With excellent graphics, a superb 5in screen, dual-analogue and touch screen controls and a host of other goodies, PS Vita narrows the gap between console and handheld, and reminds you why a dedicated mobile gaming device is a good idea.
Can't come soon enough. I can't believe I'll have to wait until 2012 to get it. Why Sony? Why?!!
ad for vita
Sony cant just show a product and release it on the same day, well that would be really stupid
makes me laugh when they say it aint close to ps3 or 360! or the details on it is abit rubbish!! u know what i say to that!?! dont u still think that the game might still be in development maybe??
I am not 2 worried about battery life because i am pretty sure that Sony will shove a pretty potent battery in this this. I mean its a 5 inch handheld and it isnt paper thin so theres plenty of space for a big batter. I predict that the Vita will have around 8 hours worth of battery life which is a lot better than 3 or 4 hours that the 3DS has (with everything on and maxed) Anyways we have to wait until TGS to find out.
I think the oled screen too would help increase battery life, and also battery technology has come a bit far since the psp.
Battery tech is still the same, just look at phones. Only difference is there are bigger ones around.
We do have now more reliable and stable lithium based batteries and they pack quite a punch for their small size. Manufacturing processes and materials with certain batteries do get better over time.
"PS Vita narrows the gap between console and handheld" That gap should be as wide as the ocean. More original games for all systems instead of the ports, multiplats, repackagings we keep seeing. The amount of new games in the market hasnt been this low since the crash
Maybe for the 360 & pc..
Maybe if everyone would support the new stuff instead of buying the same thing over and over again developers would be more willing to make other games. But when you buy the same FPS every year and blow off all the games that attempt to try something new this is what happens. Why do anything new and exciting when you can make the same crap over and over again and people still buy it.
I really dont know why people are saying the portable market is dieing. The 3DS sales are above what the original DS sales were in its first year even with its high price and the price drop will now see it sell even quicker but they are also forgetting the DS and PSP are still selling very well because of the amount of games that are available for them and Pokemon has just come out for the DS so this will of helped people pick a DS over a 3DS. Both the PSV and 3DS will be fine and both will sell very well. I have a 3DS and can not fault the Device at all and never had a problem with the 3D screen or battery life. The only thing I do with the 3DS over my PSP is I put the 3DS back on the dock so its always charged where the PSP gets charged when it is flat but that is because it has not got a doc. If Sony release a doc for the PSV I ill end up doing the same with that. Im also glad Nintendo and Sony are looking in different directions with how they want there handheld devices to play games as it gives us more choice and reason to get both console just like 360/kinect PS3/Move and Wii/wii U next year. Even though the games industry has lost some big names this gen I think the home and portable industry are going to have some big times ahead of them with what we are seeing form Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony.
Guys wtf is that? Is that F1 game? looks f amazing!
I said i didn't want it on a previous post.......... i lied.
Excellent piece of hardware first batch of games look incredible for a handheld and can only get better. Nintendo have been dominating the market for handhelds for years but all those kids are growing up (me included ;)) economic situations don't help so if people are going to invest in a handheld gaming expierience playstation vitas technical specs features. More diverse gaming expierience (child to adult) better graphics. I dont know how long people will want to fork out a weeks wage on below par graphics with a touch screen and week game line up. I saw it coming its ok to be having fun nintendo but we got to be serious sometimes. :( misses the days of pokemon on gameboy colour hehe
Yes, yes, it's all good. Now can Sony please release it already?
Kids in the back yelling "is it out yeeeeetttt?" This is my most anticipated system yet. I feel like a kid hoping that their christmas or birthday present is being kepted a secret. For some reason I keep hoping sony will announce at the tgs that US and EU will get a release date of december 2011. After all its been in production since it was patented... I hope.
I'm really hyped for this to. I actually had a dream about it a few nights ago. How sad am I?! First time I've ever dreamed about a console.
@N3Far Lol your not the only one, but what was crazy about mine is that I was playing a newer version of Locoroco with some random chicks.......While I was questioning myself "How'd did I get one, and why'd Sony release it so quick?"...... I hope it was a premenation
Sony is prolonging our suffering by keeping quiet on the exact release date. Then they will bring us more pain (from our wallets) on the day the PSV is released. lol!
I can't wait until this beast is finally released!! It will be like a portable PS3. :D
