Sony PlayStation Vita Replaces the PSP
Sony recently released its latest game console in the market. The PSP may have been revolutionary for its time, but the Playstation Vita seems ready to blow it away.
PlayStation®Vita System Features
The new Playstation Vita is available in both WiFi and WiFi/3G options, with the latter powered by AT&T’s Mobile Broadband Network. Gaming will never be the same, with real-time scores and game-ranking news feeds now available. Competitive multi-player game sessions are now possible. Gaming is done at the speed of the mobile life-style.
Front and rear cameras are built-in with the new system. Amazing augmented reality game experiences are possible when the gamer transports his world or himself into the game with the use of both cameras.
The system’s Six Axis motion sensor technology actively engages with the game like never before. The gamer is free to discover how to manipulate his game environment, engage with characters, and utilize the tools within by touching, steering, and tilting the Playstation Vita system.
Playstation Vita boasts a stunning, 5-inch OLED display of approximately 16 million colors. The multi-touch screen offers new ways to complete game challenges and actions. Its rear multi-touch pad gives the gamer greater hand control while freeing up the brilliance of the front OLED screen.
The 3G/WiFi system has a built-in GPS function that allows the gamer to locate, connect, and play with friends.
The Playstation Vita offers Cross Play, whereby the gamer can play games across the Playstation system, picking up where he left off after pausing on an earlier game. The gamer can also join in multi-player games in his Vita and play against other gamers on their PS3 consoles. For a fully immersive first-person shooter experience, dual analogue sticks controllers are available.
About two dozen games were launched alongside the new system; the PlayStation Store has also been updated for the launch, with Netflix, Twitter, and Flickr apps available for free download to the console.
Compared to the PSP
Vita’s stunning 5-inch OLED touch display offers a vibrant, crisp image compared to PSP’s 4.3-inch LCD that blurs at times. Powered by a quad-core graphics chip, its 960 x 544 pixels resolution is twice that of the PSP’s with only 480 x 272. It has two additional analogue sticks similar to but smaller than those found on the PS3, along with the digital pad, four main buttons, two shoulder buttons, and a single analogue nub that are found in the PSP. Storage is handled by proprietary flash cards that can hold up to 20 times more data than the PSP’s optical Universal Media Disc. It also uses a proprietary memory card unlike the Sony Memory Stick used by the PSP. Vita also now adds Twitter, Netflix, and Flickr to the web browser, music player, and picture viewer of the PSP. Exclusive to Vita is Near, a social gaming feature which lets the user view information on other Vita owners passively encountered to compare gameplay statistics as well as finding nearby Vita owners to game with.
Gorgeous graphics versatile control options, storage that’s up to the task, full on-line gaming capabilities, a wide world beyond gaming — with its feature upgrades, better graphics, sophisticated look and feel, and games that are closer to the full-console gaming experience than ever before, Sony’s Playstation Vita should be the go-to mobile gaming machine for teens, older gamers, and hard-core gaming fans.
The biggest challenge that Vita is facing right now is not against competing gaming console but to the ever upgrading features of smartphones. Smartphones had becoming versatile and manufacturers are also improving the gaming feature in each model. And with cheap cell phones arising these days, the sales for Vita could be greatly affected.
