i have a PS3 and an old PSP 1000. the graphics on the Vita are great, great sound and good battery life.... there are not that many games that i found interesting but that is just my preferences.
the price could be lower, but it still reasonable.
The only things that i really did not like are:
The fact that for transferring even a small image into a vita, you need both the content manager installed on your PC AND a ACTIVE internet connection. even with the PS3 you need to be logged in to the PlayStation Network..
and then you have the Hyper-overpriced memory cards, yeah they are a Proprietary format....
but they could have just used a simple micro-SD card with a special format much like the PS3's hard drive,even if you plug it in a PC it just won't be able to access the file in it, an d for the speed problem just say use class 4 or higher, which the the Vita's card work at about a micro-SD class 4 speed.. which costs about $20 for 32GB... far less that $100 they priced their cards.
this system is insane. it makes a complete laughing stock out of the 3ds, even at its higher asking price. then factor in the processor is faster than an xbox360, has netflix, a second analog stick(which controls great) has a competent web browser, the cameras aren't too awesome, but they're much much nicer than a standard webcam. and a 25 game launch(second most games for a system release ever). a nice surprise about it,is it has a substantially improved directional pad, and although the face buttons are smaller than a ps3 controller, i dare say its even better for fighting games like ultimate marvel vs. capcom 3(due to the dpad). speaking of UMvsC3, its graphics are exactly as gorgeous as the PS3 version hooked up to a 37in 720p tv. i have no idea how this is possible. sony basically combined a ps3 and a tablet, with little sacrifice on either side. the screen is beautiful, and has a great touch interface. rear touch pad is fine, not really great or bad. the motion controls are pretty fun too. better than a six-axis controller motion i would say. pretty much the only thing i could say is a negative is battery life is a bit lacking, but not worse than what i expected.
This is probably the funnest handheld gaming unit ever. Ultimately games make the machine and unfortunately the Vita's game library isn't really extensive. I did enjoy the limited games the vita offers. Hopefully in the next few years there will be a lot more to come. The graphics, sound, dual analogs, and everything else is great. I even like the touch screens control in some games. It is very interactive. Three things hold it back- 1) battery life seems pretty weak, game selection at this time is a little lacking, and finally the price of memory cards is ridiculous. More games and lowering the price of the memory card would make this the greatest hand held ever.
This is the best handheld console out there. If you have any interest buying this, PLEASE I urge you to do so. This is the only system I use for gaming, and it is well worth it. The games for it are good, and with #1 titles just around the corner, NOW is the time to buy this console.
As regards to dislikes, personally I would bring up 3G. It's almost useless for gaming. It can only be used for "near", or just signing into your account just to see what's going on. It's not reliable for much else, sadly. Also, $30 dollars per month is a bit expensive for most, so take that into consideration. (NOTE: This is my personal opinion on the 3G, man others may have enjoyed it, just not me)
The only competitor to this is the 3DS, which I believe is left in the dust by this piece of heaven. There is a QUAD core processor in the Vita. That's right. 4 processors. That's better than the ipad 2. The screen is a 5in" OLED touch screen with a rear touch panel to interact with games. Its HD screen looks marvelous. Watching a video on youtube does not justify the excellence of the screen. You can just look at comparison videos of the 2 consoles for yourself to see.
All in all, This console deserves a 9.5/10. Almost perfect, but then again, nothing is perfect, but this is as close as you'll get to perfection. :)
ok here i go! listen up im going to tell you straight up about this game system this PSV is the top of the line (RIGHT NOW) and it is a wonderful machine 5inch screen touch screen and ect. but i have no doubt that they will come with a SLIM PSV sooo whats the whole point right? i do give it up to the apps the PSN (playstation network) has to offer like youtube netflix facebook cameras (2)front and back set your wallpaper at the dashboard liltle things like that is what makes it special i like this system but im not totally inlove i like the graphics but it could of been a liltle more cheeper what i think it is 4/5 so that it is a liltle pricey but its ok i believe it could have been lot better and the system can easily get smudges everywhere not just the screen but the entire system back and front so i recommend screen protection as well hope this comes in handy to you all thanks for reading :)
