The all new PlayStation game console is already in stores and pre-ordered devices are shipped to their new owners. PS Vita is offered at £230 in UK and around $250 in US stores.
So what is new for PS Vita and what are the main differences between it and the PSP.
Vita, which means “life” in Latin, was chosen as the most appropriate name for the next generation portable entertainment system as it enables a revolutionary combination of rich gaming and social connectivity within a real world context as SCE aims to transform every aspect of a user’s daily life into an entertainment experience and an opportunity to play.
PS Vita incorporates a beautiful 5-inch multi-touch organic light emitting diode (OLED) as the front display and a unique multi-touch pad on the rear.
As it may be expected PS Vita is especially designed for games with a stunning screen and dual analog sticks.
