The PlayStation Portable is quite possibly the greatest electronic device that I ever resented. I hated so much about the PSP, and not because I disliked the system -- I absolutely loved it. However, the lack of support from third parties, the awkward firmware updates, and a slew of other ancillary issues constantly threatened to ruin my experience.
With the PlayStation Vita, Sony has another chance, and it's a chance that I can only hope is grabbed with both hands. Dale North and I have each armed ourselves with a Vita ahead of its official North American launch on February 22, and I think it's safe to say that we both think it's capable of very great things, so long as it's allowed to flourish.
What about right here, right now? Just what will early adopters be getting themselves into, and will their $250 investment be a wise one? Naturally, we have all the answers.
