This paper presents numerical studies of vectorial polariton solitons in semiconductor microcavities. In the simulation, polarization degree of freedom of the polariton fields is taken into consideration. In the bistable regime, bright and/or dark solitons are found to bifurcate from the homogonous solutions of the two circular polarization modes. The combinations of solitons in the two polarization directions can be bright-dark, dark-bright, bright-bright, and dark-dark.
