Official F1 game set for PS Vita
Sony's new portable gaming console will be launched along with a number of games, including official racing simulator F1 2011.

Sumo Digital and Codemasters are set to launch a PlayStation Vita version of F1 2011, the officially sanctioned F1 racing game which allows players to compete for one of the biggest prizes in motorsport.

It will be among the games released along with the UK launch of the new handheld console, which has already proven popular in Sony's native Japan.

The racing simulator will feature all the official courses, drivers and vehicles from the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship and allow gamers a variety of modes to play in, ranging from time trials to full seasons.

Furthermore, multiplayer will be a big part of the experience, with gamers able to race wheel-to-wheel with their friends in four-man competitions or use the Vita's internet connection to take on strangers over the web.

The PlayStation Vita is to be released in the UK tomorrow (February 22nd) and has a number of game releases lined up, including a version of the perennially popular FIFA Football franchise and an adaption of the critically acclaimed platformer LittleBigPlanet.
