This review is from: PlayStation Vita - Wifi (Video Game)
After playing around with it for a while, I can finally give my verdict on the PS Vita. I think that it is an amazing device. As a late adopter of the PSP, I was disappointed at how quickly the PSP became obsolete compared to smartphones. The Vita is my solution to all those problems. There are just so many things I love about the device that I will just list them instead of writing a long review.
-Incredible 5 inch OLED screen. Maybe the best screen on any handheld device ever. Once you watch movies or play PSP games on it, you will never want to go back to a PSP. It makes them look their absolute best.
-Amazing graphics. I don't really need to explain this one, just watch any gameplay video. With games this impressive at launch, it makes me excited to see what will be coming in the future.
-Great interface. Some don't like it, but I love the UI that has separate apps (I like to think of them as programs) running at the same time, and you can easily get to ones in the background by hitting the home button.
-Cool community aspect. With stuff like Near, cross-game chat (excellent microphone), friends app, and group messaging, you really feel connected to your community.
My only real complaint with the system is the battery life. I have been playing Uncharted GA at 75% brightness, and I usually get around 4-5 hours on a single charge, granted, Uncharted is the most graphically impressive Vita game. Other than that, I am in love with this device. If you have $249, don't hesitate to buy this machine, especially if you have a PS3. Having a PS3 in tandem with the Vita will make downloading demos and transferring items back and forth that much easier. Highly recommended!
