Having just been to the Playstation Vita's preview event in London, it's clear that the Vita completely blows away the original PSP’s analog nub – and anything else out there right now.
In comes a huge 5in OLED (the O is for Organic) touchscreen that feels very repsonsive, and dual analog sticks. At last. Now you can achieve the same level of control you get at home on your PS3 console. There's also a touchscreen on the back, Wifi and a 3G partnership with Vodafone, plus a new emphasis on Augmented Reality games.The new LiveArea feature aims to provide a simple format for playing other Vita owners online.
The release lineup of games is impressive too - Wipeout 2048, a new shooter called Unit 13, a revamped Motorstorm, and, for all you Nathan Drake fans, Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Bring on February 22nd next year. £229 for the Wifi model, uk.playstation.com/psvita)
