PlayStation Vita

A new and improved successor to the Sony PlayStation Portable handheld gaming device.  The PlayStation Vita, or PS Vita, debuted in February 2012 with a 5″ multi-touch OLED touchscreen, GPS and Bluetooth capabilities,  support for Wi-Fi and (optionally) 3G via AT&T’s Mobile Broadband Network, cross-platform multiplayer gaming, front and rear multi-touch pads and cameras, Six Axis motion sensor technology and dual analog sticks.

The PlayStation Vita also offers unique cross play capabilities that enable a user to start playing a game on their PlayStation 3 (PS3) console and then pause the game and resume it on their PlayStation Vita without losing any game data. The PlayStation Vita costs $249, and in addition to offering PlayStation Vita-specific games, the PS Vita also offers support for more than 250 digital PlayStation Portable (PSP) games.
