Uncharted, new MotorStorm, WipEout headline.

UPDATE According to Sony's PlayStation Blog, Super Stardust Delta and Gravity Rush will also be available from launch.

ORIGINAL STORY: Sony has announced its first party PlayStation Vita launch line-up for Europe.

Among the SCEE-published titles on shelves from 22nd February are Uncharted: Golden Abyss, WipEout 2048, ModNation Racers: Road Trip and a previously unannounced MotorStorm title.

Here's the full list:

  • Uncharted: Golden Abyss
  • WipEout 2048
  • Reality Fighters
  • Little Deviants
  • ModNation Racers: Road Trip
  • Everybody's Golf
  • Escape Plan
  • Top Darts
  • Hustle Kings
  • Unit 13
  • MotorStorm RC

Sony exec Michael Denny reckons it's "one of the best launch line ups of any games console, ever launched."

Six augmented reality cards that showcase the handheld's WAAR (Wide Angle Augmented Reality) features will also be available at launch, to be used with a number of free games available from PlayStation Network.

Unlike the 3DS's single-card AR, the Vita can read up to six cards at once over a much larger play area. It also supports markerless AR that does away with the cards altogether.

Vita also offers Facebook, Skype, Foursquare, Flickr and Twitter applications, as well as Sony's own new geo-based social plaything Near.

"We're counting down the days to the launch of PS Vita. This launch is something we are all so excited about at PlayStation as that's when we can see PS Vita where it was made to be - in the hands of gamers," commented Denny.

A full list of third party Vita launch titles is yet to be announced. However, Namco Bandai has already revealed that it will have Touch My Katamari, Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen and console launch perennial Ridge Racer ready for 22nd February.
