So anyone that has been around me recently has had the pleasure of hearing me rant about the PS Vita and the changes it makes to handheld & social gaming. The reason this excites me is that this a perfect companion to a PS3, you may be thinking but what about the PSP? The PSP doesn’t compare to this, the PS Vita has been made specifically for avid gamers who appreciate high definition gaming. The PSP was a low resolution version of a PS3, it was like using a Wii compared to the the graphics of a PS3.
The gameplay experience on PS Vita is unmatched by any other mobile device in the market, providing new ways to interact through features such as its 5-inch OLED multi-touch screen and rear touch pad, dual analog sticks, dual cameras, and six-axis motion sensing system. PS Vita will also interact with the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) with compatible titles, offering multi-player gaming across both platforms and cloud-saving so consumers can play a game on one platform and pick up where they left off on the other.
PS Vita will draw consumers deeper into the gameplay experience by providing both 3G/Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi only models, enabling them to connect and play with the world around them, including their friends and other PS Vita owners. A variety of social networking and communications services such as Facebook, flickr, foursquare, Skype™, and Twitter will be available on PS Vita.

So we are looking at a gaming device from Sony which I believe will put them in the driver’s seat to create the ultimate connected home. When you take the opportunity to keep playing games using Sony’s Cross platform play, you know that you will start to get your fans hooked on their Playstation ‘experience’.
FIFA Football on the PS Vita
Imagine actually finishing 15 seasons in a FIFA title before the next FIFA gets released. Considering I play around 5 games of FIFA in a good week and there is around 40-45 games a season, I usually will get through 6-7 seasons per title. With a PS Vita, my games per week would go up to 10-15 which would mean I would easily finish all 15 seasons before the next title. So as you can probably tell, I really want a PS Vita & if you are like me you probably will too.
