Urgh. Now We Want The PlayStation Vita More Than Ever.

This is the packaging your shiny new PlayStation Vita will be contained within when you pick up the hardware next year. Sony's European PlayStation Vita product manager, Adam Grant, unveiled the boxart on the PlayStation Blog this morning.

In addition, Grant's outlined each of the PlayStation Vita's on-board apps. The post doesn't contain anything we don't already know, but it's worth a look if you're not sure what the "PlayStation Store" icon on the Vita's OS does. Hint: it takes you to the PlayStation Store.

Sony's also announced an Inside PlayStation Vita mailing list to keep you up to date with Vita announcements. You can sign up with your PSN account and should receive a Resistance: Burning Skies theme for your troubles. We haven't heard anything back yet. We're sure it's on the way.
