PlayStation Vita to launch on October 28?

An ad from Blockbuster in the UK says that both Vita models for European release on Friday, October 28th. That's waaaay before the rumored early 2012 date. Was Sony trying to pull a fast one on us, or is this Blockbuster ad fake?

You can see a copy of the ad that we nabbed from IGN UK in our gallery. It looks legit. They hit up Sony for a comment and only got back that we would see a "phased global release" this holiday season. October is kind of holiday-ish, isn't it? That would certainly make for a Happy Halloween for me. 

Beating the Christmas shopping season would make for happy holidays for Sony as well. Between this and the recent release for Supremacy MMA listing a fall release for Vita, it looks like I had better start saving up my blogger money!
