finally, official words on the Playstation Portable successor: the Playstation Vita. ‘Vita’ does sound a little off too me but according to Playstation ‘Vita’ means ‘Life’ in Latin which is what this next-generation portable entertainment system is all about. the PSVita as it is called, features a 5-inch multi-touch enabled organic LED (OLED) display and an unique multi-touch pad on its rear. Sony has also incorporated sixaxis into this device, thus allowing tilting to be included in games.

beside the familiar hard buttons, Sony has also incorporated two analog sticks which enable a wider range of game genres. however, the highlight is perhaps its ability to utilize the multitouch for gaming. perfect for lopping grenades and maneuvering across ridges. powered by ARM Cortex-A9 core processor, the PSVita also features two cameras (front and back), built-in stereo speakers and microphone and built-in GPS. game data storage is through the PSVita card slot and a memory card slot.

the Playstation Vita (PSVita) will be available globally starting the end of this year with retail price of $249 and $299 for the WiFi only model and the 3G/WiFi model respectively. check out a clip on this exciting portable gaming device after the break.
