Bad news everyone — PlayStation Vita will miss 2011 in Europe and America.

Sony Computer Entertainment vice president Kaz Hirai made the pronouncement minutes ago. The console will still make it to Japan this year, however.

Hirai didn't go into much detail about the reason for the delay, but did say that it was to make sure the console was well-supported with software at launch.

There you have it: you can take Vita off your Christmas lists now.
