PlayStation Vita

 

PlayStation Vita proves the day of the handheld console is not over!

Near PS3-quality 3D graphics ; Great mix of traditional, touchscreen and motion controls ; Dazzling sub-HD OLED screen ; Strong built-in apps and exciting games line-up

Expensive for a handheld ; Unimpressive battery life ; Minor issues with Remote Play and media support

Impressively powerful and astonishingly feature-packed, PS Vita is - at least for now - the ultimate handheld games machine. With its touch-capabilities, augmented-reality cameras and motion-sensing capabilties it’s a versatile little beast that should...

Sony PS Vita review

 

Can Sony's new portable see off the 3DS and smartphone gaming charge?

Five-inch OLED touchscreen ; Quadcore processor ; Launch games line-up

Expensive ; Fiddly card ports ; Focus on core-gamers

Sony PlayStation Vita Slim review

 

The Vita's gone all trim for 2014, but is that enough to convince gamers on the fence to take the plunge? [updated with video]

Lighter, more ergonomic design ; Screen is actually more natural ; Remote Play is great ; Now has some built-in storage

1GB still isn't enough ; Feels less premium than original

It's an improvement in almost every way, but the new Vita Slim could have been even better

Pricey console, pricey accessories and pricey games, but for ‘proper’ gaming on the move the Vita is simply unbeatable

Sony PlayStation Vita Review: In Depth

 

In a post-App Store world, is there still room for a dedicated handheld games console? The Nintendo 3DS answered that question with a definite “maybe”, struggling at launch before picking up speed…

Excellent hardware ; Powerful

Games are expensive ; Storage should be cheaper

Sony PlayStation Vita review

 

When the Sony PlayStation Vita arrives, it'll face stiff competition. Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have become powerful, cheap and ubiquitous. And with great, inexpensive games readily available on a device that you're already...

As with any new gaming platform, the key to success for the PlayStation Vita is the development of sufficient great games, but we like the design and build of the Vita.

Sony PlayStation Vita review

 

Sony knows its way around a games console – the electronics giant has seen incredible success for more than a decade with the PlayStation, PS2 and PS3, but has so far struggled to break into the handheld market dominated by its rival Nintendo. Its...

An absolutely fantastic handheld that's ideal for anyone left feeling hollow from gaming on a smartphone

Sony PlayStation Vita Slim

 

Sony's spent the last two years trying to wrestle people away from smartphones and Nintendo's 3DS with its own PlayStation Vita, and for the most part, it has failed. However, recent releases such as Tearaway have provided some excellent games,...

The PlayStation Vita was a technically impressive handheld thanks mostly to its brilliant OLED screen. The PlayStation Vita Slim model is therefore something of a step back, and the lesser model if you value image quality above all else. In most...
