Sony’s portable Dumper machine PlayStation Vita stands together with the first games in the shops. Can she meet the high expectations? And what are the games? Our test gives you the answers.
The official release date for the PlayStation Vita, fans had February 22, 2012, already long red marks in the calendar. Now it’s time, the object of desire is in hand. A good feeling: Weight and dimensions are well matched. Known by its predecessor, PlayStation Portable, like the control crosses and the PlayStation buttons, as well as the two buttons controls top right and left, are reflected also on the Vita. Otherwise, everything is new: the central element is the 5-inch capacitive OLED multi-touch screen. Left and right two thumbsticks, which especially shooter and 3rd-person adventures more precise control can sit.
The power of four cores
Under the elegant processed housing, the quad-core processor working ARM Cortex A9. To join the 512 megabyte memory and a quad-core graphics processor with 112 megabytes of memory. The 3 g version of the PS Vita has a GPS receiver on board for navigation and location determination. Ever a camera to video chat or photography is located on the front and back. They are used also in virtual reality games like reality fighters.
Sony estimated 250 euro for the Wi-Fi version, 300 euro are due for the 3G-Variante. The exclusive network provider Vodafone PS Vita for 49.90 euros is plus the monthly contract costs about 10 euros. The Vita is not a cheap pleasure, especially since the games also fall with prices around 40 euros in the budget. Mainly hardcore gamers received a kind of Goose on the hand.
For which version – Wi-Fi or 3 G – you ultimately choose, depends on the applications. Who on the road doesn’t necessarily need the online connection for multiplayer games, which can also confidently choose the Wi-Fi version; This applies especially to Smartphone owners who are anyway fitted in terms of mobile Internet. Another option is to get a second card (multi-SIM) from the network provider and to use the existing data contract.
Providing a la Sony
That Sony goes their own way in terms of storage medium, was to be expected. There are three different PS Vita memory cards 4 (to 20 euros), 8 (to 35 euros) or 16 gigabytes of memory (around 50 euro). We recommend you to access because the games are fairly memory-intensive (500 MB to 3.5 GB) at the 16-gigabyte version.
In advance has been speculated in the relevant fora wild with what operating system, PS Vita would go at the start. Here, Sony – builds similar as in the card – its own ecosystem. Instead of cobble along x any Android system, it was giving the Vita an own operating system. The menus are provided with different icons, allowing any move with a long pressure. This is usually good, but not as easy as in the most Smartphone operating systems.
Also the menu landscape seems not always self-explanatory icons above all, still a little rough. An OLED display with this resolution should be a little more for the eye in it. The operation is, however, very liquid hand, once you get used to a few quirks in the control logic.
And how to play it?
Liked above all see the games available to mark start “uncharted Golden abyss”, because it exploits the potential of the PlayStation Vita really well. So, you can use the touch interface on the back to turn the treasures and other finds in the hands or to climb ropes. Dusty surfaces are cleaned with the touch screen – simply awesome! Together with Wipeout 2048, uncharted has also the best graphics among the launch titles. Other games look like ModNation racers road trip and Ridge Racer, however, still a little uncooked. Here, however, the game developers are in demand.
