The latest nugget to pass through the rumor mill today is that the release date for the Playstation Vita may have been leaked by Blockbuster!

The DVD and video game rental chain may have received the advance release date for Sony’s latest handheld console and instead of following normal embargo protocol, decided to publish a promotional flier and send it to IGN!

With a supposed release date of October 28th 2011, it’s a nice way to build up some excitement for Sony’s new console, possibly originally orchestrated by Sony’s PR to begin with.  If this is true, Blockbuster may be losing the favor of one of the biggest video game corporations in the world.
