Sony PlayStation Vita Slim (PCH-2000)

 

Even though it still uses Sony's own pricey memory cards, the slimmer, less-expensive new version of the PlayStation Vita is improved in nearly every way.

Feels much thinner and lighter than the original PlayStation Vita. LCD screen is crisp and vibrant. Micro USB port. Lots of classic games available over PlayStation Network

Still uses Vita memory cards. Native Vita game library isn't as compelling as that of the Nintendo 3DS

The original Sony PlayStation Vita was an impressive piece of technology. While the Nintendo 3DS has clearly relegated it to second place in the handheld game system market, the Vita's hardware is objectively better. Unfortunately, at $300, it was very...

Sony PlayStation Vita Slim review

 

Going up against Nintendo in the handheld wars is like being an adventurer in an old-school RPG off to slay a mysterious monster in a cave — at some point there must be a voiceover from an old man who tells you solemnly “Many have tried, all have failed.”

Lighter and slimmer ; Longer battery life ; Better access to touchscreen and touch pad

OLED screen replaced by LCD ; No major upgrades ; Still costs $200 ; Forcibly bundled with Borderlands 2 ; Forcibly bundled with 8GB card

The PlayStation Vita Slim contains no enormous upgrades, but it is a modest improvement to an already strong handheld.

PlayStation Vita TV review: Sony's first mini-console has some growing pains

 

Sony had a tiny surprise to share just ahead of the Tokyo Games Show: the PS Vita TV, appearing from inside SCE President Andrew House's jacket pocket. H

The cheapest, most portable way to remotely play your PS4 on another TV ; Plays PS1 and Vita games using a full-sized DualShock controller ; Reasonably priced

Doesn't play every Vita game, excludes some important ones ; Video services need more work, content ; Same UI as the Vita, but harder to use without a touchscreen

The Vita TV can play PS1 and Vita games, and, if you have a PS4, you can use Remote Play, too. It's cheap, but the video services are limited, both in content and picture quality. For now, it may be a Japan-only experiment, but it has potential,...

PS Vita review (2013)

 

The PS Vita hasn't exactly gone according to Sony's plan. Unveiled in Tokyo at the start of 2011, the PSP's successor was supposed to be a world-beating handheld console with PS3-level graphics and smartphone sensibilities. But despite strong reviews...

More comfortable, colorful design ; Standard Micro USB charger ; Growing indie game support

LCD display is a downgrade ; Few AAA titles ; OS still drowning in bubbles

One part console, one part high-tech accessory

PlayStation Vita review (2013)

 

It's about time Sony's next-generation handheld got a redesign. Not that the new PS Vita is so different from the original models. The screen's no

Thinner, lighter, more comfortable ; Improved battery life ; No more proprietary charging cables

Vita memory cards are overpriced ; We prefer the original Vita's OLED screen

The new Vita offers plenty of improvements over the original, especially with battery life. If the PS4's Remote Play functionality works as promised, the Vita could be an even more tempting option a few months down the road.

PlayStation Vita review

 

Look familiar? It should: that's the PlayStation Vita, Sony's up-and-coming challenger to the mobile gaming throne. It's made the rounds a few times

Superb 5-inch OLED touchscreen ; Intuitive, snappy UI ; Comfortable button layout and dual-stick controls

Unimpressive camera ; Short battery life ; Dust- and fingerprint-magnet

The PS Vita is easily the most advanced portable gaming device to date, but will live and die by software support. It's off to a good start, if you can swallow the sticker price.

Sony PlayStation Vita review (Japanese edition)

 

It's hard to believe that Sony's venerable first portable has just reached its seventh birthday. The PSP launched in 2004: a year when the Motorola RAZR

Intuitive, smartphone-esque UI ; Truly console-quality gaming ; Dual-analog controls ; Top-class OLED screen

Subpar battery life ; Loading games and other programs is sluggish

The PS Vita dwarfs all other portable contenders with sheer processing power. It's proudly a gamers' game console, but it comes at a premium.

Sony PlayStation Vita (3G/Wi-Fi)Review

 

While not without its frustrations, the PS Vita emerges as a viable new gaming-and-more platform.

With nimble operation and an attractive, graphics-driven interface, the versatile PS Vita pulls together the high-quality gaming, movies, music and more that we should expect from a modern multimedia device. A clear emphasis has been put on the games,...

Review: PlayStation Vita

 

Whether you consider it progress or a race to the bottom, Apple's iOS platform is gobbling up the gaming market. Nintendo's 3DS was far from perfect (read our review), leaving many looking to the Vita for gaming on the go. But is there a future for...

I adore this thing, and urge anyone who plays games to go and have a play with one at a store. Even if you decide to wait for a price drop, a bigger library of games, or a hardware revision, playing the Vita is like a little glimpse of the future...

Sony PlayStation Vita Slim review

 

The Vita's gone all trim for 2014, but is that enough to convince gamers on the fence to take the plunge? [updated with video]

Lighter, more ergonomic design Screen is actually more natural Remote Play is great Now has some built-in storage

1GB still isn't enough Feels less premium than original

It's an improvement in almost every way, but the new Vita Slim could have been even better
