Launching today Wednesday, 22 February, Sony's eagerly anticipated PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) is on track to transform the world of gaming and will be available in stores throughout Europe, the US, Africa, the Middle East and Australasia.
Sony’s latest portable gaming gadget is sure to delight fans and haul in droves of new devotees to their virtual fold. Incorporating a 12,7 cm OLED touchscreen display and a multi-touch rear pad, it allows users to interact directly with games in 3D-like motion and “touch, grab, trace, push and pull” finger action. It also features two analogue sticks that enable a wider range of game genres to be brought into the portable experience.
Featuring Wi-Fi and 3G network connectivity, together with a number of applications, it gives you the opportunity to play with friends anywhere in the world. For example, one pre-installed app, called “Near”, lets you share gaming information and other location-based gaming features. The “Party” app (also pre-installed) allows you to enjoy voice or text chat not only during online gaming, but also while playing games or using different applications. Social networking and communication services such as
Facebook, Skype and Twitter are available. Price: about R3 500. Visit http://za.playstation.com/psvita
