About this deal

I'm still amazed every time I fire up stuff like Gravity Rush, Persona 4 or the dancing spin-offs on my Vita. Special motors in the controller can adjust the tension of the trigger buttons, adding to the feeling of immersion. In addition to these input methods, specific to just the Vita, is a secondary touchpad that is on the back of the device. I believe I read an article that the official position of Sony with regard to why the Vita failed is . Both Vita generations have quad-core Cortex-A9 processors, 512MB of RAM and 128MB of discrete video RAM.

A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.

inch phones of last year tended to use 1080p screens with four times the number of pixels as the Vita.

Despite the smaller userbase, the platform continued to be viable for game releases into 2017 due to the high attach rate of software sold per hardware user. With the success of the Nintendo Switch and Steam Deck handhelds moving into the 2020s, publications questioned Sony's decision to abandon the market.

The console is the successor to the PlayStation Portable, and a part of the PlayStation brand of gaming devices; as part of the eighth generation of video game consoles, it primarily competed with the Nintendo 3DS.

If you have a story about an updated app, one that's about to launch, or just anything Software-related, drop him a line. It felt cheap and I very much disliked the super big bezels around it and the quality of the screen was low too. Ahmad also maintained interest in the device by directly interacting with consumers on social media; the game Tales of Hearts R was localized into English only because it was number one in a survey of games desired on the platform.Multi-platform releases with the PS4 have also incidentally helped sustain the Vita's stream of software, even in the west, through 2016 and 2017; games receive a Vita version more to appeal to Japan's larger Vita user-base, and receive a PS4 version more to appeal to North America's larger user-base. Switch Lite is my new main console (took over from the Vita, only ‘moved on’ from the Vita as new games dried up). I think there’s a mod to adjust the colors on the LCD display to put it more in line with the OLED, but I could be wrong.

The system is regarded as a commercial failure in the video game industry, and was significantly outsold by the Nintendo 3DS. The Vita launched in the west with 25 titles, [42] including original titles such as Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Wipeout 2048, and ports of games such as FIFA 12 and Rayman Origins. Shuhei Yoshida, President of SCE Worldwide Studios revealed that his studio, despite usually being more involved with software, had a continued role in future hardware development at the time.

In 2023, Sony announced "Project Q", a controller with an 8-inch screen for the PlayStation 5 that would replicate the experience of remote play on a Vita or Off-TV Play of the Wii U GamePad. However, with the new Switch model bringing bigger storage, enhanced audio and of course, a bigger OLED screen, one can’t help but wonder that Sony’s PS Vita not only felt good to use, but it showcased games from twenty five years ago on a fantastic 5.
