My PS Vita Review, can it rival against 3DS?

If you are into video gaming, you must be aware of the latest release of the PS Vita which has made its launch in Japan last December. While the future of the portable device is still uncertain, PS Vita does embed a lot of advanced features to make it stand out.

With advances in technology, new gaming devices are expected to have improvement in graphics, as well as new capabilities. To begin with, the PS Vita has a dazzling colorful organic light emitting display as the front. Like the 3Ds, it supports multi-touch. There are also cameras on the front and the rear. What separates PS Vita from other gaming devices is probably the built-in motion sensors. This can create a dynamic gaming experience. A recent title Gravity Rush has fully demonstrated the power of the sensors.

When you first come across PS Vita, you will notice that you have to buy a memory card before you can run a game. The memory cards are designed specifically for the Vita, and they look like the SD cards we use. These cartridges can effectively cut down the chance of piracy. The memory cards are available in various sizes to suit your needs from 4GB to as much as 32GB.

The controls follow the similar layout of the PSP. If you are an experienced PS3 gamer, you would not have difficulties to familiarize yourself with the controls.  While the game library is still limited considering just a short period of release, there will be more exciting titles coming soon in future. As a traditional console gamer, I am pretty impressed with what PSV has delivered and effectively see myself getting more engaged in portable games than ever.

A brief glance at the device features:

  • Multi-touch 5-inch organic light emitting display (OLED) as the front display
  • Multi-touch pad on the rear of the device
  • Dual analog sticks
  • Two digital cameras (front and rear)
  • Software titles on small, Vita-specific flash memory-based cards
  • Three motion sensors, gyroscope, accelerometer and electronic compass
  • Advanced and fast Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Free PlayStation Network access, including trophy support and new Vita features “LiveArea” and “Near”
  • Vita can play PSP titles, minis, PS one classics, video and comics from the PlayStation Store

It is no coincidence that many users have an overall positive experience with PSV on Amazon. Indeed,  over 50 customers give a 5-star rating for this new generation gaming device. Most of them are satisfied with the graphics and numerous gaming capabilities. The online network play also offers convenience for competitive gaming anywhere. While some find the memory card a bit costly, it does not diminish the entertainment value attained from PSV. In addition, there is likely a drop in price for the memory cartridges soon when more developers engage the market and start the production. Though it is still early to determine whether PSV can compete with 3DS at this stage, the potential of PSV cannot be underwhelmed.  In fact, more major game projects are on the way of development, including the popular Call of Duty series.
