If you want a better idea of what to expect when you turn on your shiny new PlayStation Vita, head over to the European PlayStation Blog .

Obviously, you get a chance to see the box, which we've got right here. But you also get to see the main screen's app icons; it's just a selection of the features and services Vita will offer upon the system's anticipated launch.

There's the Welcome Park, which will walk you through all the cool handheld features, the Party function (which lets you chat with friends any time you wish, even when playing games), Group Messaging, Photos, Music, Trophies, Friends, Internet Browser, and of course, the PlayStation Store, which every gamer should use.

But don't forget about Near, an "exclusive location-based gaming network" that lets you remain connected to all your PSN friends. You can share information about yourself based on your location, and hit the Update button to find new friends in your area. Through this function, you can even send and receive new levels, unlocks, and in-game items.

It's definitely a slick-looking device and we can't wait to get our hands on it. We just hope it doesn't mean anything that such an update is on the European Blog and not on the North American version…

They should've made the box more stylish 😛
Just makes the purchase easier for people who are on the fence.

The box looks kind of boring (why not let the system face straight forward?). I can't wait for the Vita tho 😀

The `Party Function`… maybe they`ll be updating the ps3 so we can talk like this on our Ps3s to other ps3s and vitas?

Not only the box, the on screen icons look ridiculous! Like something right out of a Nintendo console… I hope you have a choice of a different GUI. It looks like something my 12 years old nephew could put together with GIMP 🙁

What I imagine Xzibit's reaction to a Vita would be: "Yo dawg I got you this PS Vita so you can Playstation while you Playstation."
