Excerpt: I love the PS Vita. Dual analog gaming on the go with top tier games. The Vita helped me learn to play console FPS games; something about the screen and the stick being right next to each other was what my brain needed.
Excerpt: Sony knows hardware. The handheld feels great, and I feel like I have large hands. The thumbsticks take a few minutes to adjust to, but work fine. Hardcore, console-esque titles work flawlessly, quick, simple titles are aided by real controls. The rear touch-pad keeps less precision based actions...
Summary: I love my Vita, it took some getting use to, but after a week I understood everything on it. After a week though, i started noticing scratches after just putting it in an empty pocket about 15 times, it doesn't have a durable screen at all, my suggestion with it if you plan on buying one is that you also buy a Zagg Shield and a hard shell case.
Pros: Very portable, responsive touch screen, perfect size, easy to use, light and can survive a drop
Summary: I love this thing, it's a powerful little device, and an amazing one, the graphics are great, and the anolog sticks help A LOT however it's a little expensive, and so are the memory cards, even a price drop of like $10 on the memory cards would be very helpful.
Pros: Large 5" screen. Very responsive touchscreen. Two analog sticks make gaming more natural. Front and rear facing cameras are of sufficient quality and perfect when using Skype. Apps like Facebook are readily available. Great game selection.
Cons: Proprietary accessories cost a lot (i.e. memory cards) Battery life is a bit short (I get roughly 5-6 hours) No Windows Explorer access, only available through PS Vita Content Manager.
