Sony PlayStation Vita (3G/Wi-Fi) Review

BigPictureBigSound
18 April 2012
  • Conclusion: With nimble operation and an attractive, graphics-driven interface, the versatile PS Vita pulls together the high-quality gaming, movies, music and more that we should expect from a modern multimedia device. A clear emphasis has been put on the games, with performance and an early variety that doesn't disappoint, but the movie/TV fare from a variety of studios and sources is a big selling point as well.
  • Pros: Big, beautiful OLED screen, Lots to play, lots to watch, lots to do, A new generation of interactivity and interoperability, Big, beautiful OLED screen, Lots to play, lots to watch, lots to do, A new generation of interactivity and interoperability
  • Cons: 3G buy-in and usage adds cost, as does highly touted cross-platform play, Backward compatibility quite buggy so far, No Flash support, where have we heard that before...?

  • Summary: If you are an addict who needs his dose of gaming on the go, then this device is definitely for you. If not, then you may want to take a look at picking up a full-blown console as that will cost you around Rs. 16,000 and give you a better overall package including better value for money and a larger library of games.
  • Pros: Fantastic 5-inch OLED display, Great power under the hood, Stellar launch lineup of games, Two analog sticks, Intuitive front and rear touch controls, CrossPlay with the PS3
  • Cons: Expensive, Expensive proprietary memory cards, Battery isn't replaceable, No video out

Hardware Review - 'PS Vita'

WorthPlaying
4 March 2012
  • Summary: PS Vita incorporates a 5-inch multi-touch organic light emitting diode as the front display and a unique multi-touch pad on the rear. Together with the front touch screen and the rear touch pad, PS Vita offers new game play experiences, allowing users to interact directly with games in three dimension-like motion, through "touch, grab, trace, push and pull" finger motions.

  • Excerpt: The PlayStation Vita invites first-time users to tap an icon on its home screen and take a trip to Welcome Park, which isn’t really a park. It’s a pure-white void where a disembodied female voice lives. “Welcome to Welcome Park,” she says. Then, with a few dull instructional games, she points out some of the device’s features. There are a lot of them.

AV Club
20 February 2012
  • Excerpt: The first generation of games for a console are driven, to varying degrees, by the console-maker’s desire to showcase the potential (read: justify the existence) of its gizmo. The trouble is that developers rarely understand a new device’s potential—it’s too new! That’s the catch-22 behind the PS Vita’s lineup. It consists of original games that are slavishly built around Vita’s headline features, and familiar sequels that incorporate those features as an afterthought.

PlayStation Vita review

Engadget
13 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The PS Vita is easily the most advanced portable gaming device to date, but will live and die by software support. It's off to a good start, if you can swallow the sticker price.
  • Pros: Superb 5-inch OLED touchscreen, Intuitive, snappy UI, Comfortable button layout and dual-stick controls
  • Cons: Unimpressive camera, Short battery life, Dust- and fingerprint-magnet
