With the PlayStation Vita from Sony, you’ll be able to continue your PS3 play – uninterrupted – between your PS3 and the Vita with compatible titles. You can even store a game in the cloud for access from anywhere. The PlayStation Vita has an Arm Cortex A9 (4 core) chip, a 5″ 960 X 544 OLED (16:9) multi-touch capacitive touchscreen, and a “six-axis motion sensing system (three-axis gyroscope, three-axis accelerometer), three-axis electronic compass.” It also has 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 3G connectivity through the AT&T Mobile Broadband Network on some models, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR (A2DP/AVRCP/HSP), front and rear cameras, a built-in microphone, and built-in stereo speakers. In addition to the dual analog sticks on the front, there’s a multi-touch capacitive touchpad on the back of the Vita to control gameplay. The release date is 2/22/12, and you can still pre-order from Sony. The WiFi model is $249.99, or you can pre-order the Launch Bundle with a WiFi/3G PlayStation Vita, 8GB memory card, one-month 250MB AT&T DataConnect Session Pass, and a free PlayStation Network game for $299.99.
