GAMING ; THIS WEEK We're Loving.. [People, The (England)]
(People, The (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SONY launched the long-awaited PlayStation Vita earlier this week.
The handheld console boasts a 5in touchscreen and a unique rear touch pad which enable users to control games using all their fingers at once.
There are also dual analogue sticks, stereo speakers, motion sensors and front and back cameras.
The Vita has access to both Twitter and Facebook allowing social gaming online - as well as a solo option. There's also an option to connect and play against PlayStation3 users.
There's a whole host of games launched at the same time.
All PSP (PlayStation Portable) releases are too, meaning there is access to a fantastic back catalogue of games at pocket-money prices.
With more people playing games on smart phones and the internet, Sony hopes the Vita's superior features and sharp graphics will encourage people to return to playing games on designated devices.
The hundreds of fans who queued for days to get their hands on the first Vitas sold in the UK this week certainly needed no convincing!
Available in two formats - with Wi-Fi (rrp pounds 230) or with 3G+Wi-Fi (rrp pounds 280) at Game and all good game and electronic retailers.
