Engadget Review

PlayStation Vita review (2013)

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.

Pros
  • Thinner, lighter, more comfortable
  • Improved battery life
  • No more proprietary charging cables
Cons
  • Vita memory cards are overpriced
  • We prefer the original Vita's OLED screen
