TechRadar - Updated: PS Vita Review

It's an absolutely brilliant handheld gaming console, held back from true greatness by a few small niggles. Said niggles will no doubt become less of a big deal over time - and the likes of Amazon are already selling the console for less than its list price.

Hardcore gamers with cash to spend should snap this monster up and fire up the big launch games with great haste.

For anyone else, it's a case of working out if you think it's worth it. If you just want to play 99p puzzle games, by all means stick to your mobile phone or tablet. But don't be fooled into thinking that your iPod is anywhere near capable of what the Vita can offer, because it's not. Vita is one of a kind. (PS Vita) 4/5

I just received mine today and the only thing that I'm still getting used to the is analog sticks. They're just a tad weird for me. I'm pretty sure I was the same way when I get the PSP for the first time. Other than that it's pretty awesome.

I agree, the analog sticks took a few days to get use to mainly because i often find myself trying to move them around more, they are very limited in motion but accurate at the same time so it never really feels sluggish.

Seconded, I had turn the sensitivity right up in the Uncharted demo.

The use of the motion for shooting I've actually found really useful (for once)- like I aim and track enemies with the right stick but do the final tweak into position by moving the whole screen- it really works a treat!

Happy Vita launch day. :D

edit: You played with the microphone game on Welcome Park? That thing had me in stitches for ages it's hilarious fun!
