Engadget Review

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.

Pros
  • Superb 5-inch OLED touchscreenIntuitive, snappy UIComfortable button layout and dual-stick controls
Cons
  • Unimpressive cameraShort battery life Dust- and fingerprint-magnet
