  • 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

PlayStation Vita

AV Club
20 February 2012
  • 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.

PlayStation Vita review

Engadget

  • 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

Sony PlayStation Vita Review

Digitaltrends
13 February 2012
  • Excerpt: If there were really any question before this, let’s go ahead and settle it right now: The PlayStation Vita is a much better piece of hardware than the Nintendo 3DS . That doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll enjoy it more, but in terms of hardware specs, there is really no comparison. The Vita is first and foremost a gaming system — and a good one at that — but also capable of a lot more. If you took the gaming capabilities away from the 3DS, it becomes almost useless.
  • Pros: Beautiful OLED display, Responsive touchscreen, Dual analog sticks, Powerful hardware means huge potential
  • Cons: Weak battery life, Browser lacks Flash or HTML5 support, Hidden costs boost the price

  • Pros: Amazing screen, Excellent controls, Well-designed OS, Good launch lineup, Amazing screen, Excellent controls, Well-designed OS, Good launch lineup

Review: Sony PlayStation Vita

Wired
26 January 2012
  • Excerpt: The most distinguishing feature of the PlayStation Vita , Sony’s new portable game machine, may go unnoticed at first glance. The thing Sony is banking on occupies a tiny little area on the face of the unit, roughly a square centimeter in size. Do you see it? It’s the analog joystick, the one on the right side, sitting just beneath the familiar PlayStation buttons.
