Great news for athletes who love to game. As of Thursday, Feb. 9, the PlayStation Vita store is now online. Sony’s Official PlayStation store hit the ‘net offering 275 PSP, Mini and Vita titles for purchase and download right now.
The PlayStation Vita ($249) won’t be available in the U.S. until Feb. 22, but that doesn’t mean you can’t plan ahead.
