The popular new Sony PSP Vita is now on the market ready for pre-orders from Amazon and will be released at the end of the month. That is good news for PSP fans like myself. 🙂
The PlayStation Vita (プレイステーション・ヴィータ Pureisutēshon Vīta, also known as “PSVita” or “PSV”) is an upcoming handheld game console under development by Sony Computer Entertainment. It is the successor to the PlayStation Portable as part of the PlayStation family of gaming devices. It is set to release in Japan and parts of Asia in late 2011, and in Europe and North America in early 2012.
The handheld includes two analog sticks, a 5-inch (130 mm) OLED multi-touch capacitive touchscreen, and supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and optionally 3G. Internally, the Vita features a 4 core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor and a 4 core SGX543MP4 + graphics processing unit, as well as LiveArea as its main user interface, which succeeds the XrossMediaBar.
The device is fully backwards-compatible with all PlayStation Portable games digitally released on the PlayStation Network via the PlayStation Store, with the Vita’s dual analog sticks supported in select PSP games; graphics will be up-scaled, with smoothing to reduce pixelation.
