"We've decided to give our most loyal fans an opportunity to own a PS Vita before everyone else," Sony said on its PlayStation blog.
Little Deviants is "a series of madcap adventures that allow you to have fun discovering and experimenting with the new PS Vita functions including rear touch and front touch, six-axis motion sensors, front and rear cameras and microphone," Sony said. "Little Deviants also offers an augmented reality shooter experience that lets players move around the real world firing shots and dodging enemies."
Sony unveiled the Vita, previously known as the PlayStation Portable 2, at this year's E3 gaming conference. The device will have an OLED touch screen, dual analog sticks, back-mounted touch panels, and front- and back-facing cameras. It will also include a number of downloadable social apps, including those for Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Skype. While 3G will be available through AT&T for $299.99, Sony will also offer a less expensive Wi-Fi-only option for $249.99.
The Vita will be released in Japan on December 17.
