Joystiq's PlayStation Vita launch guide

Today marks the actual launch date for the PlayStation Vita! Sure, you may have had one for a week, but let's act surprised nonetheless. We continue to update our launch guide, to help you find all the game reviews and features you need to know about.
Hardware
  • PlayStation Vita review: "It offers the most power, the widest variety of input methods, and the most convenient method of getting new games, of any handheld system in history."

Games
  • Uncharted: Golden Abyss: "... though Uncharted: Golden Abyss brings a little too much reality to Drake's day-to-day by making him polish artifacts in gimmicky touchscreen nonsense, there's still a good, if formulaic, adventure to be had." ★★★ 1/2
  • Little Deviants: "So ... you get a virtual house filled with square-headed cats. You can't do anything with them. They just sit there. " ★★
  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: "Even with the trouble I had pulling off combos, and the frustration of feeling lost and alone in the lobby, I still think this is an amazing port in many respects. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a game I would consider far too flashy to fit on a handheld, and Capcom accomplished it." (no score given)
  • Lumines Electronic Symphony: "I come out of a 45-minute session feeling rested and kind of euphoric. How's that for an endorsement?"★★★★ 1/2
  • Touch My Katamari: "Touch My Katamari is the best portable Katamari ever made by default." (no score given)
  • Shinobido 2: "I must have killed the same fat merchant hiding in the same castle half a dozen times so far. To be fair, one time the merchant was wearing glasses, so it might have been a different guy." (no score given)
  • Escape Plan: "It might sound backhanded to praise the ability to skip content, but being able to get away from unpleasant situations is in the spirit of this escape-themed game." ★★★ 1/2
  • Army Corps of Hell: "I actually wish I had stopped playing after about, oh, five hours. Up to that point, Army Corps of Hell is a novel experience. "★★★
