita’s buttons to help with alignment), memory card case, wrist strap, and cleaning cloth.

Other accessories include memory cards (4GB, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB), a charging cradle, and in-ear headphones that will work with the PS Vita’s voice chat functionality. Pricing information to come later.

Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend

Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend, one of the launch titles for PlayStation Vita.

Personally, I’ve had my PS Vita since the Japanese launch last year, and my experience with it has been nothing but peaches – despite media reports of severe freezing issues and other user complaints.

Sony Computer Entertainment has since released three firmware updates to address the problems, but at the end of the day, nothing is as reassuring as local support and warranty.

Will you buy a PS Vita at launch? Which Vita games are you most excited about?
