SCEA head Jack Tretton today announced the PlayStation Vita's US launch date on stage at the Web 2.0 Summit (yes, really) -- it'll arrive on February 22, 2012. As previously revealed, the Vita will come in two separate versions with two separate prices, one for $249.99 without 3G and a pricier $299.99 model.

The Vita launch date also puts release dates to a handful of other "launch" titles, such as Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. We're hopeful that more titles will get penned in after today's big news.

Update: "Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Australasia" too!
