First Look: Sony PlayStation Vita

1:21 /

At E3 2011, Brian Tong takes a First Look at the PlayStation Vita. Due in stores in time for the holidays, the Vita will come in Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi/3G models for $249.99 and $299.99, respectively.

Brian Tong here with CNET at E3 2011 and in my hand, we have a First Look at Sony's PlayStation Vita. Now the first thing you're gonna notice right off the bat, this gorgeous 5-inch OLED display, also the power of the graphics in this handheld, unlike anything we've seen before. They really touted that it was on, or almost on the level of PS3 graphics. I'm gonna tell you when I look at this, it's made me a believer. Now, some of the other features that this has, it has dual analog sticks, something we've been waiting for. Also some innovative touch play so this screen on the front is a touchscreen. It also has a touch panel on the backside that is incorporated in the gameplay for a variety of titles. Now, this device is equipped with Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi and 3G. AT&T will be the carrier here in the US. I know some of you might not be so thrilled about that but either way, if you wanna get access to data at any time, you have that ability. Now, the PS Vita also has a front-facing camera and a camera on the backside that can be used for, you know, augmented reality apps, but the models here available, there's two of them, the Wi-Fi version will be $249, it will be available some time in the holiday season, and the Wi-Fi and 3G version will be $299, but there you have it, the First Look at one of the most anticipated handhelds that I can remember and it feels really light and I can't wait to get my hands on this. There you have it. Brian Tong here, E3 2011, with the PS Vita.
