While Sony has yet to confirm a concrete launch date on PlayStation Vita, that hasn't stopped retailer ShopTo from pinning a release date on the new handheld, in addition to stamping a price on many of its launch software.

Specifically, the retailer’s official website (spotted by MCV) has the Sony portable down for release on November 4, with games supposedly carrying an RRP of £39.99 each.

ShopTop also lists 20 launch titles, including WipEout 2048, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Super Stardust Delta, Monster Hunter Portable, LittleBigPlanet, ModNation Racers and BioShock.

Unsurprisingly, Sony’s response to the news reminds us that the company has "not made any announcements about software pricing, so that's just speculation".

Sony previously said that Vita will launch in Japan by the end of the year, though conceded other territories may have to wait until 2012. Stay tuned.
