The Vita’s Uncanny Valley

"There is a convention in computer animation known as “The Uncanny Valley,” which basically states that when a replica of a human looks almost, but not quite perfectly, like an actual human being, we as human observers are repulsed by it. The PS Vita seems to have fallen into an Uncanny Valley of its own. Or, maybe Sony threw it down in there." (PS Vita)

This op-ed covers some common tropes in anti-VITA arguements,
It will be interesting when that uncanny valley meets remote-play streaming of full PS4 games.

Now, when Vita doom articles are not so relevant, sensationalists are trying to find something else to nitpick on Vita. Are they have no life?

A reasonable end opinion:

"In the end maybe it’s up to us. As gamers, we need to just step back and realize it is a handheld. It’s never going to be the PS3. The Vita does, however, accomplish things the 3DS could never even hope to achieve. Maybe we should be happy with that? I know I am. Yet, I also know I’m constantly repulsed by how close it is to something more."
