Back in June, Sony announced a PS Vita release date and price for both North America and Europe, marking the device at $249/€249 for the Wi-Fi model and $299/€299 for 3G. But the release date was left open, merely stating a global 2011 launch for the device, and never mentioning a United Kingdom price.

Now GameStop UK has set up pre-orders for PlayStation Vita, listing prices for both versions of the handheld: £209.97 for Wi-Fi and £244.97 for 3G models. What's more is GameStop slapped a release date up on the pre-orders, and if it is to be believed, the system could hit UK shores by the first of September.

Hit up the following link if you'd like to place a PS Vita pre-order at GameStop, and keep it locked to VitaGamr for the latest PS Vita launch details.
