I think the vita is the only true portable this gen around. The 3ds in my opinion need a graphics face lift and the loss of the 3ds useless tech. Add an online system that unify across both thier portable and home system.
I can't get too excited about this because it's only been announced for Japan so far. But I would be all over this for the streaming the PS4 to another device.
Compared to other handhelds it's a long way off the pace. It's never going to make up ground already lost to the DS/3DS. Also iOS and Android devices have a far greater user base which is only going to increase. Sony are now relying on the PS4 to ship Vita systems.
It sold out in 24 hours, how could it sell any better? lol. That would be nice though. The other features make it worth it though. Using a Dualshock 3 and remote play your PS4 to other devices. Freaking cool. 100$ is a bargain.
There's also a slimmer handheld version of the current Vita coming out in Japan. No confirmation for a release in the US or Europe so far.
No, it's a Vita that plugs into your TV. It doesn't have a screen. It's kinda like a tiny Vita set top box.
If they had made this possible for the current Vita it would have sold double the amount of units that it has so far.
Actually really looking forward to getting a decent way of playing PSP games on a big screen, the component cable was a joke. Pity there hasn't been a PSN release of Crisis Core though.
Finally some useful videos from TGS start to show up.
The interface looks reasonably swift. I can see myself getting one of these or one of the android consoles coming. I'm once again going away, housesitting over the weekend. Lugging my desktop along isn't the most fun thing ever and I can't afford a laptop, currently. A small gaming device & internetbrowser would be perfect. Does this support a full size keyboard btw?
It does have an internetbrowser and some sort of videoplayer right?. It would be great to see those in action.
Anyway thanks, Dan & Jess, for showing the menus and game startup.
Wow. Been ages since i saw that old PS1 start up.
