While I agree it runs Uncharted amazingly well, you have to take into consideration these are full fledged open world games we're talking about. I love my Vita, and I know it can handle these kinds of games in the future when games start really looking amazing after devs have some time with the Vita. I'm wondering how well it'll do with draw distance.

I know Gravity Daze does wonders with the open world style by having things far away rendered with an abstract art style that makes it less demanding. So, I think if an open world game like GTA were to come out, it would be a little later down the road when they can really bring out the horsepower and figure out all the neat tricks and things to make games look that much better on Vita.

The PS Vita seems to handle Ports of xbox (original) games very well. I base this off of Ninja gaiden which was one of the prize gems of the xbox which was ported to Vita without drawback to my knowledge.
So one could say that theoretically the vita could pull of games to scale with Mercenaries, starwars battlefront, GUN, GTA:SA or even morrowind without drawback. Of course, those werent the prettiest games on the system, but im just throwing out there that its theoretically possible to pull off large open world games.

Vita launch games look way better than PS3/360 launch games so I can imagine Vita doing pretty much anything current-gen can do with a little tweaking.

The resolution and textures never have to been as high because of the screen size so yeah I think it will be able to do it just fine if devs put in the work.

Umm why not wait and see, both are in development as confirmed by a PS boss (uk or Ireland, I forget).

Absolutely no reason it couldn't provide a very similar experience to the consoles.

Edit: sorry not GTA, got it wrong it was AC and maybe COD he confirmed.

I was impressed with Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stores on the yes i say the Vita should handle a GTA title with ease
