Fell in love with it, cant wait for some more games to come out!!
PRO's: for a handheld, this thing rocks! just like having a ps3 on the go. love the graphics. the xmb is faster to navigate with the touch screen. while in game the touch screen enables the developers to add additional buttons along the sides of the screen closest to your thumbs for easy access. I find that to be quite innovating. CON's: not enough games(no worries though there will be more to come). felt the touch screen isn't as a responsive all the time. you need to tap the screen a number of times. i can see this being a problem in some online competitive games. memory cards cost half what the systems worth. analog sticks are going to need some getting used too. over- all, give it some time but i feel like this system is going to be something worth investing in

For the most part the system does what I need it to. I am guessing that the hardware was just a bit old so the builtin WiFi is spotty, and the memory card has gone out once already. Still I can play my games
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Pre-owned

I love psvita for its graphics, sound, and compatibility with PS3.
Mine has a $40 sticker instead of a $55 sticker. It includes a 8GB memory card so that I can use psvita immediately out of the box. If I sign up for 3G from AT&T, I will get a free download game. The psvita has already frozen from unexpected error for several times since I bought it. After rebooting the system, it will be fine. The battery life is short for handheld gaming devices. After I play DOA5+ for 3-4 hours, the battery will be drained and required charging. Personally, I like psvita for having two analog sticks, which is useful for many games, whereas my Nintendo 3DS has only one flat, thumb analog disc, which is not very useful for fighting game like DOA Dimensions. The sound output is very good only if we use a headphone. A good headphone on psvita can deliver a very strong bass. The built-in speakers next to the 2 analog sticks do not have any bass and is hard to tell the sound direction. I bought psvita mainly for playing DOA5+. psvita has a significantly better graphic (resolution-wise) and bigger screen than my Nintendo 3DS; of course, psvita does not support 3D graphics and 3D photo capture. The resolution of DOA5+ during any fight is lowered to preserve the frame rate, and the difference is not noticeable during the fight but is noticeable if we capture a still picture; otherwise, all the movies and pre-fight scenes are in full resolution without detectable pixelation. psvita is compatible with PS3. psvita can be linked to any PS3 as a controller or to back up pictures/data. psvita can also be linked to a PC to back up pictures/data. Many games, such as DOA5+, can be "cross-played" on psvita and PS3 at the same time. For DOA5+, I can cross-played with even the XBOX360 users as well. Rumors says that psvita will be compatible with PS4, and ALL (?) PS4 games will be playable on psvita, so it is a good investment to get a psvita. Just like PS3 and Wii, psvita is gear towards hardcore handheld gamers while 3DS is gear towards kids/amateur gamers, respectively. Read full review

A fine handheld gaming experience, with a formidable library of games!
As others may state, this is the finest handheld console I have ever owned. It goes well beyond gaming experiences that I could otherwise find on my iPhone or tablet. Cramming a beautiful screen, button layout, gyroscope, and graphics capabilities into a single device, I am really enjoying it. I have played through guacamelee (probably one of the toughest platforming games I've seen in a while) and the buttons and control sticks do not interfere with the precision demanded to succeed at that game. Cross save and cross buy are really neat functions, as well. I am really looking forward to owning a PS4 and leveraging this system as a second screen. Also I would argue that the library of (good) games for this system is growing steadily. Cons: The UI at times feels a little clunky and apps like web browsing and facebook just seem pointless (but probably not if you don't own a smartphone or touch system). The cameras should never be considered remotely good for taking pictures or video. I feel that they are utilized well for in-game use (Tearaway). Read full review

An AMAZING Next Generation Portable with a wide variety of games!
The Playstation Vita was first codenamed the Next Generation Portable (NGP) and it lives up to the name. With high-end graphics comparable to the PS3, dual analog, OLED multi-touch screen technology and a back touchpad, the Playstation Vita really is next generation compared to abysmal hardware like the 3DS, which relies on a 3d gimmick to sell and has an awkward control scheme. Contrary to belief, the Playstation Vita has a wide variety of games available in the Playstation Store. Want an action adventure? Uncharted: Golden Abyss can solve that. Want a racer? Wipeout 2048 and Need For Speed Most Wanted can help you with that. Not only that but 2013 is going to be even better for the Vita, in terms of game selection. Killzone Mercenary, Tearaway, Soul Sacrifice, Warrior's Lair, Phantasy Star Online 2 (a Free2Play), and Bioshock as some notable exclusives that will be coming out. There is virtually no complaints on my part on the Vita's hardware. The LiveArea Menu is intuitive, the apps are easy to navigate and YouTube works amazingly well, even better than on Android. Are you a gamer interested in gaming on the go? Then the Vita is for you! Read full review
