Sony have revealed details including the amount of megapixels and the video recording capabilities that will be featured in there next handheld the PS VITA
Wow. That's pretty good. The quality of picture on the screen will work very well, but the augmented reality is were the cam really shines. 120 frames...That beats Kinect right there in the augmented reality department.
It beats Kinect in the augmented reality department because it's augmented reality and not just your augmented living room. It's portable, it's that simple. No one who has ever done augmented reality has ever given a toss about 120fps.
Oh, you NEED to see this. http://n4g.com/news/783658/...
That's really not that bad such tiny lenses.
I was expecting more, maybe 5mp 7.1mp, or 8mp like most smart phones nowadays, but like everyone's saying it's for gaming not a digital camera replacement. But still it would have been great if it was.
@GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME Holy crap that looks amazing. Especially when they made a coffee mug overflow with water. This SmartAR tech makes Nintendo AR look like crap.
I'm excited for the AR games. Overly so, that graffiti app looked pretty neat. I hope there are lots more that involve it. They will probably bring invizimals back, I doubt it'll compete with pokemon but if they do it right it could be waaaay more interesting.

Ohhhh $H!T not again, i was hoping for a 5 Megapixel Camera that can record 720p Video at least at 30FPS, i wanted this to be everything i ever need in my pocket... I would pay $400 if it had an 8 Megapixel camera and Could Record 720p at 60FPS..... Ohh well cant win them all , this thing is pretty powerful, im Sure some modder with custom firmware can install a better camera for me and write some code to make it work, this sux.... I was soo Excited
Not really important IMO. It's a portable gaming console, not a camera..
You were expecting 8 megapixels and 720p recording from such small lenses? http://gupable.com/wp-conte... Cameras can upscale to higher megapixels, but I prefer keeping the native size for better quality.
@NathanExplosion, i believe Bull5hifT's post was made in sarcasm.
Hmmm I got it now. Sorry, that one bubble threw me off lOL
Could I be any more excited for this system?
Is this a Chandler Bing moment? ...lol I am so excited, and every bit of news about it is great news. Not one thing about this system has disappointed me. I think it'ss probably going to be the greatest piece of mobile tech this generation. I wish this thing could get released so Sony could get my damn money already.
A release date would help me survive the wait better.
Greatest handheld since gameboy??
gameboy sucked. The DS,PSP, PSV, and the 3DS absolutely destroy the gameboy.
i'm sorry what?
You must be a kid from this generation then. You would never understand the excitement when getting a Gameboy - the best handheld at that time.
Kinda hoped for 720p video recording with a camera at least about 3-5 Megapixels, oh well though from what your getting from the Vita already I think its worth it.
seems like the same camera tech as the PSEye, which is good (at least in terms of resolution and frame rates, I could be mistaken). I'm sure it'll compliment Skype very well.
Basically a PS EYE?
Just more icing on an already yummy cake. Should be good for some awesome AR games. The Graffiti app is nice. I could probably leave secret messages for my fellow VITA users to find. Sony could do a great scavanger or treasure hunt using it. You could follow clues within a certain area for example and find things like codes for games and DLC.
thats a really good idea....a message pops up saying..new uncharted map dlc code in your area...go to "gamestop, and check the 2nd isle"
At least they are keeping the price down. It has two cameras after all anyway, but I'm not buying it for that reason. In fact, I forgot it even had cameras. I must have been distracted by how amazing it is.
The VITA is going to replace my current PSP
you do if you thought your ridiculous comment was intelligent enough to warrant a post. Stop trolling.
the vita is going to replace my soul
This will be my first midnight launch for any console. Also my first pre-order, which I will be making in October. I haven't been this excited for a game console since the PS2.=)
Lol ,.. I am actually thinking I might pre-order and pay in front,.. The way the financial systems of Western societies are going,.. Basically international bankers are systematically collapsing purchasing power of our currencies so we can pay for their shitty lying and engendered investment bubbles,..Ad nauseam, ad infinitum... Now we lost even the slightest oversight we used to have. And they actually don't even hide it even more,.. They just blatantly have the balls to tell the sheep nowadays, what they are going to do to us,..because people are so fucking dumbed down and complacent.
At least its better than the 3DSs camera. But anyways if i want to take good quality pics i have a real camera that can do that.
nintendo have a 1280x720p 3DS HD coming next year yes there relaunching the 3DS with more power to handle the added HD resolution ect it will have 2 circle pads aswell and a HD camera 4 argmented reality eat that plus the screen will be a rumoured 4.3inch so very nice size but smaller than Vita but HD 720p who knows what they will call it 3DSNitro/3DSLite/3DS-HD
You realize this is SONY right? one of the leaders in Camera tech, Screen tech and every other thing you can think of. They out right said they thought about adding a 3D screen to Vita but it wasn't good enough at that time but since then Sony has produced a 5inch glasses free 3D OLED screen and they said 3D might be a possibility in the next VITA. Circle pads are not Analog sticks, i can see Sony adding a 720p Camera to Vita if they can find one that records at 60fps or 120fps at a lower cost. They wont be making the mistake of selling it above $299.99. VITA is already perfect as it is and the only 4 things i can see Sony adding in a redesign is longer battery, a 3D OLED screen, an HDMI port and higher resolution cameras. And that is total BS, i can see a redesigned 3DS with a second circle pad but the camera resolution will stay the same, everything els will stay the same, just a little bigger than it already is. Developers will not be redoing there games over to fit the new screen resolutions so they will just scrap it.
is 480p good guys? I was expecting 720p since ipod's these days have 720p camera but then again 480p isnt bad.
