Many large-cap Japanese ADRs are up strongly, and Sony (SNE +5.1%), whose shares closed on Wednesday near an 18-year low, is among the top performers. The company announced the European launch titles for its upcoming PlayStation Vita handheld console earlier this week, and is hinting the PlayStation 4 will arrive around the same time as the next-gen Xbox (MSFT), which is expected to hit stores in 2013.
