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
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.
Summary: The PlayStation Vita is not only a strong sequel to the PlayStation Portable, it's the best gaming handheld money can buy. This device features eye-popping graphics on a stellar screen, a strong starting lineup of games and excellent controls. Sony has also done a nice job of integrating the touch screen and touchpad into the gameplay, allowing players to tailor their own style of play.
Pros: Most powerful portable gaming device ever, Tight dual analog controls, Fantastic OLED display, Fast charge time
Cons: Lacks multitasking capability, No Flash Support, Proprietary PlayStation Memory card, Only supports 3G data
Summary: Sony's latest contender is a little late to the game, nearly a year following the 3DS' debut. Still, the Vita is technically a stronger player. Sony's new portable eclipses Nintendo's latest on more battlefields than ever before, outclassing it not only in graphical output, but in touchscreen technology, controls and button layout, user interface design and, perhaps most importantly, game selection at launch. So is that enough for it to pull ahead of the competition?
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
