Sony PlayStation Vita Review

  • 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

  • Conclusion: The PlayStation Vita is one pricey bit of kit. But if you can justify the high costs, it is arguably the best handheld gaming experience around.
  • Pros: From the moment you switch it on, you realise the PlayStation Vita is unlike any handheld before it. Graphically it’s the most powerful there has ever been. Its OLED touchscreen is a sight to behold, giving games a beautiful console-like sheen. The touchscreen itself works wonderfully well and is highly sensitive, with no noticeable lag whatsoever. Just try playing Uncharted: Golden Abyss and attempting not to fall in love with its display. In fact, the device overall...
  • Cons: The price to pay for a handheld that offers console-quality graphics is a high cost. The PlayStation Vita costs up to £279 for a 3G version - just as much as a fully-equipped home console, more in fact. You could purchase an Xbox 360 for the price of a PlayStation Vita and still have enough to purchase a game. The memory cards, too are incredibly costly. Expect to pay up to £27 for an 8GB memory card, or £37 for a 16GB memory card. Games don’t come cheap either. Flags...

  • 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
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

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

Sony PlayStation Vita review

theverge.com
30 January 2012
  • Summary: Sony’s PlayStation Vita represents the company’s second entry into the volatile handheld gaming market. The original PlayStation Portable found reasonable success as a largely traditional system, with console-style games being bought in boxes from stores just like other PlayStations, but the portable gaming market has changed in the six years since that console launched.
  • Pros: Amazing screen, Excellent controls, Well-designed OS, Good launch lineup
  • Cons: Inconsistent apps, Multiple accounts are a no-go, Expensive proprietary memory, Limited 3G use not worth price of admission
