Searching for the perfect form of relaxation? Why not play a game! And the best way to do it is to use Play Station Vita – once called a wolf in a sheep’s clothing. The reason for such a name is simply understandable, as this device has jumped many steps forward when compared to the other play stations.
Big & Light
When thinking of the world’s most powerful handheld console, the size would definitely be an influencing factor. The same same can be said of the PS Vita with its 5-inch OLED screen, which is as big as the entire PSP Go console was.
Regardless of the size (and weight) of the PS Vita, there are vast advantages. The first major advantage is that when held, it actually weighs a lot less than it’s predecessors. Another amazing advantage it has over other PS devices is that it is the first and only one with WiFi. Yep, it operates with WiFi.
Thanks to the 32-bit Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore CPU which the PS Vita has, there is no doubt that it is a powerful device. This is the same sort of processor found in the iPad 2. Graphical grunt is thus supplied by the A9’s defacto GPU of choice, and a similar quad core PowerVR Series5XT SGXMP+ chip, which makes the Vita more graphically capable than the iPhone 4 or the iPad 2, despite its far more modest price point.
Remote Play & Media
One of Sony’s strong points is remote play availability. This means you can play PS3 games on the PS Vita over a network. Some titles already successfully work and Sony doesn’t table cards about its further innovations regarding the remote play.
As for media, the Vita focuses on the commonly used ones, such as music, video, and photo.
There were rumors that Sony wanted to economize on PS Vita construction and make the internal storage 256MB. Nevertheless, it made it final decision on 512MB and a possibility to use one of Sony’s proprietary Vita memory cards, which you can easily order on Jiji.
It is essential to concentrate more attention on the battery strength of devices like play stations. To be honest, the Vita’s battery has nothing special to show. As compared to iPad 2 10-hours long capabilities, one can squeeze as much as 5 hours play out of the Vita. And that’s with screen brightness turned right down and WiFi turned off etc. Overall, one can be assured of 4-hours play in real-world conditions.
Despite all the niggles and small shortfalls, Play Station Vita remains the best gaming device for now. If you plan on playing puzzle games, stick to your smart phone or tablet. But if you need a monster to play crazy games, Jiji will provide you with the range of PS Vita devices that no iPad is capable to replace.
