If you’re willing to shell out money on the latest handheld game console by Sony Computer Entertainment, PlayStation Vita, I’d suggest you to give it a second thought, because it’s nowhere near iPod Touch. In the rest of the article you’ll encounter three of many reasons why to stick to iPod Touch.
Size always matters:
With Herculean size of Vita, it has become next to impossible to carry it in our pockets and move around. Sony has designed it in such a way that larger display and some other features makes its size to be 3.289” X 7.2” X 0.73”.
iPod Touch revolutionized mobile gaming with its compact and handy features. Whenever one feels like playing, even on the toilet, he needs not to think twice if he’d an iPod Touch in his pocket. But in case of planned moves, like if you have a flight or a bus booking, you may carry Vita with yourself. At the same time who has so much time to spare to add another thing in the check-list.
Vita is way too expensive for most of us. Let’s take the price list in Amazon, where the Wi-Fi version of Vita costs 200 odd sterling, while the 3G version has a tag of around 270 sterling. Moreover, you have to shell out around 40 sterling more to get one game & a 4GB memory card from Amazon. This takes your minimum cost of playing a game, on Vita to 265 sterling.
Is only the home console gaming experience apt?
Although while playing on your Vita, you may experience a mobile PlayStation 3 experience on your palm, you must think is it all that you wanted? In fact, I’ve experienced that while coming down from the 25th floor in an elevator; my game didn’t get loaded by the time I reached the ground floor. Even though, the home console gaming experience is encountered on this handheld one, sometimes the loading time may really piss you off.
Now it’s up to you to give a second thought on your pending decisions regarding the handheld game consoles.
