If you're serious about portable gaming, the Sony PlayStation Vita is a must-have device. Coupled with a gorgeous 5-inch OLED gameplay is superb, thanks to the dual analog sticks and very responsive face buttons. The handheld's touch-only UI is a breeze to manage but the use of proprietary memory cards is a blemish on an otherwise outstanding product.
When it comes to pure performance, the PlayStation Vita is the best dedicated handheld gaming console you can buy.
- Rear touchpad works well, permits unique gameplay.
- Light and durable design with excellent controls.
- Big, beautiful OLED screen.
- Onboard 0.3 megapixel cameras are terrible.
- Middling battery life.
- Overpriced proprietary memory cards.
