PlayStation Vita Build
The PSVita looks like an old PSP due to its design, but it does not fail to impress. It is not hard to love the aesthetic of this handheld game console. Its 5-inch OLED screen cannot be accommodated with the old design so another centimeter is added to it, which is not much of a significant addition to the size of the portable. Its size though cannot be easily accommodated in your pocket and it can occupy a fairly large space in your bag. It is quite light, lighter than what you would have expected it to be given its size. However, we were carrying the entire kit around without its battery pack.
One thing for sure though is that Sony has managed to develop the handheld console at a size that is still convenient for the users. There are no big additional features for smartphone controls, no square edges, just ergonomic considerations that are certainly appreciated.
Users can play even for several hours without taking toll on your busy hands. In fact, Sony has carefully studied the PSP and managed to correct its flaws with PS Vita emulator. For instance, they have already incorporated a more responsive dual analogue, rounded edges, and smaller buttons that are better for the hands. If you play Uncharted: Golden Abyss, It would be like playing the game in a PS3, especially when you consider shooting your enemies at a long distance. This feature works well with PSVita’s easy to use joysticks and higher screen resolution, which is two times better than that of the original PSP. Moreover, playing FIFA and Call of Duty in this new handheld can bring you more joy.
There are many changes with the controls used for PSVita. Touch screen is used to help you play using the comfortable Sixaxis button and motion controls. There are also rear and front cameras and a rear touch pad. All these features might seem like Sony is pushing for a gimmick or something sort of like it. This is something that you might think about when titling the handheld is necessary to gain control of character like Marble Madness PSV Rom instead of just using the rear touch panel or having to use the touch screen in Uncharted’s vine climbing moves instead of using the familiar buttons. However, this kind of apprehension may also be due to the adjustment that we needed while using the new functions. Sony is also obviously directing this handheld to another market, without having great consideration for the accelerometer anymore.
However, you have not seen the real workings of the controls if you haven’t played PSV Emulator Reality Fighters, which is almost similar to Street Fighter. This is a game that uses a lot of technological weapons. It follows the success of augmented reality games and some features of Face Raiders played on 3DS. PSV Chip game allows you to mold your own character through face scanning for a more accurate result. The rear camera of PSVita can be used in this game because you can play in the game with your character on the current setting that your camera is focused on. The game will be held in real-time, courtesy of augmented reality cards. However, one of the Sony producers told us that the cameras are designed as such to help give a user a 360-degree turn while shooting a room, office, or others. These shots can be sent to other players to be personalized even more. Sony also has a Near online network where battles can be made among users. All these things make this handheld more of a potential threat to the Nintendfo 3DS than what PlayStation Portable ever was.
