TGH: Hands on with PSVita

TGH Writes: The Sony booth was awash with people all fighting to get a chance to salivate all over the shiny new Sony handheld, Playstation Vita. Already its unusual name, that means life in Latin, has become commonplace in the videogames world and now the device is turning heads left, right and centre. Many people clambered to get to the games they wanted to see and touch, not to belittle the offerings for the PSV on launch, TGH was more interested in letting you guys know about how the device feels itself.

I want to get my hands on the PSVita!

What I wouldn't do to give it a try!

FanOfGaming4693d ago

Literally foaming to play this

Pedantic914693d ago (Edited 4693d ago )

Wow, that's a lot better than i expected.

Just gotta see what they got in stores for TGS before i plunk down 2500 SEK (a whoppin' 390 USD !)

CloseSecond4693d ago

Not sure I want it too lite to the point where it feels flimse. The Go was a nice weight and felt sturdy. I wish Sony would use more aluminum and less plastic for their cases.

Sharkie434693d ago

Looks mediocre at best to be honest.

PlayStation Vita Issues Have Tarnished the Legacy of an Otherwise Great System

The Vita is a well-designed system, albeit one that Sony left for dead as soon as it hit its first bump in the road. If it weren't for a couple negative quirks, it might have even been one of the best handhelds ever made. Unfortunately, those quirks have turned into awful problems as of late, and have only served to tarnish the legacy of what has otherwise been an excellent cult system.

I like the Vita a lot. I actually blame Sony in putting less faith in it than it should

Prince_TFK2483d ago

I love my Vita. Fantastic system. The screen totally destroy the 3DS. Too bad that Sony drop the support as soon as the sale slow down.

I wonder what would had happened if they had used SD card instead of that expensive card.

PhoenixUp2484d ago

I'll always find it hilarious how even when Sony seemingly abandoned their second handheld, Vita still outsold Wii U which was heavily supported by Nintendo.

Never underestimate the power that third party support can do for a platform.

freshslicepizza2484d ago

Which cleary shows why it's good to have a nice balance between the two. Sony knows this but some of their fans seem to only want to talk about exclusives.

Prince_TFK2483d ago

I thought it is all about exclusive here on n4g? So third party is only important as long as we don't talk about Xbox? Oh the amount of spin.

rainslacker2483d ago

Sony had 3rd party support, and still has it to this day on the Vita. IN fact, it's about all they have. They even had some pretty good 1st party support in the first few years.

But no one would give them credit for that support, and "vita has no games" was the constant mantra being spewed on every vita article until Sony finally dropped all its meaningful support for the system.

Games are what sells a system. Doesn't matter if they're multi-plat or exclusive. Sony had a lot of both, they just failed to get more of the really big exclusives like they got with the PSP. PSP didn't really take off until they started getting things like Metal Gear or GT. When they looked like they were finally going that path, they pretty much gave up on it, and it's kind of sad, because it's a great system.

got the vita although it was dead on arrival. mobile gaming on dedicated machines is deadder than dead. oh wait, the switch is doing stellar, even rivaling the ps4, the xbox and the new xoxbox. ok, let's forget for one second about the absolute market dominator: when was the last time you saw someone playing his or her dedicated machine outside? I can't really remember. what I'm seeing everyday though is that everybody and their little daughter got smartphones when they are on their way to go somewhere.

Vita was and still amazing. Playing uncharted and gravity rush on it was simply epic. Such a shame Sony gave up on it

InTheLab2483d ago

Was...perhaps. still? Those games came out years ago. The vita is a terrible handheld that Sony pushed out with Insanely overpriced memory cards and a handful of games. It was amazing for maybe a year then reality set in.

Sony only cares about the home console. Vita, PSP, Move, and now the PSVR all rely on 3rd party support after Sony pushes them out the door.

DivineBliss2520d ago

The article is about Enso which was released yesterday.

ILostMyMind2520d ago

So Vita dies, maybe for a good cause. Now Sony can launch its next handheld.
